CNN has fired comedian Kathy Griffin following a graphic photo shoot of herself holding up a bloody head mask of President Donald Trump, in a twitter post.
“CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” the network said in a statement.
Griffin has apologized for the photos, taken by provocative celebrity photographer Tyler Shields.
“I beg for your forgiveness. I went too far,” she said in a video posted to Instagram late Tuesday. “I made a mistake and I was wrong.”
Griffin has co-hosted CNN’s annual New Year’s Eve program alongside Anderson Cooper since 2007.
