Kathy Griffin Swears on CNN’s New Year’s Show for Second Year in a Row, and She Doesn’t Really Give a #$@!% That She Did

Jan 4, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Comedian Kathy Griffin uttered a profanity on CNN’s live New Year’s show for the second year in a row, the Associated Press reports.

Griffin was joking with co-host Anderson Cooper about the pronunciation of the first name of "balloon boy" Falcon Heene when she made the comment.

CNN said in a statement that it regretted the profanity, but Griffin, in a statement, dismissed it, noting that, "Like every other serious reporter covering the now infamous balloon boy hoax, I struggled to pronounce his name ‘Falcon’ correctly and have gotten a kick out of how many ways I’ve heard it pronounced by other serious reporters. Just add me to that list and happy new year!"
