LOS ANGELES — Kathy Griffin is once again attracting attention because of a head — but this time it’s her own. The comedian shaved off her hair to support her sister who is battling cancer.

On Monday, writer Yashar Ali tweeted photos of Griffin with her new look.

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

In one of the photos, Griffin is joined by her mother, Maggie Griffin.

Griffin is one of five children.

In 2014, her brother, Gary, died of cancer.

“Our last real conversation, w my brother I loved so much, was just a few days go when I got him this signed picture from his idol, @JoeWalsh,” Griffin wrote in 2014 in an Instagram tribute to her brother. “He loved the Eagles, 70s rock, The Chicago White Sox and the Xavier “muskies”… Oh & he was funny as sh*t.”
