CNN has severed its relationship with Kathy Griffin after the comedian sparked an uproar for photos depicting her holding a mock severed head of President Trump.

CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” the network said in a statement Wednesday afternoon.

CNN released an earlier statement saying Ms. Griffin’s newest anti-Trump stunt, which she has since apologized for, was “disgusting and offensive.”



Ms. Griffin has co-hosted CNN’s New Year’s Eve special with Anderson Cooper since 2007.
