Trump says comic should be ashamed for severed head video

United States comedian Kathy Griffin has apologised after posing for a photo holding a bloody severed head resembling Donald Trump's.

On Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump posted on his Twitter account that his son was very upset at a photo that had circulated on Tuesday evening.

The statement refers to Griffin's apology which came late Tuesday afternoon, in which she explained that she had finally seen social media reaction to the photo.

Griffin's annual partner for those Times Square telecasts, CNN correspondent Anderson Cooper, weighed in with his own reprimand: "For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in", he tweeted. She said, "I am sorry. I move the line and then I cross it", she said. I went way too far.

Griffin, who helped with CNN's New Year's Eve coverage, has apologized, saying that the brief video was "too disturbing" and wasn't amusing. "It wasn't amusing. I get it", Griffin said in a Twitter video. I've made a lot of mistakes in my career, I will continue.

Begging for forgiveness, Griffin said she asked Shields to remove the image from his website.

"I beg for your forgiveness". "You know, again, it wasn't, 'I don't want to do this because I might go to jail.' It was like, "Well, I'm gonna do it and whatever happens, happens". Chelsea Clinton posted, "This is vile and wrong". At another point, she jokes to Shields that they're going to have to run away to Mexico after the images go public.

According to a new report from TMZ, the Secret Service is investigating "the circumstances surrounding the photo shoot".

In the wake of a poorly thought out stunt, it appears that Kathy Griffin has lost the support of just about everyone, and that includes the church of Satan.

In a statement CNN said it is "evaluating" New Year's Eve and has not made any decisions yet.

Squatty Potty's now-pulled ad starring Griffin debuted earlier in May.

The CNN news channel, which has featured Griffin as a co-host on its New Year's Eve coverage, said the picture was "disgusting and offensive".
