Kathy Griffin Shaved Her Head to Support Her Sister With Cancer

But it's not a mere publicity stunt, it's an act of solidarity, a gesture meant to show that she's standing by her sister who is now getting chemotherapy.

Given that she didn't shave her head for him, I'm assuming that she likes her sister more.

Photos surfaced Monday on Twitter of Griffin showing off her freshly-shaved head.

Retweeting the USA reporter's Twitter post, she wrote: 'My daughter Kathleen Mary is a wonderful human being'. People recalled that in 2014 Griffin's older brother, Gary, died at age 63 from esophageal cancer.

It is unclear what type of cancer Griffin's sister has or how far the illness has progressed.

The "My Life on the D-List" star has kept a relatively low profile since she sparked furious backlash from all sides of the political spectrum for posting a photo of herself holding a fake severed, bloodied head that resembled President Donald Trump. In a Wall Street Journal interview in 2015, she shared that the two shared a room growing up. Trump also responded to the photo on Twitter. The vile viral photo wound up costing the author of Kathy Griffin's Celebrity Run-Ins her job co-hosting the New Year's Eve ball drop alongside Anderson Cooper for CNN.

Shaved off her hair, don't care.

"I sincerely apologize. I'm a comic, I cross the line". It wasn't amusing. I get it.

Below is Ali's tweet, featuring Griffin sans her strands. On Friday, she tweeted that she's "no longer under federal investigation" and that she has been "completely exonerated".
