LOS ANGELES May 31 CNN said on Wednesday it has
terminated comedian Kathy Griffin's deal to appear on the
network's annual New Year's Eve broadcast in the wake of
controversy over her posing in photographs with a likeness of
President Donald Trump's head.
The decision was announced by CNN in a Twitter post from the
network's public relations department hours after Trump said in
his own tweet that Griffin "should be ashamed of herself" for
the photos showing her with a replica of a severed, bloodied
head resembling his.
