CNN fires Kathy Griffin over decapitation video

Recommended Posts

Kathy Griffin will not be back as co-host of CNN's annual New Year's Eve program, the network announced Wednesday.

CNN's decision comes one day after photos were released of Griffin that showed the comedian holding up a bloody head resembling that of President Donald Trump. 

"CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program," the network said in a statement. 

Griffin has apologized for the photos, taken by provocative celebrity photographer Tyler Shields. She asked for them to be removed in a apologetic video statement she posted to Instagram late Tuesday. 

"I beg for your forgiveness. I went too far," she said in the video. "I made a mistake and I was wrong." 

Griffin has co-hosted CNN's annual New Year's Eve program alongside Anderson Cooper since 2007. 

On Tuesday night, a CNN spokesperson called the photos "disgusting and offensive."

If there's one good thing out of this election, it seems like political correctness and common sense is having a comeback.

True, but in what way does that matter when it comes to who CNN decides to employ?
