Griffin, Kathy: CNN Fires Comedienne from New Year’s Program

CNN has fired Kathy Griffin from their annual New Year’s Eve program, which she cohosted with anchor Anderson Cooper.

The network made the announcement via Twitter Wednesday morning.

“CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” the CNN Public Relations account tweeted.

A spokesman for Griffin said she would have no comment beyond the apology video she posted on Tuesday.

The termination comes one day after the comedienne posted a photo and video of her holding a fake severed head of President Donald Trump.

She later apologized for the photo and video, saying it went too far, and removed it from her Twitter account. She had made it as part of a photo shoot with Tyler Shields, but they did not disclose what the project was.

Trump tweeted about the photo early on Wednesday, writing that Griffin “should be ashamed of herself.”
