Comedian sacked by CNN after Trump severed head photo

Kathy Griffin Fired for Decapitated Trump Head Stunt

The photo was released on Tuesday by Shields.

In what is probably not going to be a good year for Kathy Griffin, it was announced today that the comedian has been fired from her job at CNN. Her appearances have triggered controversy almost ever year because of her raunchy jokes and antics. In response to the photo, the agency tweeted: "On it!"

The move comes after Griffin created an uproar by sharing a photo through social media this week that showed her holding up a bloodied prop head of President Donald Trump.

"I'm merely mocking the Mocker in Chief", she said in a Tweet of defense. "I cross the line". I am a comic. It's obvious that CNN isn't a fan of President Trump as full-fledged cheerleaders of The Resistance, but it's fair to say that this goes too far.

"This image is disturbing", she said. "It wasn't amusing. I get it.I sincerely apologize".

She said she was taking down the image and would ask the photographer, Tyler Shields, to take it down as well.

"I ask your forgiveness".

Nigeria constitutes part of the global community with 1.5 billion people affected in conflicts, violence and fragility. Of this figure, over 168 million people who are engaged in child labour live in areas affected by strife.

On Wednesday afternoon, the casino, through its official Twitter page, tweeted, "The July 22nd performance by Kathy Griffin has been cancelled".

The first lady hit back even harder at the controversial comedian.

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Hillary Clinton, who won the most votes in the 2016 election, called the photo "vile and wrong".

"It is never amusing to joke about killing a president".

On Tuesday night, a CNN spokesperson called the photos "disgusting and offensive".

Griffin has lost at least one endorsement deal. Squatty Potty released a statement earlier Wednesday stating that they would not be using a new ad campaign in which she was featured.

However, after facing a lot of backlash Griffin took to Twitter once again with an emotional apology and plea for the public's forgiveness. "We're not surviving this, OK?"
