Kathy Griffin Fired by CNN over Controversial President Trump Shoot

Published

 on

It has been a long 24 hours for comedian and TV host Kathy Griffin after she tweeted a graphic photo shoot of herself holding up a bloody head mask of President Donald Trump.

Kathy got backlash for the shoot and was condemned by several people online including Chelsea Clinton, Melania Trump and President Trump himself.

In a B.T.S clip from TMZ, Kathy Griffin said about the shot “I won’t give away what we’re doing, but Tyler and I are not afraid to do images that make noise. Also, he often lights me to the point where I look about 15. First I’m an artist, but really it’s good lighting.”

She has since apologized for the offensive tweet and shoot but still, CNN has dropped her as the official host for their annual New Year’s Eve show.

CNN tweeted:

    Very good. This is a line you don’t cross. No matter what. Can you imagine if that was made to look like Obama?? There would have been civil war!! Hypocrisy is allowing on one hand, what you will not allow on the other hand!!!

      No google obama hanged on a moose or tree. They did worse to him. Even that stupid Ted Nugent said he will kill him. Guess what? Trump invited him to White House.

      Obama was portrayed being lynched. However, this was very distasteful and unacceptable. This looks like what ISIS does, and that’s not what Freedom of speech should be about.
      So yes Kathy should be fired.

      Exactly… no known comedian would have dared to do that with Obama but there she is, proudly showing off her “art”. Not surprised though, Kathy Griffin has always been tasteless.

    I agree President Trump might not be ideal but he is the president. People needs to start showing him respect for the position which he holds. People voted for him, end of story. Democracy in action

      Respect is earned. No one owes him sh*t. Although this is obviously wrong what Kathy did

      Not side with Kathy. See my comment earlier. No one is obligated to show him respect cos he is a crass individual who plays dirty all the time (matter of time before we see what Russia has on him) however I think we are obligated to let him be. There is a glaring difference between letting someone be and respecting them. Trump with his divisive campaign theme has incited a culture of racism that sets the US back to the 1940s. He bullied his way into the white house and deserves no respect. He deserves to live tho hence I don’t condone Kathy’s extreme expression. Respect is not a right.

    This is definitely horrible and must be condemned, painfully they also planted this seed back then. Lets be careful what we do and say because it has a way of coming back. Comedy central is also a reference point. We will all reap what we sow

    People wishing others dead for winning elections or getting to a top position are the ones that when they get to a high level in their career will have a Queen called Karma come visiting.

    Insanity. Barbaric. Definitely the worst of unbridled freedom of speech. Outright desecration of the highest office of your country. Love or hate him, Trump was elected in line with your same laws which in any case guaranteed You the same freedom of speech which you enjoy. Respect.

    Trump is a father and grandfather with a family that takes him as he is and loves him regardless. He has an 11 year old child for God sake. What a horrible image for a child to see.
