Teasing Anderson Cooper during New Year’s Eve on live TV is Kathy Griffin’s annual tradition … but the 2012/2013 episode has pissed off some guys.
The comedian-CNN presenter has been come under fire from the Parents Television Council (PTC), who have labelled her oral sex stunt on fellow presenter Anderson Cooper live on TV on New Year’s Eve as ‘obscene’.
PTC President Tim Winter told TMZ that Kathy has shown ‘increasing contempt for the audience’, referring to the times when she offered to give Anderson a head before the ball dropped at Times Square.
‘The onus is now on CNN. Either the network has a policy that allows its on-air talent to fondle a co-anchor’s genitals, or it has a policy that forbids such conduct,’ he added.
He also disagreed with the ‘kids-in-bed’ argument, saying that New Year’s Eve is one of the few times in the year when kids are wide awake.
