Comedienne Kathy Griffin took to Twitter Tuesday afternoon to apologize after participating in a photo shoot while holding a bloodied, severed head that resembled that of President Donald Trump.
Griffin posted an apology video to Twitter on Tuesday evening hours after photos from the shoot circulated online.
“I sincerley apologize,” Griffin said. “I’m a comic, I cross the line. I moved the line, then I crossed it. I went way too far.”
“I made a mistake, and I was wrong,” she said later.
As reported by ABC News:
“I caption this ‘there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his … wherever,’” Griffin tweeted, referring to an exchange between Donald Trump and former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly during the primary season.
But in an attempt to appease those who were offended by the image, the controversial comedienne then tweeted, “OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever! I’m merely mocking the Mocker in Chief.”
Maybe because of the very recent terrorist suicide bombing at the Manchester Arianna Grande concert, but I feel a bit uncomfortable with this image. On the other hand, isn’t that what good art is supposed to do? Make you feel uncomfortable? Make you question your feelings? Start a conversation?
