August 01, 2017Aug 01, 2017

On Monday, images of Kathy Griffin, surfaced on social media after she shaved her head to support her sister Joyce, who is battling cancer.

This is the comic who came under fire in May for a disturbing photo shoot in which she held a fake, bloody head resembling President Donald Trump.

A picture of the 56-year-old comedian was shared by journalist Yashar Ali on Monday showing her smiling and rubbing her bald head after she shaved it.

“My daughter Kathleen Mary is a wonderful human being,” the comedian’s mom, Maggie Griffin, posted on Twitter.


"In solidarity with her sister, who is going through chemo, @kathygriffin shaved her head," the tweet read. "Donate to @AmericanCancer."

Kathy Griffin’s brother, Gary Griffin, died to his two-year battle with esophageal cancer in 2014.
