Kathy Griffin my gotten herself back into the limelight with her mock-assassination of President Donald Trump, but it’s becoming quite clear that its probably not the kind of attention she was hoping for. The backlash for Griffin’s photo shoot with a severed, bloodied Trump head may be what puts the final nail in her career’s coffin.
Griffin has, in the past, co-hosted CNN’s annual New Year’s Eve telecasts, but in the wake of her tasteless attempt at dark comedy, the network has reportedly cut their ties to the comedienne. And things are just getting worse for Kathy Griffin as time goes on–companies are distancing themselves from her left and right.
For example, MGM Resorts International is the parent company of Griffin’s home venue, Mirage–and they recently issued an announcement which stated that there are no planned shows for the stand-up comedienne.
As reported, “Contrary to previous, inaccurate reporting, MGM Resorts has no future shows scheduled with Ms. Griffin at any of its venues. The incident in question clearly crosses the line of respect and decency and is not something we support or condone.”
Sources say that MGM has not yet revealed whether or not Griffin would be on the books for shows in the future, but that there are no listings for her on their website. And, to top it off, her profile page on the Mirage site seems to have disappeared.
Indeed, it seems Kathy Griffin’s career may very well be going the way of the dodo bird.
