She’s out.

Just a day after releasing a picture of herself clutching the birds nest hairdo of a fake and bloodied President Trump head, comedian Kathy Griffin is out of an annual gig to emcee New Year’s Eve alongside Anderson Cooper on CNN. It’s official: New York’s big glittery ball will drop without her.

Griffin apologized. But it was too late. The damage was done.

Even Chelsea Clinton couldn’t stomach the comedian’s stunt. She went on ABC’s “The View” Wednesday to denounce her with the female hosts who absolutely adore her mom, ex-presidential loser Hillary Clinton.

On Tuesday, CNN’s Jake Tapper expressed utter disgust for Griffin’s antics against Trump. He even warned viewers to shield their children from watching the photograph he was about to display.

Somewhere, somehow Cooper is breathing a sigh of relief. No more sudden kisses or spray tanning his Albino-esque face.  Griffin joined Cooper for the first time in 2007.
