CNN terminates agreement with Kathy Griffin over controversial Trump photo

A day after comedian Kathy Griffin released an offensive photo of herself holding a decapitated head of President Trump, CNN announced that they've terminated her contract and she will no longer come back as a co-host of their annual New Year's Eve program even though Griffin has apologized.


The comedian has co-hosted CNN's annual New Year's Eve program alongside Anderson Cooper since 2007. Not only was she fired, but has now also lost an endorsement deal with a company that makes ergonomic footstools. A planned stand-up appearance on July 22 was also cancelled.

One mistake with life threatening consequences. Where are those that hailed her on LIB? Whatsoever ideology we hold whether political, racial or patterns, we should desist from things that misrepresent our future and people that look up to us as role models. God help our world in Jesus name. Amen

Low life scum. Some humans will claim to act mature until they can't get what they want then you realize you've all along been dealing with toddlers. Good riddance

Hmmmm, Nigerians are hypocrites! Isn't it amazing how the same people who do and say worse things to our own PMB castigate Kitty Graffin? Internet don suffer, how people will just sit behind their Chinko phones and type out their frustrations. SMH.... Have your own mind at least! Hehehe

Indeed, this was a joke carried too far. I expected her to know better and for her to hate Trump policy and act and not his person. Pity her anyway.

Very careless, very unprofessional and extreme. It's quite unfortunate and I hope others would learn from this. He might not be the people's favourite but he's still the President.
The same people she intended would laugh on seeing this pic would now tag her as being careless and silly. Who turned out to be the joke?

What she did is definitely not good so also in any country like GEJ's tenure. Buh it's no longer about what she did buh they trying to do the right tin when it comes to a fellow white man. There were cases and worse cases of Obama where cartoons and other acts pple used to show their hate towards him buh nobody made a fuss abt it. Nobody was fired or arrested. So now it's a white president dey decide to acknowledge it's wrong. God punish them all, racist fools, period

Foolish people that allowed others dictate rights and wrongs for them. Am sure most Trump haters are doing so out of societal pressure and necessarily what they want.

Say what you know. Who told you nobody was fired for insulting Obama? A lot of them lost their jobs for insulting Obama and making racist comments about his family. And nobody made a joke about beheading Obama, this is too extreme.
