Griffin came under fire for posing for a gruesome photo showing her holding the severed head of President Donald Trump.
It enraged the public, none other than Trump himself; terrified his son and even infuriated the Satanists. The Secret Service also decided to may Ms. Griffin a visit.
At first, CNN reacted by calling the photo “disgusting and offensive,” saying they were “evaluating our New Year’s Eve coverage.”

But only after the global firestorm did CNN announce they were completely cutting ties with Griffin, namely her appearance on their New Year’s Eve program.
CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program.

Griffin’s co-host for the annual snore-fest, Anderson Cooper tweeted his disgust Tuesday night.
For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.

Before the firestorm, Griffin defended the photo.
“I caption this ‘there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his … wherever,’” she wrote Tuesday.
In a second tweet, she added: “OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever! I’m merely mocking the Mocker in Chief.”
Now, it seems, she’s just another single, 50-something has-been celebrity looking for a date on New Year’s Eve.
