CNN mainstays Anderson Cooper and Jake Tapper were among those who publicly condemned comedian Kathy Griffin’s anti-Trump art project on Tuesday. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the cable news network on Wednesday tweeted that Griffin would no longer host its New Year’s Eve coverage.
She’s co-hosted the special for CNN since 2007.
Griffin on Tuesday posted a video, recorded during a shoot with photographer Tyler Shields, in which she hoists President Donald Trump‘s bloody, decapitated head. She apologized for the project Tuesday evening via social media.
CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program.— CNN Communications (@CNNPR) May 31, 2017
For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.— Anderson Cooper (@andersoncooper) May 31, 2017
Griffin’s gesture has been seen by her critics as a peak example of Hollywood’s out-of-step worldview relative to the rest of the country. Right-wing blogs have led the outcry online. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) called the art project a “horrible mistake,” but as of this writing, the lawmaker is slated to appear with Griffin on July 7 at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Los Angeles.
