Photo cred: Screenshot from Squatty Potty ad
Despite her (heartfelt?), “apology”, the fallout from Kathy Griffin‘s ‘ Severed Head Trump Pic’, continues…
To get you up to speed, she has been condemned by the VFW (the oldest war veterans organization), they said the photo was:
“incredibly revolting attack on the President of the United States” … and does NOT accept her apology.“What she did was not humorous nor should it be protected speech or expression. Playing to an audience with a severed head is what our enemies do”
She has also been FIRED *Donald Trump Voice* by CNN as co-host of their New Year’s Eve show she has been co hosting alongside Anderson Cooper since 2007.
And Silver Fox himself (aka Anderson Cooper), let the world know he’s not down with the Griffin’s actions via this Tweet:
For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.

Now I don’t want to downplay the severity of the above (on top of the majority of internet sending her all of their hate)…but…I think the endorsement Kathy should be the losing the most sleepover…is that she pooped the bed (pun intended), with THIS company!!!
Squatty Potty has pulled their ads featuring Griffin and will no longer be working with the comedian. The CEO released the following statement:
“We were shocked and disappointed to learn about the image Ms. Griffin shared today, it was deeply inappropriate and runs contrary to the core values our company stands for. In response, Squatty Potty has suspended its ad campaign featuring Ms. Griffin. We have acted swiftly and decisively to demonstrate our commitment to a culture of decency, civility and tolerance.”
If you are scratching your head wondering ‘what in tarnations is a Squatty Potty???!!!!”…well my friend, you are in for a TREAT!
CLEARLY The Squatty Potty along with it’s super catchy promotional campaign is one of the greatest creations of our time!!!!!!!!!!! You lost out big time sista.
And PS, I’m not even joking. Seriously. If you know me, you know this is “serious Blake talk”. And if you don’t… well welcome to the GONG SHOW!!! I hope you enjoy your stay 🙂 #BYOB
