In an except from a wide-ranging interview in Out, comedian Kathy Griffin lays into Caitlyn Jenner,
“Let me just cut to the chase: Of course I support Caitlyn and her journey, but as someone who’s worked in the LGBTQ community for many decades, most of the people that I know who are transitioning, or dealing with transition, are not like multi-millionaires who have full-time hair and make up squads and Versace bags. So what’s humorous about the series, and the reason that, thank God, I can make fun of her –because I make fun of everybody– is because, as we’re watching a show that’s supposed to be an important statement about people who transition, she’s really kind of an airhead.
She is a little clueless, yeah. And that is the part that is funny, because they bring in all these experts, like Professor Jenny Boylan, who’s a professor at Columbia University, so smart, and who’s really walked the walk — she decided to stay married to a woman. She’s just very knowledgeable. There’s one scene in I Am Cait where Jenny Boylan says to Cailtyn
‘I feel like I’m losing brain cells just talking to you.‘”
