On Tuesday, Kathy Griffin has sincerely apologized for posting a picture of her posing next to a bloody “beheaded Donald Trump,” saying she “crossed a line.”

Her Apology

After Kathy Griffin posted a photo of herself with a bloodied “Donald Trump” head, and sparked outrage, she sincerely apologized, saying “I crossed a line.”

Griffin had previously defended the picture, saying it was “nothing more than art,” but now says she sees why it disturbed people. She had also previously tweeted saying: Griffin had also : “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.”

Now, she says: “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 offense people. It wasn’t funny. I get it.”

Comments on the Picture

Donald Trump Jr, Trump’s son, tweeted saying: “Disgusting but not surprising. This is the left today. They consider this acceptable. Imagine a conservative did this to Obama as POTUS.”

The people who were set off by the picture weren’t only Trump supporters. Some of Trump’s most adamant critics were also disturbed by it.  Anderson Cooper, from CNN and known critic of Donald Trump, tweeted saying: “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.”

The US Secret Service also responded seriously to the photo. They tweeted saying: “On it! @SecretService… monitors open source reporting & social media to evaluate threats. Threats made against @SecretService protectees receive the highest priority of all of our investigations.”
