Unhinged Kathy Griffin Drops a “Tick Tock” On Jake Tapper After CNN Producer Is Fired Over Harassment Claims

CNN has fired senior producer Teddy Davis over multiple harassment allegations. 

“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,” tweeted Washington Post reporter Paul Farhi.

Hollywood Reporter says:

“A comprehensive investigation was conducted as soon as this matter was brought to our attention. The behavior attributed to Mr. Davis does not align with the standards and values of CNN and Mr. Davis is no longer with the company,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday.

Davis served as producer on the network’s State of the Union, hosted by Jake Tapper, prior to his termination.

According to a source at CNN, the network’s internal investigation into Davis surfaced instances of the ousted producer making fellow colleagues uncomfortable. There were no reports of physical or sexual assault.

Shortly after the news broke, Jake Tapper confirmed the report in a tweet.

“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,” tweeted Tapper.

Now this…

Kathy Griffin is no stranger to saying and doing crazy things. If it weren’t for some of the biggest names in media being brought down by sex scandals, the comedians bizarre tweet directed at CNN’s Jake Tapper could easily be written off. Yet, in today’s wild and crazy news cycle, nothing should be taken for granted or overlooked.

Griffin replied to Tapper’s tweeted confirming Davis’ firing with “Tick tock, Jake. XXOO,KG.”

Is Tapper next to get rocked by a sex scandal?

First, when the Lauer news dropped, the comedian has this to say:

“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”

Griffin then set her sights on Tapper.

A concerned Twitter user replied, “Say it’s not so Jake. I can deal with Chris Sabian (Spacey) and Dr Huxtable, but not my source for realism against the orange!”

“It’s not so! No idea what she’s talking about. Maybe just how inevitably there will soon be another — but it sure won’t be me,” replied a defense Tapper.

“How can she get away w/this? And the tick tock shit us straight outta hannity bs,” tweeted another user.

“She’s had a rough year, I can’t begin to understand what’s going on,” replied Tapper.

It’s been a rough year for Griffin, indeed. We wonder why?
