Lets start by making a list of some of the more…”colorful”  things Kathy Griffin has done during live television shall we?

  • Harshly berate celebrities and world leaders ✓
  • Use profanity during live telecast ✓
  • Strip down to bra and panties during live telecast ✓

LOL as history has shown the “ginger dutchess” of comedy has clearly not let the sensitive nature of live television stop her from her notorious antics. She and core CNN correspondent and close friend, Anderson Cooper, recently hosted The CNN New Years telecast special. Things were going smoothly until well…Kathy dropped to her knees and decided to kiss Anderson Cooper’s crotch (cough) um… “little Anderson”.

While obviously the act was done for comedic relief, there has been backlash from the Parents’ Television council who released this statement

For the past few years, CNN has placed its New Year’s Eve broadcast in the hands of a narcissistic Kathy Griffin, who has shown increasing contempt for the audience through her obscene and unhinged behavior. The onus is now on CNN. Either the network has a policy that allows its on-air talent to fondle a co-anchor’s genitals, or it has a policy that forbids such conduct. We ask CNN’s new CEO Jeff Zucker which one it is.

…in a free marketplace, angry cable consumers would be able to pick up their phones today and cancel CNN from their monthly subscriptions. But because the cable industry operates like a cartel, consumers cannot do so. Hopefully Griffin’s behavior will help Cable Choice become a reality. (PTC Press Release)

Holy controversy!!! While we here at Modern Fashionisto are huge advocates of censoring and appropriateness for the little kiddies, we la-la-LOVEEEEE Kathy Griffin!! Can’t we all just get along?
