"Nazi salutes are indefensible," a CNN spokesperson said in a statement. "Jeffrey Lord is no longer with the network."

Lord said his tweet was misunderstood. He said he was mocking fascists, not acting like one.

"I love CNN, but I feel they are caving to bullies here," he said in a telephone interview shortly after the network's decision was announced.

Lord said his contract was set to expire at the end of the year. He said he greatly respected CNN management despite disagreeing with the decision.

This is not the first time CNN has cut ties with a prominent personality on the network due to an offensive tweet.

Earlier this year CNN cancelled Reza Aslan's documentary series "Believer" after he posted profane anti-Trump tweets.”
