Kathy Griffin apologizes for gory photo shoot with fake Trump head

Comedian Kathy Griffin said Tuesday evening she "went too far" posing for photos while holding a bloody and severed head that looked like President Trump.

"I sincerely apologize," she said in a video posted on social media. The images, shot by Tyler Shields and first shared by TMZ, outraged conservatives and liberals alike. Griffin said as a comic, she "moves the line then I cross it, but I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn't funny." She has requested Shields take the photos off the internet, she added, and is asking for "forgiveness. I went too far. I made a mistake, and I was wrong."
