Tyler Shields Defends Kathy Griffin Photo Of Beheaded Trump, Won't Censor Himself

Journalist Molly Ball scoffs at outrage over decapitated Trump

Journalist Molly Ball scoffs at outrage over decapitated Trump

Kathy Griffin was sacked from co-hosting New Year's Eve on CNN with Anderson Cooper this year, and even though they're longtime friends, Anderson is totally okay with seeing her go.

Shields' response was in stark contrast to Griffin. Kathy Griffin is not one of my favorite comedian's, but she has many fans that have found delight in her diatribes, and I support her artistic freedom, which is nothing less than courageous and constitutionally protected.

No apolgies here: The Canadian native said he thinks artists and creators 'are the last line of defense, ' and was sure to defend Griffin for her incendiary photos.

President Donald Trump spoke on Twitter to shout that image: " Kathy Griffin should be ashamed.

It's easy to blurt out something accidentally and blow a career.

"Clearly there is a history of the Hollywood left feeling emboldened to make outrageous statements about conservatives", former GOP strategist Alice Stewart observed.

Arsenal is coming off an FA Cup championship win over Chelsea , but a struggle of a season failed to meet the expectations of fans.

By firing her from the New Years gig CNN may have satisfied some subscribers, but when they ring in 2018 it will do what Cupp suggests, and bring to mind a gruesome event when a comedian was beheaded for representing a truth.

Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh likened the video to "the political assassination of Donald Trump". His statement did not cost him the election but it was an ignorant and ugly statement. Williams admitted he, "Said things that were not true", back in June 2015.

Comedian Will Durst took time off from working on "Durst Case Scenario", his one-man show about Trump, to comment on the Griffin controversy. "I went way too far".

I wonder if Griffin's recent stunt will help any of us in America? "It's impossible to get away from it". Often it only takes a spark to get a fire going.

Jennings' initial Barron tweet drummed up more than 14,000 replies, with many Twitter users bashing Jennings, who won more than $3 million over the course of 74 "Jeopardy!" games in 2004. While Griffin suspected there would be a firestorm from her picture, I don't think she ever imagined the severity of the burns.
