CNN has fired Kathy Griffin after she was pictured holding a likeness of President Donald Trump’s severed head.
Ms Griffin has been dismissed from her annual gig co-hosting the television network’s New Year’s Eve program with network anchor Anderson Cooper, the network announced.
CNN’s PR department tweeted:
“CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,”
The gruesome photos were taken in a shoot with celebrity photographer Tyler Shields, who is known for work depicting violence.
