Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Decision About Kathy Griffin’s Annual New Year’s Eve Gig Stumps CNN After Apology

It didn’t take long for Kathy Griffin to apologize after taking photos of herself holding a replica of President Trump’s severed head on Tuesday.

“I sincerely apologize,” Griffin said, after “just now” seeing the strong reaction to the image. “I’m a comic. I cross the line. I move the line and then I cross it. I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny, I get it. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my career. I’ve asked your forgiveness, taking down the image. I’m going to ask the photographer to take down the image. And I beg for your forgiveness. I went too far. I made a mistake and I was wrong.”

Fox News’ Dana Perino called it “contrived” on The Five, and it probably was considering that Griffin joked during the original video about having to move to Mexico once the video gets out.

The comedian had plenty of detractors on all sides of the spectrum on this one, which even included Chelsea Clinton, who condemned her via Twitter calling Griffin’s stunt “vile and wrong.”

CNN released a statement evaluating its New Years Eve coverage. Griffin has been the chosen star of the yearly ball drop on the network for the past few years.

“We found what she did disgusting and offensive,” a CNN spokesperson said. “We are pleased to see she has apologized and asked that the photos be taken down. We are evaluating our New Year’s Eve coverage and have made no decisions at this point.”

Anderson Cooper, her co-host for he event, made a public denouncement on Tuesday.
