Trump Slams Kathy Griffin Decapitation Photo as 'Sick'

Darci Lynne Wiki

First lady Melania Trump questioned Kathy Griffin's "mental health" Wednesday after the comedian sparked an uproar for photos depicting her holding a mock severed head of President Trump.

The agency responded Tuesday after receiving a barrage of complaints about the photo, which shows Griffin holding what appears to be the bloody severed head of President Trump. "The image is too disturbing, I understand how it offends people, it wasn't amusing, I get it". I understand how it offense people.

The US president castigated Kathy Griffin saying she "should be ashamed of herself" for the grisly-looking photograph.

She continued, "I have made a lot of mistakes in my career".

In the 12-second video that sparked the controversy, Griffin wears a grim expression as she slowly brings her hand up into the shot, bringing the mask with it in an image that evoked a severed head.

Griffin then begged for the forgiveness from the audience and owned up her mistake.

NHL Predictions: Will the Predators close out the Ducks? 5/22/17
When reviewing the post game quotes over this series , the Ducks have noted "running out of gas" after games one, three and five. Regardless, Carlyle is confident his team can bring the series back to Anaheim for Game 7 Wednesday night, and why not?

Earlier on Tuesday, CNN released a statement questioning the future employment of its frequent on-air contributor who has co-hosted the network's New Year's Eve coverage with anchor Anderson Cooper in Times Square for the last decade.

She said she'd ask celebrity photographer Tyler Shields to remove the photo and rejected the idea that she was encouraging violence against the President. "We are evaluating New Year's Eve and have made no decisions at this point". Chelsea Clinton posted, "This is vile and wrong".

Squatty Potty, a Utah-based bathroom products company, said in a statement Tuesday that it has suspended an ad campaign featuring Griffin.

Meanwhile, a casino in New Mexico has scrapped a scheduled comedy performance by Griffin after her post.

In a behind-the-scenes video posted by Shields, Griffin asserted to the camera that she and Shields were "not afraid to do images that make noise".
