Update: CNN fires Griffin
Kathy Griffin continued to drown in backlash over a gruesome photo shoot that has enraged President Donald Trump, drawn bipartisan criticism, and could endanger her relationship with CNN, for whom she co-hosts an annual New Year’s Eve show.
The comedian and reality TV star apologized Tuesday night for a shocking picture in which she was seen holding a prop of Trump’s bloody, severed head.
In a video posted on social media, Griffin said she crossed the line and that the image was too disturbing.
“I sincerely apologize. I am just now seeing the reaction of these images,” she said of the picture.
The president was not impressed, tweeting Wednesday morning to attack Griffin over the widely denounced image, which Trump called “sick!”
“Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!” Full story.
