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.
For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.
