Kathy Griffin No Longer Under Investigation for Decapitated Trump Photo
In May, Kathy Griffin posted a photo of her holding a decapitated head that very much resembled Donald Trump.
After an intense federal investigation, the funny woman can finally say that she's in the clear.
The 56-year-old confirmed on Twitter that she is no longer under federal investigation.
"TODAY. The @AP has to clarify. I am no longer under federal investigation. The case is closed, I have been completely exonerated. Finally,” she wrote.
The comedian faced a lot of backlash after she released the photo in May.
She was fired from CNN’s New Year’s Eve special after the network released a statement calling the images “disgusting and offensive.”
Anderson Cooper, her longtime friend, didn't even side with her.
“For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate,” he tweeted in response.

The Secret Service was investigating the redhead for months after the photos were released.
“Kathy Griffin has been interviewed by the Secret Service, in-person, for over an hour. Investigation is still not closed,” a New York Magazine reporter tweeted on July 3.
Kathy called out TMZ on June 27 for their coverage of the President and briefly mentioned her investigation status.
“Hey, I don’t give a F anymore. TMZ & Harvey Levin may u NEVER b under fed investigation like I am now,” she posted on Twitter.
In a news conference on June 2, the activist accused Trump of bullying her.
"If you don't stand up, you get run over. What's happening to me has never happened in this great country. A sitting president of the U.S. ... is personally trying to ruin my life forever,” she said.
Although it seems as though she learned her lesson from all of this, she still frequently posts commentary of the President on social media.
