Kathy Griffin Apologizes For Donald Trump Beheading Photo: 'I Went Way Too Far'

Kathy Griffin is acknowledging that she "crossed the line" by posing for a photo with a bloodied replica of President Donald Trump's head in her hand.

"I'm a comic. I crossed the line, I moved the line and then I crossed the line," the Griffin says in a video to her fans. "I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people, it wasn't funny."

This after the comedian received backlash from all corners of the political spectrum for a photo of her seemingly holding Trump's decapitated head.

When she originally shared the photo she said: "I caption this "there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his... wherever. Obviously, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever! I'm merely mocking the Mocker in Chief."

Donald Trump Jr. called the beheading photo "disgusting" before using it as an attack: "Disgusting but not surprising. This is the left today. They consider this acceptable. Imagine a conservative did this to Obama as POTUS? Will CNN keep putting her on air for things like the New Years celebration?"

CNN's Anderson Cooper, her New Year’s Eve co-host was obviously aghast.

"For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in," he said. "It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate."

Even Chelsea Clinton denounced the photo: "This is vile and wrong. It is never funny to joke about killing a president."

Griffin said she was deleting the photo and was going to ask photographer Tyler Shields to follow suit.

"Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself," Trump said on Twitter. "My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick."
