Self-styled comedian, anti-Trumper and all-around moron Kathy Griffin was officially canned from hosting CNN’s New Years Eve show early Wednesday afternoon, after the red-headed loudmouth took part in a photo shoot in which she held up a mock, bloodied severed head of President Donald Trump.

CNN’s communications team tweeted the following on Wednesday:


Griffin has hosted the annual program alongside CNN anchor  Anderson Cooper since 2007. Cooper vocally condemned Griffin's photo Tuesday, calling it "disgusting and completely inappropriate." 

Following a wave of backlash from both sides of the ideological aisle – including a host of left-wing pundits, media members, and even Chelsea Clinton – Griffin issued a videoed apology for her exceedingly poor taste.

For their part, the First Family seemed none-too-pleased with Griffin’s stunt, with President Trump tweeting that Griffin was “sick” and saying his 11-year-old son, Barron, was having a tough time dealing with the image.


First Lady Melania Trump put out a brief but strong statement condemning the photo and questioning Griffin’s mental health.
