The CEO of one of the largest homebuilding companies in the country has allegedly targeted liberal comedian Kathy Griffin by labeling her a series of profanities.
CEO and chairman of KB Home Jeffrey Mezger accused the comedian of being a “bald d*ke” and a “c*nt” after her boyfriend, Randy Bick, called the LAPD to say his grandchildren were being too loud and raucous.
The Huffington Post acquired audio from security camera footage of the incident, in which Mezger can be heard screaming and telling Griffin she’s a “f*cking bald d*ke” whom President Donald Trump “kind of put the heat on.”
During the confrontation, Mezger explicitly told Griffin, “Let’s declare war, a*shole, ’cause we got a lot to go for. Let’s bring it on, you b*tch, f*cking c*nt.”
Griffin, 56, shaved off her red locks in July in support of her sister, Joyce, who was battling cancer. She passed away Thursday in a hospital.
A KB Home spokesperson released the following statement after the incident:
“Mr. Mezger regrets losing his temper over a supposed noise complaint involving his three young grandchildren in his swimming pool around 8 p.m. on Saturday, while they were being supervised by their mother and grandmother. He apologizes for the language he used, as it does not reflect who he is or what he believes.”
Mezger has been the front man of the publicly-traded company since 2006 and has worked there since 1993, according to his official biography. Mezger lives with his wife, Sandra, in a gated community next to Griffin and Bick, who only moved into their home a year ago. Logs obtained from the homeowner’s association show that they filed noise complaints against Griffin and Bick immediately.
Mezger reportedly told the association that he and his wife don’t host parties often and that their new neighbors “need to adapt.”
According to the HuffPost, an LAPD spokesperson is treating the incident as a civil matter and it would “take a while” to find any record of the call. However, audio captured on Saturday and obtained by the paper showcases the altercation.
Mezger’s rant can be heard in the audio: “Hey Randy, go f**k yourself. Seriously? You call on my grandkids at 9 o’clock? You’re not even the f*****g owner. You’re stuck with a f*****g bald d**e who Donald Trump kind of put the heat on. Now you’re calling the cops? F**k you and f**k Kathy. You’re not our f*****g neighbor, you’re a f*****g asshole. Let’s declare war, a*****e, ’cause we got a lot to go for. Let’s bring it on, you b***h.”
Griffin then inquired, seemingly in a confused manner: “Randy, what’s happening? [cross talk] Randy, what’s happening?”
Mezger concludes in his rant: “If you’re asking Randy what’s happening, he called the cops on my 5-year-old granddaughter, you f****g c**t. B*****t ― 9 o’clock at night ― oh, this party’s loud, this party’s really happening. F**k you. I’ve done enough trying to be a nice partner ― f**k you, neighbor. War’s happening. Don’t wait until we’re gonna bring some things on you. Now f**k you.”
