Earlier this year, US comedian, Kathy Griffin, faced huge backlash after she shared a photo of her holding a fake severed and bloody head that bared an uncanny likeness to US President, Donald Trump.

The controversial photo cost the star her contract with CNN and led to a number of shows being cancelled.

A Secret Service investigation soon followed despite the fact that Kathy had made an apology video and asked photographer, Tyler Shields, to remove the pictures.

However, it now look as though the case has been dropped, with the 56-year-old tweeting to say she has been “completely exonerated”.

During a press conference last month, the comedian said she was the first entertainer “in history” to be hounded by a president, and claimed that Trump was using her as a “shiny object” to distract the public from the FBI investigation into Russian collusion.

Despite having put her career in jeopardy, Kathy has vowed to keep criticising the US president.

Katy Griffin will not return as co-host of CNN's annual New Year's Eve program after photos were released of the comedian holding a bloody head resembling that of Donald Trump.

In a statement, the network said, "CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program."

The images sparked huge controversy online with many accusing the comic of taking the joke too far.  

Donald Trump also weighed in, saying the joke was particularly offensive to his 11-year-old son, Barron. 

Kathy then took to Twitter to apologise for her actions admitting, ''I went too far. I was wrong.''

In the video she said: "The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people… I get it."

"I beg for your forgiveness. I went too far. I made a mistake, and I was wrong."

The comic was also dismissed by a casino in New Mexico where she was scheduled to perform her stand-up show on July 22.

Look, we're not claiming we'd keep our cool if we met Tom Hanks in person, so we're not judging Harry Styles right now, but we are cringing for him after comedian Kathy Griffin shared an exchange which took place between Tom and Harry back in 2014.

In Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index, the popular comedian recalls an awkward moment which played out backstage at an Eagles gig when an intoxicated Harry made a beeline for Tom in an effort to, you know, shoot the breeze and talk movies.

Documenting the moment in eye-watering detail, Kathy may as well have transported us back in time as we watched Harry do what we all would have done in the presence of greatness.

Harry: Re-membah when you wuz savin’ Private Ryan and had to bring ‘im back to ‘is mum? Re-membah?

Tom Hanks politely replies with caution: Yes.

Harry: Re-membah when you wuz in Cappin Phillips? And the other guy sez, ‘Oim’ the capn’ now”? ‘Membah?

Tom, trying go figure this young man out: Yes, yes, I do remember.

Harry: Was that scaarrry?

"Even I wasn’t expecting that question. I turned to Tom: Yeah, Tom, was that scary?" Kathy wrote.

Tom, clearly trying to save Harry Styles from himself (in a way Kendall Jenner never could): Harry, have you met my friend, the comedian Kathy Griffin? (Tom really hit the word comedian hard.)

Harry was unfazed and returned his attention to the great Tom Hanks again …with the questions. It was like he was doing a memory brain teaser.

Harry: Re-membah when you wuz Forrest Gump? ‘Membah? ‘Membah?

Tom, still indulging: I was, yes.

Harry: You wuz always runnin’? Membah?

At this point, Kathy took a break from relating the exchange to chime in and remind her readers: "Yes, he was asking Tom Hanks if Tom remembers playing the role of Forrest Gump, for which he won the Academy Award."

"I can’t point out here enough how Harry Styles seemed to think it was him mission to make sure Tom Hanks did not forget the names of any of his films or the fact that he had starred in these films."

Kathy then returned to the narrative, and we're back cringing into our sleeves as Harry lumbers on with the conversation.

Harry: That was a good film.

Tom: I do remember.

Without explanation, Harry Styles turned and pivoted away. Tom Hanks had been pretty much frozen in the same sport during this magical and epic exchange. Tom’s answer was perfect and delivered very dryly:

Tom: Sometimes, I just want to drive them to rehab myself.

And that, ladies, is what happened when Harry met… Tom.

It has been confirmed that Fashion Police is being pulled from E!’s schedule for a period of time.

The news may come as an unsurprising turn of events for many fans after Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin both quit the show following the scandal surrounding Giuliana Rancic’s comments about Zendaya’s hair.

Although the show has been pulled from schedules for the time being, it appears that Fashion Police WILL return in September – as will hosts Giuliana and Brad Goreski.

In a statement, E! addressed the Fashion Police situation, saying: “E!’s comedy series Fashion Police is going on hiatus and will return in September. We look forward to taking this opportunity to refresh the show before the next awards season. Our talented co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski, along with executive producer Melissa Rivers, will continue their roles as we evolve the show into its next chapter for the legions of Fashion Police fans around the world.”

