Kathy Griffin is back on President Donald Trump's case and refusing to apologize any longer for releasing a controversial image showing her holding a bloody replica of the president's severed head earlier this year.
A source close to Cooper, 50, told the magazine that Cooper was "shocked and upset by the photo, and while he was not ready to talk to her personally about it, he still considered her to be a friend, and was publicly supportive when asked about the controversy".
Griffin told Ali that when Cooper finally did reach out to his friend, months after the incident, she told him that their friendship was over.
Only a few months after Kathy withdrew and apologized for the almost career-ending Donald Trump's severed head photo was released, Griffin faked her Twitter attack being hacked to get attention for a big announcement.
"It wasn't amusing, I get it", she said in a video announcing that she would remove the images.
"I don't need this, you don't need this", Zucker said, according to Griffin. "She's incredibly amusing and a lot of people love her and I think she'll bounce back from this". Kopelson said that Griffin should "exclusively release the letter to Fox Broadcasting", adding, "Do not send to the other networks".

A tweet on the official handle of the Nigeria Super Eagles read: "Just in: Aaron Samuel called in to replace injured Alex Iwobi ".
Ultimately, the gag also backfired on Griffin, who lost spots in ads and had 15 live appearances across the country canceled from venues who were afraid to be affiliated with her after the stunt, which she estimates cost her more than a million dollars. I move the line, then I cross it. I understand how it offends people. "I will continue. I asked your forgiveness, and I'm gonna ask the photographer to take down the image, and I beg for your forgiveness".
Griffin was sacked from her spot as co-host on CNN's New Year's Eve broadcast and various live performances that she had scheduled were canceled along with an endorsement contract. 'I'm a comedian; he's our f***** president'.
In an interview with The Cut, Griffin gets unabashedly candid about how her life has changed since she became the litmus test for a comedian's limits in the Trump era.
"I would be abandoning my principles as a comic and a human being if I backed off President Trump or any public person", Griffin said.
'President Trump just pardoned Joe Arpaio, who was essentially running a concentration camp in the Arizona desert, ' she said.
"Why are people still expecting me to apologize and grovel to a man that tweets like this?"
