According to a tweet by CNN Communications, CNN has terminated their contract with Kathy Griffin for her annual New Years Eve Special, after she released a video of herself holding up a gorey mock-beheaded Trump mask.
Advertising boycotts led by the ‘new right’ orchestrated by figureheads like Mike Cernovich, Mark Dice and Alex Jones (just to name a few) were too big to ignore. It took CNN over a day to respond with the firing.
Many are seeing this as a monumental win for the right.
See below for video of Kathy Griffin’s apology after her video of what seemed to be an ISIS-inspired photoshoot:
Donald Trump tweeted in response.
Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!
