LOS ANGELES - 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.
