Free Market Rules: Kathy Griffin Loses All Of Her Shows, Sponsors, & CNN Job After Trump-Beheading Stunt

D-list comedienne Kathy Griffin is done.

Following her recent photo and video shoot involving a severed and bloodied head of President Donald Trump, Griffin took a lot of heat from both left and right. And while we fully support Griffin’s right to free speech, however gruesome, hateful or misdirected, the consequences for her artistic expression continue to play out in epic form.

Though she tried to side-step and place blame for the national blowback squarely on the shoulders of Donald Trump, the American public was having none of it.

Now, just one week after her “art” went viral across the internet to the outrage of millions of people, we learn that Griffin, who was already struggling to fill comedy shows and obtain sponsors, has been shunned by everyone she is financially involved with:

So, that’s everyone. CNN (after waiting nearly a day) decided to can Griffin from her annual New Year’s Eve appearance (where she flips people the bird and makes Anderson Cooper giggle like a school girl). And every single one of her upcoming gigs for her comedy show has been canceled. Every. Single. One.


“Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins Tour” (hilarious!) had planned seven stops, a few in California, a few more around New York City, and one in New Mexico.


So, Griffin’s metamorphosis is complete. She went from a D-list comedian with one sponsor who hardly ever works (seven shows between now and December is not exactly a packed schedule) to a former comedian with no sponsors and zero upcoming shows.

Via The Daily Wire

As Top Right News so succinctly sums up:

Brutal. But well deserved. Kathy has no one to blame but herself.


That’s the free market at work. 


We should never take pleasure in seeing someone lose their job but companies have a right to determine whether or not they want to stand behind disgraceful behavior like that.

We have no doubt that Griffin will continue to blame the President, the racist alternative media, those pesky Deplorables, and especially 11-year old Barron Trump for her financial woes.

Trump is such a bully

Don't worry, her butt-ugly face will get her on a bottle of drain cleaner.

But what to call this new brand?

Kathy will NEVER give up her right to Free Speech. Problem is, no one is trying to stop her. Carry on, Libtard Universe.

I think she should take The Donald severed head, pull herself together, and take her "act" on the road.  I predict a full house and roars of approving laughter at every ANTIFA rally.  It's a great act, Kathy, and you're just waiting for the world to catch on and catch up.

She was awarded a well-deserved move from the ‘D List” to the “F List”.

Her only recourse is suicide. A soulless ginger psycho, no one will give a shit.

She went from the D-list to the Z-list, or is that the "dead to me list"?

Tyler Shields had this to say in response after the uproar over the photo "For me, I love the idea we have freedom of speech. The fact that I’m allowed to make an image like this says a lot. To me, that’s a powerful thing… nobody’s killed me for this image so it’s not that bad."


Ok tough guy artist, now do an art piece depicting Muhammad.  I fucking dare you - you piece of shit.  See how the "religion of peace" responds to that.

Too bad the same hasn't happened to Michael Moore, Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert, Rachael Madcow and the entire staff of CNN... They should all be forced to eat their own eat for a month too...

Finally, someone expressed what I was thinking. No matter how vile someone's actions, I always start feeling sorry for them when people single them out and pile on, exempting the many other culprits from any critique. A whole environment exists to reward this sort of disgusting expression, and then, suddenly, there is a shift in thinking and a fall guy.

It is good if people are really changing their ways, but you should have seen the awful stuff so-called "artists" on Twitter wrote about the 10 year old. Kids have to go to school. How would these cowardly, anonymous trolls like it if they were the ones who could not remain anonymous, while people under the cloak of anonymity said any mean-to-the-core thing they could think of, just because they disagree with the father's political positions.

People are awful, not just a kathy. Lots of them are horrible, even in public forums, like the internet. They are mean as snakes in schools and workplaces as well. We have a ton of bullies of all ages in this society. That is why such imagery has become the norm, although maybe this is helping to set a higher standard for decency, Maybe, she has inadvertently helped in that way.

I don't wish bad on anybody, but there are some obituaries I can't wait to read.

Occident Mortal's picture

This was an extremely dumb thing to do and is evidence of a very narrow and blinkered worldview.

She upset both sides of the political spectrum, she upset the right by endorsing extreme violence against the POTUS and she upset the left by juxtaposing their ideology with the actions of Al Qaeda and ISIS.


This was monumentally ill advised, these people clearly need to be supervised at all times.

The fear of that is the left would view her as a martyr. 

vato poco's picture

well, suicide seems kinda harsh merely for being a strident unfunny slunt. perhaps she can go back to her old gig, sucking cocks in an alley behind a bar. near a halfway house, maybe - surely those guys won't be put off by her looks

Got The Wrong No's picture

The media will blame Trump and make her a martyr. Hillary is working on Griffin's nail gun accident as we speak.

I'd surmise the F stands for Fuckwit

She's in the AAA tranche of her list now, at least.

Ignatius's picture

You got it, she just needs to re-target her audience and key demographic.

I heard a while ago that Saudi Arabia was hiring executioners. They can't behead people fast enough.


But I suppose that would be men only. That danged glass ceiling AGAIN.

Endgame Napoleon's picture

I don't know. I find it hard to laugh at beheading jokes. I think that is part of the over-the-top nature of this awful prank. We have seen one news report after another about heinous, real beheadings. Of course, it was awful for Trump's family to see the gruesome image. What about the families or friends of the journalists who were beheaded in the last couple of years or the row of Coptic Christians who were beheaded, ughh. There was even an incident at a warehouse.

They are hooded, so if you do your job, maybe a mean lady has a chance.

Trump should hire that fruitcake as press secretary to be tag team partner w/Spicer.

The White House press corps certainly deserves her.

wee-weed up's picture



Maybe she & Colin Kaepernick should get together...

Two of the world's biggest losers who have only themselves to blame.

She fail to realize those anti Trump protestors are paid protestors, thus no real audience wants what she is showing.

Even Squatty Potty dumped the bitch: Kathy Griffin dumped by Squatty Potty


“We were shocked and disappointed to learn about the image Ms. Griffin shared today, it was deeply inappropriate and runs contrary to the core values our company stands for,” wrote CEO Bobby Edwards in a statement sent to Fox News. “In response, Squatty Potty has suspended its ad campaign featuring Ms. Griffin. We have acted swiftly and decisively to demonstrate our commitment to a culture of decency, civility, and tolerance.”

Disgusting but not surprising. This is the left today. They consider this acceptable. Imagine a conservative did this to Obama as POTUS?

Good thing she has a secondary carrier to fall back on...

My response: Let JUSTICE BE SERVED!!!! AMEN!!!

All that is left is to LOCK UP THIS WOMAN FOR LIFE. The orange jump suit should go well with the RED HAIR!!!!

As a side note, this was NOT an ACT of FREE SPEECH!!!! It was an act of DOMESTIC TERRORISM with INTENT TO DO HARM or ENCOURAGE OTHERS to DO HARM!!! This is a FELONY!!!!! The text below applies to mankind generally and to Kathy Griffin specifically.
