Kathy Griffin ‘should be ashamed’ of severed head stunt, Trump says

Griffin apologizes for appearing in video holding Trumps severed head, as president says: My children are having a hard time with this

Donald Trump has said Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself for appearing in a video holding what looked like Trumps bloody, severed head.

In a post on Twitter on Wednesday morning, the president said: My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!

His wife Melania also spoke out against the image. As a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing, the first lady said, according to NBC News. When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it.

Griffin has apologized, saying that the brief video was too disturbing and wasnt funny. I went too far, she says in a second video. I sincerely apologize.

Griffin had posed for the shot during a photo session with photographer Tyler Shield. Many people online called for Griffin to be jailed.

CNN, whose New Years Eve coverage Griffin has co-hosted, called the images disgusting and offensive and cut ties with the comedian.
