In the wake of a poorly received piece of performance art featuring a severed Donald Trump head, comedian Kathy Griffin has lost her CNN job.
Griffin who regularly co-hosts CNN’s New Year’s Eve telecast with Anderson Cooper, has been given the boot by the cable channel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The report quotes a statement from CNN that says: “CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program.”
A subsequent statement from CNN reportedly adds: “We found what [Griffin] did disgusting and offensive. We are pleased to see she has apologized and asked that the photos be taken down.”
As we reported separately, Griffin posted a video clip on her Twitter account in which she emphatically apologizes for the Trump piece.
