Kathy Griffin Fired From New Year’s Eve Special After Trump Photo
As we reported last night, comedian Kathy Griffin came under fire after a photo of her posting a mask of President Donald Trump covered in blood surfaced. While Griffin apologized last night, it seems there are going to be repercussions for the photo.
According to a breaking report, CNN has gone ahead and fired Griffin from her New Year’s Eve Special she’s hosted with Anderson Cooper since 2007.
“CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” the network said in a statement they issued via Twitter.
Cooper had taken to Twitter last night to write that, “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.”
It was also revealed earlier today that Griffin, who had a deal with Squatty Potty, was dropped by the company after the photo surfaced.
