It's been six months since comedian Kathy Griffin was unceremoniously fired from her New Year's gig on CNN in the aftermath of her infamous photoshoot with a bloody decapitated look-alike head of President Donald Trump.
Apparently, Griffin still holds a grudge against the network.
The festivities began Wednesday after CNN fired Teddy Davis, the senior producer of Jake Tapper's “State of the Union” show, over allegations of sexual misconduct:
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.

Tapper confirmed the news:
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

In the wake of NBC “Today” show host Matt Lauer's termination, Griffin on Wednesday first tweeted at NBC executive producer Jim Bell, suggesting there's more bad news to come from the network:
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 fired off an ominous tweet to Tapper:
Tick tock, Jake. XXOO,KG https://t.co/6LgOE1h5tf

“Hugs and kisses.” You don't think she was being sarcastic, do you?
