Far-left comedian/actress Kathy Griffin says she “meows like a cat” and “moos like a cow” during yoga to cope with her PTSD.
Griffin, whose career went downhill after she posted a photo of a replica severed head of Trump in 2017, was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder after a lung cancer diagnosis caused her to lose half of her left lung. ““I love talking about this stuff, which I know initially doesn’t sound hilarious,” Griffin said of her diagnosis in an interview with Vulture.
In order to deal with stress and PTSD, Griffin explained that she has been using what she calls “cat-cow,” where she makes animal noises during yoga. ““It’s when I get on all fours like a kitty cat and then I arch my back and I am instructed by my teacher to say the word meow. I feel like a fu**ing fool, but I do it,” she said.
“And then I un-arch my back and — wait for it — I ‘moo’ like a cow,” Griffin added. “PTSD is a b**ch, and when I get PTSD attacks, I can’t stop vomiting. So if I have to meow like a kitty cat and moo like a cow, I’m gonna fu**ing do it.”
Griffin also predicted that audiences will be able to relate to her struggles due to the “trauma” of the Trump era and the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This show is gonna be more personal because I’ve been through so much crazy stuff really in front of anybody who was paying attention. I actually do have PTSD, and I’m laughing because I thought that was only for combat veterans,” she said.
Griffin also cited a DOJ investigation into her conduct and Trump’s calls to have her charged over the stunt as contributing factors to her PTSD.
