Kathy Griffin Attacks Harvey Levin in Video: He’s ‘in Bed With Everyone’

Kathy Griffin attacked TMZ founder Harvey Levin in a video posted to Twitter and YouTube Saturday, and released his personal phone number.

In the video, Griffin blasted Levin, saying, “I just want you guys to know Harvey Levin, Harvey Levin a blogger, is very much in bed with everyone from Hollywood to Donald Trump.”

Griffin said she made the video as a result of TMZ’s fueling the fire that erupted after she received criticism for posting a photo in which she held a fake severed head resembling Donald Trump. Griffin apologized for the video but was nevertheless the subject of controversy, losing her job with CNN’s New Year’s Eve program. In August, Griffin retracted her apology and said the whole thing was “blown out of proportion” and that she “lost everybody.”

Near the beginning of the 17-minute video, Griffin plays a voicemail left by Levin on her cell phone in which he leaves his number for her to call back. “I don’t have a minute to call him,” she said, “but maybe you do.”

She also used the video to call out those who had “doxxed” her, describing her sister — who died in mid-September of cancer — and mother receiving death threats as a result of Griffin’s detractors obtaining their personal phone numbers. She also referred to Andy Cohen as a “miserable boss;” Cohen, who worked with Griffin on her show “My Life on the D-List,” joked that he didn’t know Griffin when asked by TMZ about her CNN replacement.
