Los Angeles: Actor-comedian Kathy Griffin ruffled a lot of feathers when she called Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio a "man s**t", but she clarified that it was a joke.

While in the middle of her show on Carnival Cruise Line during her 80-city nationwide "Like a Boss" tour, the 55-year-old entertainer, who most recently encountered DiCaprio at the Directors Guild of America Awards, said: "Well, I may or may not have called Leonardo DiCaprio a 'man s**t', but I need everyone to know that it was totally said from a place of love."
She then laughed as she added: "Although it's true".
During her performance, Griffin also admitted that she once went naked to get paparazzi's attention before explaining how she confronted actor Sean Penn about his hair, reports people.com.
Before the show, she revealed it's better if there's no child watching her show because her material was not appropriate for children.
"I've done gay cruises before, but this one is different," she said.
"There are actual heterosexual people on this cruise. So I always tailor my material to fit the crowd. There are families here, but I hope no children come to my show. I'll escort them out myself, because my material is definitely not appropriate for children!" Griffin quipped.
