Anderson Cooper Still Friends With Kathy Griffin Despite Donald Trump Photo Shoot Scandal

If you were worried about the journalist's friendship with Kathy Griffin, don't be. They're just fine.

"Yeah, we're still friends," Anderson Cooper told Andy Cohen when he visited Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, July 25, 2017. "Look, I said what I said about...I didn't think what she said was appropriate, but I wish her the best and I hope she bounces back."

When Cohen suggested that Griffin would be back on tour soon, Cooper agreed, noting, "She's incredibly funny and a lot of people love her ,and I think she'll bounce back from this."

Cooper, of course, is referring to Griffin's controversial photo shoot, in which she held a prop of President Donald Trump's bloodied decapitated head. After facing swift backlash for sharing such a disturbing image, Griffin later apologized. But the damage was already done. CNN fired her from her New Year's Eve TV gig, which she'd co-hosted with Cooper for years.

At the time, Cooper, 50, spoke out against Griffin, tweeting, "For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate."

However, the silver-haired fox later said that he wanted "nothing but good things for [Griffin]," adding that he didn't "want anybody's career to be destroyed because they do something unfortunate and inappropriate."

He added, "You know, I think I said that I thought it was completely inappropriate and I didn't approve it in any way, and I think when you're friends with somebody you can say that."

Here's hoping that the two continue to remain friends! We're sure Griffin, 56, could use some support during this time in her life.
