Kathy Griffin Fired From CNN's New Year's Eve Hosting Gig

Comedian Kathy Griffin isn't laughing now, after receiving an OVER WHELMING amount of negative backlash stemming from a photo shoot she did with controversial images featuring President Trump , CNN just announced that she is fired from her New Years Eve hosting duties with Anderson Cooper, live from Times Square...

The president's son, Donald Trump Jr, called the imagery "disgusting but not surprising."

Chelsea Clinton said the photo was "vile and wrong.  It is never funny to joke about killing a president," she wrote on Twitter.

The network said in a statement Wednesday, “CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program.” Griffin has co-hosted CNN’s “New Year’s Eve Live” broadcast with Anderson Cooper since 2007.
