Kathy Griffin Apologizes for Severed Donald Trump Head Photo

Comedian Kathy Griffin is begging for forgiveness after she posted a photo depicting her holding the bloody severed head of the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump.

“I’m a comic,” Griffin said. “I cross the line. I move the line, then I cross it. I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny. I get it.” She said she is asking celebrity photographer Tyler Shields to take down the photo. “I beg for your forgiveness. I went too far,” she said in the post on Tuesday. “I made a mistake and I was wrong.”

Donald Trump responded saying:

Chelsea Clinton responded via Twitter stating:

The photos also gained the attention of the Secret Service, with the agency tweeting late Tuesday, “threats made against @SecretService protectees receive the highest priority of all of our investigations.”

“It was deeply inappropriate and runs contrary to the core values our company stands for,” Squatty Potty chief executive officer Bobby Edwards said in a statement. “We have acted swiftly and decisively to demonstrate our commitment to a culture of decency, civility, and tolerance.”
