Kathy Griffin spent most of the day trying to convince the world that she really didn’t mean it when she appeared in a photo holding an image of President Trump’s decapitated head.
According to the New York Daily Post, Chelsea Clinton tweeted, “This is vile and wrong. It is never funny to joke about killing a President.”
The Secret Service was reported to be investigating Ms. Griffin as a possible threat to the President.
While Griffin initially appeared to relish her newfound fame, she quickly came to realize that she had crossed the line of good taste.
I sincerely apologize, I am just now seeing the reaction of these images. I’m a comic. I crossed 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.
— Kathy Griffin
Griffin has appeared regularly with CNN’s Anderson Cooper for CNN’s New Year Eve celebration. Perhaps not surprisingly, CNN has yet to make an announcement that they are firing Griffin.
