Tuesday morning images surfaced of Kathy Griffin, co-host and executive producer of CNN’s ‘New Years Eve Live’, holding a severed Trump head in what appeared to be an ISIS style mock execution.

Twitter and Facebook were set ablaze with concerned citizens calling for CNN to disavow their employee’s actions. Furthermore, many were calling for CNN’s advertisers to pull their ads from the network.
Though no advertisers have pulled ads from CNN at this time, a venue for one of Griffin’s scheduled performances this summer has canceled her appearance.
Route 66 Casino has announced Griffin’s July 22nd performance has been canceled.
