A vulgar rant about Kathy Griffin, too hard to adequately put in words, ended up whacking KB Home CEO Jeffrey Mezger’s annual bonus by 25 percent, CBS News said.

The builder of upscale homes launched into a tirade of profanities against the comedian and a man with her, Randy Bick, after they reportedly lodged a noise disturbance complaint against him on Saturday.

The rant was caught on security camera audio and shared with The Huffington Post.

Griffin and Bick live in a gated community next to Mezger and his wife Sandra. The neighbors reportedly have locked horns before over noise.

Griffin and Bick reportedly have placed several noise complaints with the Los Angeles police since moving into their home a year ago, HuffPost said, and Saturday reportedly wasn’t the first time Mezger reacted like that.

A KB Home spokesperson responded, explaining that 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.”

KB Home’s board of directors said on Thursday that “Mezger’s recent behavior in his personal dealings with a neighbor is unacceptable and a negative reflection on KB Home.”

The board announced it would be slashing his bonus and, should a similar incident arise again, he would be dismissed.

The Associated Press reported that Mezger’s last bonus was back in 2014 and was $125,000. The AP said he was paid $9 million in salary and stock awards last year.
