Kathy Griffin horrified America when she was photographed holding a bloody head that was a mock of Donald Trump.
She thought since she was a left-wing comic she could get away with anything.
The reaction was swift and it led to Griffin getting the worst news of her life.
Griffin was employed by CNN to co-host their New Years Eve program.
As soon as the gruesome photo of her holding a bloody Trump head, Americans – including Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. – called for CNN to fire her for staging an ISIS-like photo op simulating killing Trump.
Dear @CNN, I must have missed your statement banning your commentator #KathyGriffin from future shows. Please resend. Thx
CNN – which initially hoped the scandal would blow over and said they were merely evaluating the situation – was forced to fire Griffin.
“CNN has cut ties with comedian Kathy Griffin, who for several years has been co-host of the network’s New Year’s Eve celebration, over a video she posted in which she holds up a fake-blood-covered prop designed to look like President Donald Trump’s severed head.
“CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” the network’s communications team posted on its Twitter account Wednesday afternoon.
In an earlier statement, CNN called the image of Griffin holding up the fake head “disgusting and offensive” but said it was “pleased” that she had apologized. Still, the network said at the time it was “evaluating New Year’s Eve.”
Griffin’s New Year’s Eve co-host, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, said he was “appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.”
Liberals have long used corporate boycotts and pressure campaigns against advertisers to silence conservative media personalities.
After Bill O’Reilly was driven off Fox News and George Soros-backed groups tried to get Sean Hannity kicked off the air, conservatives decided enough was enough and began to fight back.
The outrage directed at CNN was an outgrowth of conservatives fighting fire with fire.
Griffin deserved to be fired on the merits.
She was photographed in an ISIS victory pose holding a bloody and severed head of the President.
Her thoughtless stunt traumatized his young son.
Liberals celebrities will have to reckon with the fact their political beliefs do not provide safe harbor from outrageous conduct that would have forced conservatives into exile should the shoe have been on the other foot.
