Kathy Griffin's Gory Trump Photoshoot Cost Her A Network Job

Griffin has co-hosted New Year's Eve Live with Anderson Cooper on CNN for 10 years. Griffin has lost a decade-long gig ringing in the new year for CNN, according to the Associated Press.

News anchor Cooper took to Twitter to voice his opinion on the debacle, saying he is "appalled" and the photo is "clearly disgusting".

The shocking photo of Kathy Griffin holding a stoney replica of Donald Trump's head covered in blood, caused controversy on both sides of the political spectrum after it was posted on Tuesday. "I went too far", she said in the post on Tuesday. "I understand how it offends people, it wasn't amusing, I get it".

"I'm a comic", she said.

But the response did more to unite liberals and conservatives in their condemnation of the sketch, which many said crossed a line - even Chelsea Clinton told her it was the wrong move. "I am sorry. I went too far". The image is too disturbing. "It wasn't amusing. I get it", she said in the video message.

Griffin released the Trump photo on Tuesday and the severe backlash was nearly immediate.

Speaking of sons, Donald Jr. also responded to Griffin's picture, slamming her for the "phony" apology she released shortly after her post became viral. We are evaluating New Year's Eve and have made no decisions at this point.

"As a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing", Flotus said in an official statement while reacting to the comedienne's fake decapitation stunt. I've made a lot of mistakes in my career, I will continue to.

TMZ, which first reported on the Griffin images, claims Barron Trump saw the photos on television and thought something had happened to his father. "I was wrong", she said. "She not only asked for forgiveness but begged for forgiveness, and I believe in forgiveness".
