Entertainment news outlets report Griffin's sister, Joyce, has cancer, though the type of cancer has not been disclosed.

The beleaguered comedian shaved off her hair in solidarity with her sister Joyce Griffin, who's undergoing chemotherapy in her cancer battle, according to outlets.

Her mother later took to Twitter to comment on the show of support and added: 'My daughter Kathleen Mary is a wonderful human being'.

In the second photo Kathy is sitting next to her mom Maggie Griffin, who's covering her mouth in surprise after seeing the attractive gesture. That's right: her signature red locks are no more. On Friday, she tweeted that she's "no longer under federal investigation" and that she has been "completely exonerated". Yashar Ali, the famous writer, has revealed some of Griffin's photos on Twitter last Monday.

While the investigation may be over, the damage was done.

After enduring a few months of turmoil for posing with what looked like President Trump's severed head, Kathy Griffin is back in the public eye, this time without any hair and for a great cause. It's a new look for Griffin, but that physical manifestation is so incredibly secondary. Trump also responded to the photo on Twitter. "My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this". I crossed the line... It wasn't amusing. I get it.

She apologized soon after, saying: "I'm a comic".
