Yesterday, comedian Kathy Griffin shared screencaps of emails she's received blacklisting her from industry events. She wrote,

After decades of hard work in this industry, it’s my opinion that this is not right nor justified. Yeah, I took one photo holding up a children’s Halloween Trump mask with ketchup on it…so what?
