Like maybe making movies that don't suck ass

Comedic goddess Kathy Griffin has revealed in an interview that she was pressured by director Steven Spielberg's people to apologize for a joke she made at the Golden Globes last year about 10-year-old War of the Worlds actress Dakota Fanning being in rehab:

“I get a call from the lawyers, and they’re, like, ‘DreamWorks … is furious about the whole Dakota Fanning thing, and they’re livid, and Spielberg is personally furious, and DreamWorks is putting you on a list, and they demand an apology,’ ” Griffin said.

“And I’m, like, ‘A list?’ I’m on the s- list? Who gives a s-? … Put me on your list. And Spielberg? Oh, what’s the matter? I’m not going to star in any more Steven Spielberg movies? Oh, no! What’ll I do with my time?

“Oh, and E! Channel called me: ‘We demand an apology.’ And I go, ‘OK, here’s your apology: You’d have to be a [bleep]ing idiot to not know I was kidding.’ And they’re, like, ‘Well, we can’t print that’ … It’s a joke. It’s a joke. I’m not going to apologize for jokes. Ten years old. It’s a joke.

Maybe Spielberg should find a better way to spend his, and his people's time.
