/// A&E Uses Kathy Griffin’s Quotes Against Her in Sneaky Emmys Ad

August 16, 2011  |  Media Week

So, two reality shows about sad, crazy people (A&E's Hoarders and Bravo's Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List ) are up for the same Emmy Award. But Griffin apparently loves Hoarders , and A&E is sneakily using that against her, featuring complimentary quotes from the comedian in Hoarders ads campaigning for the Emmy. “My favorite new show,” Griffin says in the A&E ads. “I'm obsessed with Hoarders .” ” Hoarders is so f#*@ing fantastic.” Kathy quickly responded with her own Emmy ad that slags A&E for its tactics. “Quoting me in an Emmy ad? Bravo, Hoarders . BRAVO,” she says in the ad. Griffin already has two Emmys, so how upset can she really be? No, really, I don't know if she's upset or not—her voice is the same horrible screech regardless of context. Full ads after the jump.
