CNN Parts Ways With Kathy Griffin Over Trump ‘Beheading’

May 31, 2017  •  Post A Comment

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.


  1. The question you have to ask whenever you see these types of apologies is whether the apology is the result of true repentance because of the action or an attempt to minimize the damage because of the unforeseen reaction.

  2. It official: New Years Eve is boring again.
