No, Kathy Griffin's social media accounts were not hacked. Apparently, the short video clip uploaded to announce that the comedian's online profiles have been hacked was just a publicity stunt to tease the public about her upcoming world tour.

Griffin to hold world tour following her Trump controversy

On Sunday, the "My Life on the D-List" star confirmed the details of her "Laugh Your Head Off" world tour which will kick off in New Zealand on October 17. The 44-second promotional video featured Kathy Griffin's bold statements that proved her tenacity to talk about some of the most controversial personalities and assured that "nothing is off limits" on the show.

She even suggested that she will be discussing her ongoing feud with Donald Trump, which started when she uploaded a photo of herself holding a replica of the U.S. president's decapitated head.

It is worth noting that the standup comedian came under fire when she personally shared the cryptic photo on social media in May. The said image was from her photo shoot with renowned photographer, Tyler Shields, who refused to apologize over the controversy.

Kathy Griffin, on the other hand, immediately uploaded a video message to extend her apologies to those who were offended by the image. She even called herself a "comic" and acknowledged that she has "crossed the line" for doing such act.

But despite her apologies, the comedian saw the aftermath of her controversial photo shoot when CNN decided to cut their ties with her. The 56-year-old TV personality was a regular host of the network's "New Year's Eve Broadcast" with Anderson Cooper since 2009.

Even her co-host admitted that he was "appalled" when he saw Kathy Griffin's photo with the president's severed head. Anderson Cooper thought it was "clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate" to go that far in attacking the U.S. leader.

Donald Trump also criticized the comedian for her "sick" depiction of him [VIDEO]. He added that the "Suddenly Susan" actress should "be ashamed of herself" for putting his children, especially his youngest son Barron, in a difficult situation. After the members of the First Family shared their opinions on the controversial photo, Kathy Griffin later claimed that she was bullied by them over the issue.

"I'm a woman in a very male-dominated field. I love what I do. I love making people laugh more than anything in the world," she said at a press conference.

In July, the standup comedian set the record straight on reports claiming that she will be facing jail time for her decapitated photo of the president [VIDEO]. "I am no longer under federal investigation. The case is closed. I have been completely exonerated. Finally," she wrote.
