Breaking: CNN Gives Kathy Griffin The Axe Over Gruesome Publicity Stunt

FILE - This June 22, 2014 file photo shows host Kathy Griffin on stage at the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. The 53-year-old comedian said after watching the eye-popping, rump-shaking music video for Nicki Minaj’s new hit single, “Anaconda,” she wants to go toe-to-toe with the rap diva. “Of course, everyone’s talking about that ‘Anaconda’ video and it’s fantastic. It’s a lot of boo-tay and I would like to challenge Nicki to a boo-tay-off,” Griffin said in an interview this week. (Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP, File)

In the end, a tearful apology couldn’t save comedian Kathy Griffin’s perennial New Years’ Eve gig with CNN. The cable news giant announced it has canceled its agreement with Griffin on Wednesday after a gruesome image of her with a severed head made to look like President Trump was posted by the photographer, Tyler Shields.

Her co-host for the New Years’ Eve show, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, tweeted out his disgust for the image on Tuesday, as well.

At least we found the bridge too far when it comes to Trump hatred.
