Comedian Kathy Griffin has reportedly been fired by CNN following the controversial, gory photo of her holding a blood-stained, beheaded President Trump.
The photo has caused widespread outrage from both Trump supporters and critics for the unprofessional display.
“CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” the network’s communications team announced Wednesday in a tweet.
Griffin will now not be hosting the 2017 New Year’s Eve special with Anderson Cooper, which she has done alongside Cooper since 2007.
