An unhinged Kathy Griffin (is there any other kind?) went off on some of her former friends at CNN.
Soon after news broke that CNN producer Teddy Davis was fired amid at least three sexual assault allegations Griffin was there to rub his nose in it.
And in still more harassment news: @cnn tells me it dismissed Teddy Davis, senior producer of @jaketapper‘s “State of the Union” program, over behavior “that does not align with the standards and values of CNN.” Three women had complained about Davis.

Teddy Davis was the senior producer for Jake Tapper’s State of the Union show. Not only did Tapper acknowledge the tweet, but he agreed that CNN executives did the right thing.
This tweet is accurate. When CNN executives were told about these complaints, they reacted swiftly and appropriately, as they should. Workplaces need to be safe and I am fully supportive of CNN’s action. https://t.co/S4ZPNfTCPm

Griffin was less than content, and wasted no time pointing out that she knew Davis. The embattled comedian then recalled what allegedly happened when she once suggested to Davis that CNN hire a female to host Meet the Press.
Hi kids. AnyWhoooooo it’s actually way bigger than Matt Lauer. Hey, @jfb, remember at the dinner party when you said NBC wouldn’t consider a woman to host Meet the Press? I suggested Maddow and you, how shall I say, LOST IT, a little? XXOO, KG

Then she seemingly went after Tapper:
Tick tock, Jake. XXOO,KG https://t.co/6LgOE1h5tf

It’s unclear if Griffin was implying that Tapper was the next on the sexual harassment chopping block, but it sure came across that way. Tapper was quick to claim there will be no dirt coming out on him.
It’s not so! No idea what she’s talking about. Maybe just how inevitably there will soon be another — but it sure won’t be me

Griffin has become a loose cannon since she unintentionally ended her career with her now infamous severed-Trump head stunt. She made things worse for herself when she wailed to the world that she was the victim after all of her comedy gig contracts were dropped under immense backlash.
To this day, Griffin is still taking to social media to bemoan her self-inflicted wound that labeled her unemployable.
It took CNN 24 hours to release Griffin from her contract with the network after she posed with the mock bloody Trump head. That didn’t stop Griffin from publicly blasting her former friend and New Year’s Eve co-host Anderson Cooper, saying she felt betrayed when he didn’t support her.
“CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” a statement from the network read.
It certainly seems Griffin has an axe to grind.
