Comedian Kathy Griffin Apologizes For Bloody Trump Head Photo

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kathy Griffin says she went way too far when she appeared in a brief video Tuesday holding what looked like President Donald Trump’s bloody, severed head.

The comic posted a video later Tuesday apologizing for the video image, saying it was “too disturbing” and wasn’t funny.

The first video showed a straight-faced Griffin slowly lifting the bloody head. She originally described the project with photographer Tyler Shields as an “artsy fartsy statement” mocking the commander in chief.

Griffin says in her apology video that she has asked the photographer to remove the images and begs her fans for forgiveness. Griffin says she made a mistake, went too far and was wrong.

Publicists for Griffin and Shields did not respond to requests for comment Tuesday from The Associated Press.

    Imagine the outrage if less than 200 days into Obama’s 1st term if a comedienne had done this with his head. It was disgusting, disgraceful and she should be black listed and never work again.

    liberalism seems to be expanding as a mental disease , don’t blame her
