What is wrong with the women at CNN? One CNN woman goes without pant, another one snaps photo while holding a bloody mask depicting President Donald Trump’s decapitated head.
Kathy Griffin whose real name is Kathleen Mary Griffin has sincerely apologized on Twitter for her action but it seems either her apology came too late or people are just not buying it. CNN has fired Griffin by terminating her contract immediately as soon as the controversy escalated.
In her apology, she said she is a comic and added that ‘I moved the line, then crossed it. I went way too far.”…I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my career” … “I ask for your forgiveness.” She concluded by saying “I made a mistake and I was wrong.”

As a result of the above mentioned incident, ad campaign or commercials in which Griffin starred have been suspended by Squatty Potty.
According to CEO Bobby Edwards of the Utah toilet company, they have suspended their ad campaign in which Griffin starred. In his own words:
“We have acted swiftly and decisively to demonstrate our commitment to a culture of decency, civility, and tolerance.”
Anderson Cooper who is NYE co-host to Graffin also issued a statement on Twitter condemning Graffin’s action. “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.” Cooper said on Twitter.
President Trump also responded to the incident on Twitter saying “Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!”
