Kathy Griffin comedy tour shows canceled over Donald Trump 'severed head' photo

Several shows on Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-In Tour have been canceled after she shared a photo of herself holding up a fake decapitated head of US President Donald Trump on Wednesday. Many venues around the country are now cutting ties with Griffin over the controversial photo.
Despite her apology, five shows on Griffin’s comedy tour have been cancelled by the venues slated to hold them, and it’s possible more cancellations will follow.
The comedienne’s two scheduled shows in California on June 16 and October 13 have also been canceled, as has a planned July 22 show at Route 66 Casino in Albuquerque. The St. George Theater in Staten Island then removed Griffin’s November 2 show from its schedule, while the State Theatre in New Brunswick, NJ has canceled her scheduled performance on November 3.

The cancelation of Griffin’s comedy shows is just the latest blow to the comedienne’s career as a result of her scandalous Trump photo. Earlier this week, toilet company Squatty Potty dropped Griffin from its upcoming ad campaign. Shortly later, CNN announced its decision to fire Griffin from its annual New Year’s Eve show, which she had co-hosted for nearly 10 years.

You are losing everything now,just because of your stupidity!

Linda I thought you were loling when Griffin did this shiii? How can you potrate such ISIS, Jihadis, Islamic Terrorist on any human? Because you hate Trump does not mean he does not have people who love him for who he is.

Imagine doing this to Obama, the Leftists and the media will carry your story for weeks. And the Gay Obama, the orator will come online and weep crocodile tears.

But the media were celebrating with Kathy until things turn against her. I hope the Islamic fighters, ISIS carry her head in a stale like that.

Peter James a black fool. Dont you EVER in your life insult Obama ever. U idiot low life, the stupid orange man first spread hatred, his America first to you. interprete it. Have you ever seen Obama disrespect even those who hated him. Remember you are black first and know that someone like trump cares less about you..... I am black. The stupid dirty piece of shit orange man who did nothing but marry prostitutite all his life is gay, indecent,proud, dirty, ugly name everything bad he should be called. Everyone detest except a Nigerian youth. Who would you rather mentor you. A trump or an Obama. Yes Katy griffin went to far. But the orange fool will surely be put in his place with time. Stupid black dirty people...like I say will it never be well with a black youth who curses Obama for trump...SLAVES rather apes. And may the Isis fighter carry your head and trumps

Gender inequality. When a MAN burnt down Obama's effigi no body questioned it. When snoop doggy dog shot a Donald trump look alike in his controversial new video. People hailed him. E don reach woman now. They want to crucify her. Security agents are investigating her, she has lost most of her deals and endousments. We are watching...

Nigerians that keep abusing their president PMB on social media due to freedom of speech, take note. Americans who practice freedom also have courtesy and reverence for their leader. Thanks you

It's not about who loves who. It's wrong to frame even your enemies in such disdain manner, howbeit your president. Nigerians must learn same. In life, it's very wrong to judge others. I don't like you and that's fine But 'live and let others live'.

See this stupid idiot. Does Obama know you ? Does he love your country? No was he directly involved in installing this old failure you call president? Yes. It will NEVER be well with anyone who supports a tenure that helped ruin Nigeria and has put many of our country men into untold hardships. "The stupid dirty piece of shit orange man who did nothing but marry prostitutite" Statements like this is what charlatans like you have learnt from obama and his criminal surrogate hilary. Do not EVER think you can come up here and spew shit because you have data you think you can come here and infect us with your unadultrated ignorance. To you its alright to hold a sitting presidents head or anyones head for that matter. I am angry because you think you know when it all when you know nothing. May it not be well with anyone who follows obamas hilary and the DNCs spread of hate. Blacks have cried over hate but now they are the disrespectful insane uncouth and dirty mouthed see all ur socalled celebs showing why large scale illiteracy is prevalent among blacks. And you are one of them!!!

A president is a president no matter what. You don't crack such jokes with the number one citizen of a country. Hope she learns her lesson. Comedy my foot.

Agbomen said...

See how one hopeless joke can almost ruin your entire life. Hope she has learnt her lessons and hopefully she comes back from this somehow.

Nora. Shut up and come kiss my ass. I see your well structured grammar on Linda's comment page. Mumu.

Internet News Freak said...

Yeah,I did say before that when I first saw that picture I told myself that this is the turning point of something and it has become the turning point of her.They should keep getting fashionable joining the new fashion team if Trump haters.I even saw where they termed the comments made by Trump's family disapproving her behaviour as "Griffin getting bullied by Trump's family"when she is the one that poured psychological acid on the president and his family. Report coming from Trump's end had it that it was traumatizing for his youngest son seeing his father's image decapitated like that. What is she apologising for, she knew the gravity of what she was doing and was jokingly telling her cohorts that they may have to run to Mexico and live when the picture is out for all to see.

@Anonymous 10:36: I said you are a fool, how did Obama ruin our country(did he say Jonathan should be a big FOOL #wasteful man)....I need to understand....I don't have to be decent with my words with you or the dick head Trump...If you ever lived in the west and worked where you as a black person your voice isn't heard you will understand that the idiot called Trump should be slapped(as he systematically created hate) he can't be respected ever again in the world believe me( oloshis like you will love him #low life).....I would understand if you have no value for yourself and your family....if you as a black man finds the only black president rule the free world and he did well, an idiot then , there is a place people like you can get to be in nigerian let alone the world....I AM BLACK and will never abuse Obama because of TRUMP. Where Obama will go to TRUMP i Repeat as it is in the world, WILL NEVER GET THERE(except of cause Saudi Arabia). Nuisance do you think it is Nigeria .....He would be disgraced believe me. A man that needs to be liked , a chauvinist, proud , childish , miserable just get educated and understand how a decent man speaks just may be you will change your thought and maybe a decently earned education. it is only people like you that will kiss Trump ass....we don't like him and believe me he would be thrown out and disgraced if he isn't he would run away after his presidency...Go get a decent job so you problem doesn't start with the quantity of data someone has....Black ape

The woman has been featured again by Yahoo and was shedding tears trying hard to garner public sympathy saying that she is receiving death threats and foolishly calling Trump a bully when she is the sickest bully in the history of the internet. Sickening woman that God blessed with a career and she forgot to be humble. Nobody deserves to be meted out to what she did whether it is a homeless man on the street or a president people love to hate. The fuck!
