Kathy Griffin Ended Friendship with Anderson Cooper Over Donald Trump Photo

Kathy Griffin says she ended her friendship with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper after he didn't reach out to her during the firestorm she faced over a controversial photoshoot featuring a decapitated Donald Trump.

Cooper publicly denounced Griffin following the release of the photo, saying: "For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.”

During an appearance on 'Watch What Happens Live' in July, Cooper said: "Yeah, we're still friends. Look, I said a lot. I said what I said. I didn't think what she said was appropriate but I wish her the best and back on the road.”

However, according to a profile done by New York Magazine, Griffin doesn't appreciate the fact that Cooper is claiming the pair are still friends.

"The fact that Cooper was telling people publicly they were friends, while not checking in with her, hurt Griffin deeply,” Yashar Ali writes in the profile.

"When he finally reached out to her in a series of text messages, she told him their friendship was over."

The comedian was fired from CNN's New Years Eve special following the controversial shoot.