Many fans of the show believe that the show should have been pulled following the death of Joan River in December – but it looks as if it isn’t going anywhere quite yet!

Let’s just hope things have died down by then…

After Kelly Osbourne's dramatic exit from Fashion Police earlier this month, yet another presenter has decided to leave the show.

Kathy Griffin, who was announced as Joan Rivers' replacement back in November, has quit the show after appearing on just seven episodes.

It seems her departure may be linked to recent drama over Giulana Rancic's comments about singer Zendaya wearing dreadlocks on the red carpet.

Kelly made it clear that her decision to depart was very much linked to the Zendaya scandal, and now it seems Kathy may have followed suit.

"I discovered that my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show and now it's time to move on," the comedienne explained on Twitter last night. "My brand of humor, while unrepentant and unafraid, is all about CONTEXT…Listen, I am no saint…But I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference.”

E! released a statement late last night thanking Kathy for her short-lived time on the show. "We wish her all the best and are grateful for her time on the show, as well as the many laughs that she gave us all," it read.

Fashion Police will air as normal next Monday with Joan Rivers' daughter Melissa – who is also the show's executive producer – stepping in to take Kathy's place alongside Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski.

Just when we thought all of the drama surrounding Fashion Police was over, Kathy Griffin speaks out about it!

The comedian, who replaced Joan Rivers on the panel show following her death late last year has now decided to add her two cents to the scandal involving Giuliana Rancic and Zendaya.

Following Giuliana’s inappropriate comments of Zendaya’s dreadlocks, Kelly Osbourne famously stepped away from the show with no replacement announced as of yet.

Kathy was asked in a recent interview with the Chicago Sun-Times Splash magazine if she believed the same events would have unfolded if she had made the comments instead of Giuliana.

Honestly, Kathy answered: “Probably not.”

However, the comedian added that it would never have come to that in the first place as she would never have made such a comment:

“But I wouldn’t have said the joke in the first place. Some dude wrote it for her. Don’t have anyone write you jokes or even suggest jokes for you on Fashion Police. You have enough great insider gossip from actually being on the red carpet. That’s what fans want to hear the next day. Just talk and be yourself.”

Let’s hope Giuliana takes Kathy’s advice on board!

We’re all still reeling from the sudden death of veteran comedienne Joan Rivers, but as they say in Hollywood the show must go on.

Talks have been ongoing since Joan’s death in August regarding her replacement on style show, Fashion Police, and it has been confirmed that Kathy Griffin, Joan's on-screen daughter in 90’s TV show Suddenly Susan, will be the woman to take her place.

Kathy Griffin, a comedienne and TV presenter in her own right, was offered the position last month but was unsure if she was going to take it, saying “I don’t know if the situation is correct at this time for me or right for me at this time.” Seems like the fifty-four-year-old red head has thought it over and decided to go for it. We think she made the right choice!

Aside from a new presenter, the show on E! which made its screen debut in 2010, will be undergoing a format change. Instead of our weekly dose of catty comments and fashion tips, the programme will only air during award shows and other high profile events. Aw sadface!

Kathy will be joining regular hosts Kelly Osborne and Giuliana Rancic on the popular show and we’re sure her outrageous sense of humour will be a perfect fit.

The Twitter feud between Kathy Griffin and Demi Lovato seems to have finally come to an end, after the Neon Lights singer asked fans to “chill” after sending death threats to the American comedian.

The feud began after the comedian was asked “who was the biggest douche celeb” she ever met and she responded saying it was Demi Lovato.

Kathy also said that the singer needed to calm down about Lady GaGa getting “barfed on” which was in response to Lovato’s comments that Lady GaGa was promoting bulimia.

Demi responded to the 53-year-old’s tweet saying: “Only a ‘douche’ to people I can’t stand.”

But Demi’s fans caught wind of the feud and began sending death threats to Griffin.

Demi has since sent an apology tweet on behalf of her fans to the comedian.

Demi also sent a message to her fans about sending hate to others saying she appreciated their support but what they were doing was cyber-bullying:

“I love you guys so much but y’all gotta chill with sending hate towards other people. Regardless of what they say or do.. The cruel things some of you are saying can really, REALLY hurt people. It’s called cyber-bullying and somethings should NEVER be wished upon EVER. No matter WHAT.”
