Kathy Griffin Fired From CNN's New Year's Eve Show

Kathy Griffin will no longer head up CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage.

The network just announced on social media that the 56-year-old comedian has been fired following her controversial photo shoot in which she held the fake decapitated head of President Donald Trump.

Kathy came under fire for the Tyler Shields shoot and was condemned by everyone from Chelsea Clinton to Trump himself, who said she “should be ashamed of herself.”

Even her friend and CNN co-host Anderson Cooper said he was “appalled” by it.

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

    Look, obviously what Kathy Griffin did was wrong. But I just find it ironic that Donald Trump continues to get away with everything, but people like Kathy Griffin and Billy Bush get punished for (arguably) less offensive acts.

    hahah what?she did was wrong and should got fired for it.Showing a head of the president is far worse then what billy bush did!

    I never said she shouldn’t have gotten fired, or that what she did wasn’t worse than what Billy Bush did. I was simply making a statement about the fact that Donald Trump never has to face consequences for his actions, but people like Kathy Griffin and Billy Bush do. I just find it interesting. #ReadingComprehension

    Really? Ted Nugent threatened to KILL both Pres. Obama and Hillary Clinton and he NEVER apologized … in fact doubled-down … and Pres. Trump invited him over to the WH for dinner. When people showed Pres. Obama being lynched Rethuglicans said it was “free speech”. Remember it is only a problem if a liberal does it.

    Actually Nugget was criticize for it a lot by the media.I think he should have apologized for it .He got investigated by the Government for the threat.I understand he was at the WH but that was trump choice even thought I do not agree with it.

    Exactly. Now if they were quoting Scripture they’d been give more license. She was offensive and apologized for her poor choice…..CNN didn’t need to charge in on its white horse and blow her away.

    For all the so called liberal media bias in the press, I find they give the Rats a much wider berth. Over compensation, perhaps?
