Kathy Griffin is upset, you guys. See, she believes that, as Kathy Griffin, sheâ€™s entitled to a Netflix show. But Netflix decided to give one to Norm Macdonald instead. Clearly thereâ€™s a double standard at work here:
I can't get a Netflix special because I once had the audacity to share that a Netflix executive told me that because they had Chelsea Handler, they didn't need other womenâ€¦
Meanwhile, Norm Macdonald has a Netflix talk showâ€¦.
Double Standard? I think soâ€¦ https://t.co/wNlKik14j0

Thatâ€™s nice, dear.

Yeah, we canâ€™t imagine why Netflix wouldnâ€™t want to give her a platform.
Maybe, but I think it has more to do with him beingâ€¦you knowâ€¦funny.

It helps that he's funny. You could maybe try that?

Unlike her and Handler, Norm is funny. pic.twitter.com/GRGklvfVlT

Norm Macdonald has a Netflix talk show because he's funny. https://t.co/EeZ3g42gYO

He's funny and you're not.

Hi Kathy, it's because he's funny and you are not. Thanks.

Maybe there is a double standard â€¦ but itâ€™s this:
Agreed. Netflix has one standard for funny ppl, and a totally different one for folks like Kathy pic.twitter.com/XVCSsUSXgn

See, now thatâ€™s funny.
