Comedian and actress Kathy Griffin claimed CNN president Jeff Zucker slashed her pay after she had asked for a raise as co-host of the network’s New Year’s Eve special.
In a profile published Wednesday in The New York Times, Griffin recalled reaching out to Zucker 10 days before the broadcast in 2016 and told him she felt she deserved more than her $80,000 contract since “she was carrying more of the prep work” than her co-host, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper.
The article goes on to state the following:
“He started yelling at me and he literally said something like, ‘Who do you think you are calling here demanding a raise?’ And then something came over me. And I just lost it. I just started screaming. I’m Kathy [beep!] Griffin, Jeff, that’s who I am,” Griffin told the Times.
The report says Zucker then called Griffin’s lawyer and declared she was fired.
“Griffin called Zucker again, begging him to take her back. Zucker rehired her, but she said he cut her pay by 20 percent,” the New York Times wrote.
CNN later fired Griffin again in 2017 after she posed for a shocking photoshoot with a prop depicting then-President Trump’s bloody, decapitated head.
“I wasn’t canceled,” Griffin said, in her Malibu, Calif., home a few days after she “hate-watched” Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen on New Year’s Eve. “I was erased.” https://t.co/QsHjwbjEfU
