CNN is responding to comedian Kathy Griffin’s latest controversy after she did a photo shoot with a fake severed head of President Trump.

Before the controversy, Griffin spent part of her time as a co-host for their New Year’s Eve coverage.

CNN provided a statement to Mediaite expressing their thoughts about her actions and what they meant moving forward: “We found what she did disgusting and offensive. We are pleased to see she has apologized and asked that the photos be taken down. We are evaluating New Year’s Eve and have made no decisions at this point.”
