The State Theatre in New Brunswick has canceled a performance by comedian Kathy Griffin that was scheduled for November. The event was canceled less than a week after Griffin posed for a photo shoot with a mock bloodied and severed head of Donald Trump.
Griffin, who originally defended the photo, apologized for going too far less than 24 hours after it was published. “I’m a comic, I crossed the line, I move the line … I went way too far,” she said. “I made a mistake, and I was wrong.”
She was fired by CNN, and several venues have canceled scheduled performances.
“After careful consideration of recent events and for the safety of our patrons, Kathy Griffin’s November 3rd performance has been cancelled,” reads the message posted on the State Theatre Website. “All Kathy Griffin ticket buyers will be issued a full refund.”
If you purchased tickets to for the show via Ticketmaster, call 800-745-3000. If you purchased your tickets through another party, contact them directly.
The Bergen PAC also canceled a performance by Griffin scheduled for November.
