Route 66 Casino Cancels Kathy Griffin Show after 'Beheading' Photo Firestorm

Route 66 Casino Cancels Kathy Griffin Show after 'Beheading' Photo Firestorm: The Route 66 Hotel and Casino in Albuquerque has canceled Kathy Griffin’s scheduled appearance after an image of the comedian holding a bloody, decapitated head resembling that of President Donald Trump went viral Tuesday and sparked widespread backlash.

“The performance by Kathy Griffin on July 22nd has been cancelled,” read a note on the New Mexico casino’s Facebook page, promising to refund any guest who purchased a ticket.

Facebook users thanked hotel management for making the decision.

“Thank you for taking a stand against her vile actions,” wrote one commenter on the hotel’s announcement.
