Kathy Griffin Says Friendship with Anderson Cooper is Over
by Aurelie Corinthios
August 28, 2017



It’s been nearly three months since a photograph of Kathy Griffin posing with a replica of President Donald Trump‘s bloodied, decapitated head in her hand sparked nationwide outrage — and changed her life forever.

In an in-depth interview with New York magazine’s The Cut, the comedian — who, in the wake of the scandal, was fired from the CNN New Year’s Eve broadcast that she had co-hosted with Anderson Cooper for 10 years — discussed the controversial photo at length, revealing that it was the catalyst that ultimately ended her nearly two decade-long friendship with Cooper.





When the photo surfaced on May 30, the CNN anchor took to Twitter to condemn it: “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in,” he wrote. “It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.

According to Griffin, in the following days, four of Cooper’s CNN colleagues reached out repeatedly to check on her and offer private support. Cooper, however, didn’t contact Griffin until Aug. 10, The Cut confirmed with CNN.





Griffin, 56, told the magazine that the fact that Cooper was publicly claiming they were friends while not checking in with her hurt deeply. When he finally reached out to her in a series of text messages, she told him their friendship was over.

A source close to Cooper, 50, told the magazine that Cooper was “shocked and upset by the photo, and while he was not ready to talk to her personally about it, he still considered her to be a friend, and was publicly supportive when asked about the controversy.





According to Griffin, other celebrities were more solicitous in the aftermath, such as Jerry Seinfeld and Jamie Foxx, who both spoke publicly in support of the comedian. According to Griffin, Amy Schumer personally sent her a funny video and former "Today" show host Billy Bush — who was notoriously caught up in his own Trump-related scandal — reportedly suggested in a note that Griffin stay quiet for a while and take up meditation.

Despite the far-reaching consequences of the photo, Griffin told The Cut she’s tired of apologizing for it.



Why are people still expecting me to apologize and grovel to a man that tweets like this?” she said. “I’m a comedian; he’s our f—ing president.

President Trump just pardoned Joe Arpaio, who was essentially running a concentration camp in the Arizona desert,” she later added. “He said there are some good Nazis, and he’s kicking out young adults who were brought here as kids by their parents, and I’m the one who has to continue to apologize?

Kathy Griffin Yanks Apology For “Decapitated” Donald Trump Stunt While Promoting Overseas Tour
by Lisa de Moraes
August 29, 2017



Three months after apologizing for a photo shoot in which she held up a fake “decapitated” head of President Donald Trump, Kathy Griffin said she wants to take that back.

“I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was B.S.,” she complained in an interview with Seven Network in Australia, where she is on tour. “The whole thing got so blown out of proportion. I lost everybody – I had Chelsea Clinton tweeting against me!




Speaking to the co-host of the net’s program Sunrise, Griffin reminded that even friends like Debra Messing criticized the stunt, adding that, in addition to being fired from CNN’s annual New Year’s Eve special, her U.S. tour got scrubbed when venues got death threats.

These Trump fans are hardcore,” she warned.




When Sunrise host Samantha Armytage mentioned that Clinton and Messing are not Trump fans, asking Griffin if she understood they thought the message was “over the line,” Griffin shot back: “You’re full of crap. Stop acting like my little picture is more important than talking about the actual atrocities that the president of the United States is committing.

I’ve been talking to Australians who, for the first time, are saying ‘We’re afraid to go to America,’” Griffin said. “I never thought I would hear that in my lifetime.

No, it's all about her getting attention. She hasn't been in the headlines for awhile and that's why she said this.

Because both of them happen to be gay, that's why.
