So Far, five shows on Griffin’s comedy tour have been dropped by the venues, 2 or 3 remain.
Gossip Cop Reports
Several shows on Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-In Tour have been canceled after the release of a photo depicting the comedienne holding up a fake decapitated head of President Donald Trump. Many venues around the country are now cutting ties with Griffin over the controversy.
As Gossip Cop reported, a photo of Griffin holding Trump’s head after a beheading went viral on Wednesday and the comedienne has received a ton of backlash over the shocking image. Trump himself responded to Griffin’s photo, saying she “should be ashamed of herself. The comedienne later released a video apologizing for the image and admitted she “went too far.”
Despite her apology, five shows on Griffin’s comedy tour have been scrapped by the venues slated to hold them, and it’s possible more cancellations will follow. The comedienne’s two scheduled shows in California on June 16 and October 13 have been axed, as has a planned July 22 show at Route 66 Casino in Albuquerque. The St. George Theater in Staten Island then removed Griffin’s November 2 show from its schedule, while the State Theatre in New Brunswick, NJ has canceled her scheduled performance on November 3.
The cancellation of Griffin’s comedy shows is just the latest blow to the comedienne’s career as a result of her scandalous Trump photo. Earlier this week, toilet company Squatty Potty dropped Griffin from its upcoming ad campaign. Shortly later, CNN announced its decision to fire Griffin from its annual New Year’s Eve show, which she had co-hosted for nearly a decade.
Bergen PAC in NJ — November 4 show — tells TMZ it’s been flooded by negative calls … but has not made a final decision yet on whether her show will go on.
