In the first 15 minutes of CNN’s New Year’s Eve Special, Kathy Griffin managed to antagonize, provoke and entertain in her own unrivaled way. Early comments included, “Can I get a pap smear from Dr. Sanjay Gupta?” “Has Ryan Seacrest been shot?” and, about former CNNer Glenn Beck, “He’s a heroin addict Mormon.”
But it was toward the end of the live two-hour special that Griffin really went blue. She was chastising a heckler for mocking her, saying, “Why don’t you get a job buddy. You know, I don’t go to your job and knock the d—s out of your mouth.”
But TVNewser noticed that for the re-air (around 3:51amET) CNN edited out the moment, cutting to commercial break instead. The original clip is below:
