Kathy Griffin Beheads Donald Trump in Graphic Photo Shoot

The Latest: Melania Trump says Griffin video 'simply wrong'

United States comedian Kathy Griffin may have hoped to make art in holding up a prop depicting Mr Donald Trump's bloodied, severed head. While he didn't give a direct yes or no answer, he again defended what he does without going into any detail; as it seemed, he was more concerned about eating the ice cream he had just purchased at Gelson's supermarket in Los Angeles, where TMZ had run into him for the interview.

I just read an article on the CNN website penned by SE Cupp titled: Kathy Griffin's unforgivable message to America and the world.

Shields also directed and conceptualized a violent video for rocker Marilyn Manson that involved, as the Daily Beast described it, "beheading a blond man in a dark suit and red power tie who resembles Donald Trump".

After the blow back, Griffin issued a lengthy apology video Tuesday where she admitted the error of her ways.

Her actions have cost her a New Year's Eve hosting stint on CNN, endorsement deals and a series of upcoming gigs in New Mexico, California, and New Jersey, while former leader Bill Clinton's daughter Chelsea and newsman Anderson Cooper are among those attacking Kathy for taking part in the controversial shoot. "Frankly I don't think she matters", the CNN contributor wrote in an email.

In a tweet Wednesday, Trump said that Griffin "should be ashamed of herself". But reports of what she said drew fire from many, including Catholic League President Bill Donohue, who called it a "vulgar, in-your-face brand of hate speech". There were a bunch of different ideas thrown around and then, I was like, "This is the one we gotta do". "I went too far", she stated.

"The image is too disturbing". And, even though she apologized and begged for forgiveness, the media erupted negatively over the bloody photo.

Later, she deleted her tweets and took down the image. "I think Trump made a mistake in responding to her because it elevated her and her disgusting antic to a level she doesn't deserve. Gonna ask the photographer to take down the image", she said.
