Controversial comedian Kathy Griffin took to Twitter Friday to announce that the federal investigation launched into her severed head stunt has ended.
The New York Times reported that Griffin’s lawyer confirmed she was being investigated for the prank by the secret service in early June.
Griffin has had an interesting few months following the ill-advised stunt, in which she posted a photo online of a bloody, severed representation of President Trump’s decapitated head. CNN parted ways with the comedian for her actions, and most venues canceled her appearances. Al Franken declined to follow through with a book signing event he had scheduled with Griffin prior to the prank. Griffin had been set to co-host CNN’s New Year’s Eve show with Anderson Cooper.
Griffin admitted the stunt was one of the more regrettable things she’d done in her life.
“I don’t think I’m going to have a career after this. I’m going to be honest, he broke me,” Griffin said, according to TIME. “A sitting president of the United States and his grown children, and the First Lady, personally, I feel, are trying to ruin my life forever.”
Trump said publicly that Griffin should be “ashamed” of her actions. 11-year-old Barron Trump was reportedly disturbed by the photo, which Rosie O’Donnell took as an opportunity to criticize the President’s parenting.
Nonetheless, the backlash against Griffin is in part deserved, as the comedian continues to blame Trump for the consequences of one of her own decisions. She has recently made feeble attempts at reestablishing herself as relevant but her words no longer hold weight, as if they ever did.
