Comedian Kathy Griffin has responded to her “friend” Amber Heard losing her lawsuit court battle against Johnny Depp by attacking Sarah Sanders.
Heard lost her defamation battle on Wednesday and was ordered by the court to pay ex-husband Depp $15 million dollars in damages for defaming him
The jury unanimously determined that Heard had fabricated her allegations of physical and sexual abuse against Depp to damage his reputation.
After Heard lost in court yesterday, Griffin suffered a meltdown while discussing the case during a radio interview with former White House correspondent Brian Karem.
Griffin said she “believed” Heard and was “disturbed” by the verdict as “a woman and a lifelong feminist.”
Despite the weeks-long court case determining otherwise, Griffin insisted that Depp was guilty of the allegations he was cleared of.
However, she soon changed her feminist tune when she started taking swipes at President Donald Trump’s former Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ appearance.
In unproved remarks, Griffin started making derogatory remarks about soon-to-be Arkansas Governor Sanders’ looks.
“Well, I am a friend with Amber Heard I completely believe her,” Griffin said.
“I don’t even know what the question is it’s actually really disturbing to me as a woman and a lifelong feminist.
“Also just you know what I mean there’s just been going on Hollywood about him being an abuser since Kate Moss is the first time I heard about.
“I heard about it and Winona Ryder when they were dating and he had a Winona forever owner tattoo and then she had her tattoo I think it was changed to El Diablo.
“Which is not a good sign.
“But I will say I cannot speak for these women but I wonder if they just changed their tune because nobody wants to get Amber Hearded it and I say that and I am a verb myself.
“I know that when it comes to, you know, political discourse nobody wants to get ‘Kathy Griffin-ed’ as I was very famously canceled and all that stuff but I’m…”
Brian Karem chimed in: “I’ve been Brian Karem’ed once or twice in the White House briefing room, I feel ya.”
Kathy said: “Oh I thought they were gonna physically throw you out a couple of times, especially Sarah Huckabee, she’s a sturdy gal, I thought she could have taken you, Brian, no offense.”
Karem: “Hey I was a middle linebacker I think I could hang.”
Kathy: “Like she wasn’t.”

Amber Heard responded to her loss by saying she’s “humiliated” before claiming the verdict is a “setback” for “other women.”
“The disappointment I feel today is beyond words,” Heard said.
“I’m heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence, and sway of my ex-husband.
“I’m even more disappointed with what this verdict means for other women. It is a setback. It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated.
“It sets back the idea that violence against women is to be taken seriously.
“I believe Johnny’s attorneys succeeded in getting the jury to overlook the key issue of Freedom of Speech and ignore evidence that was so conclusive that we won in the U.K.
“I’m sad I lost this case.
“But I am sadder still that I seem to have lost a right I thought I had as an American — to speak freely and openly.”
