It took CNN a full day to decide what to do about Kathy Griffin after her disgusting photo was revealed, fortunately, it didn’t advertisers a full day to figure out what to do about CNN…
The ADT Corporation, the largest security company in the United States and Canada, announced Wednesday that it will pull its ads from CNN in the wake of the growing drama surrounding a photograph showing Kathy Griffin lifting up a bloodied decapitated head meant to resemble President Donald Trump.
A Twitter user sent ADT a message asking the Florida-based company to “drop CNN.”
“We do not support these views,” ADT responded. “We’ve begun the process of pulling our ads from this network.”

ADT’s announcement comes as the Route 66 Hotel and Casino in Albuquerque, NM has canceled Griffin’s scheduled performance.
“The performance by Kathy Griffin on July 22nd has been cancelled,” the casino wrote in a message posted to Facebook. A full refund to any guests who purchased a ticket was also promised.
Griffin’s social media accounts were flooded with calls from social media users urging others to boycott her upcoming cross-country comedy tour dates and venues to deny her a platform to perform.
This is awesome, drive CNN out of business!
