In yet another since-deleted tweet by a left-wing media personality unfairly targeting Covington Catholic high schoolers, comedian Kathy Griffin posted a photo from one of the school's basketball games that she claimed shows the boys "throwing up the new nazi sign."
"Covington’s finest throwing up the new nazi sign," read the post, which included a picture of Covington Catholic High School basketball players holding up what anybody who's ever watched a game would recognize as a "three-point" symbol. Here's a screenshot of the since-deleted post provided by Twitchy:
As Twitchy points out, the screenshot has been making the rounds online, accompanied by some well-earned shaming of Griffin. Two examples will do:
As The Daily Wire reported Monday, Griffin, 57 — whose career crashed and burned after she posted an image of herself holding the decapitated head of Donald Trump — took to Twitter over the weekend to rebuke the school for what she called a "pathetic and impotent" response and suggesting that people should dox them.
"I want NAMES. Shame them. If you think these f***ers wouldn't dox you in a heartbeat, think again," she wrote.
She followed up that shameful post by doubling down on her call for doxxing the high school boys.
"Names please. And stories from people who can identify them and vouch for their identity. Thank you," she wrote in a post that she's thus far left up.
Griffin is one of the celebrities who has been specifically called out by Robert Barnes, the lawyer who has publicly volunteered to represent the Covington Catholic boys and their families if they choose to take legal action against those guilty of libel against them.
"Hey, @kathygriffin, if someone wants to serve you a libel & invasion of privacy suit for these kids, do they send it to @LisaBloom or is she still busy helping Harvey?" Barnes tweeted Sunday.
Barnes maintains that after video evidence emerged showing that the initial allegations against the boys were false, "No media member who refuses to retract at this juncture has any credible defense to libeling these kids." He has repeatedly called out specific media personalities and outlets threatening lawsuits if they fail to adequately retract their initial libelous reports.
The Daily Wire's Hank Berrien notes that Griffin's call for the boys' privacy to be violated follows reports of a lawsuit against Griffin and her 18-year-younger boyfriend Randy Bick filed in July by their next-door neighbors. The Wrap reports:
According to the suit, Griffin and Bick “undertook a campaign of secret electronic surveillance and recording almost immediately after taking up residence,” first with their iPhones, then with an audio-video surveillance system that was pointed directly into the Mezgers’ backyard “in order to spy on and record them." The suit says that Griffin and Bick “illegally captured hundreds of hours of audio and video from the Mezgers’ back yard” and that the Mezgers only learned about it in September 2017, months after the secret recordings began, when Griffin and Bick leaked one of the recordings to the media.
