Kathy Griffin Apologizes After Posting "Beheaded Trump" Photo

Comedian, Kathy Griffin, posted a photo of herself holding a bloody and beheaded look-alike head to President Donald Trump.

Even Trump commented on the gruesome photo via Twitter. The extremely controversial photo quickly gained backlash forcing Kathy Griffin to issue an apology. 

In her apology she says: "Hey every body, it's me Kathy Griffin. I sincerely apology. I'm just now seeing the reaction of these images. I'm a comic. I cross the line. I move the line, then I cross it. I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn't funny. I get it. I've made a lot of mistakes in my career. I will continue. I've asked your forgiveness... I beg for your forgiveness. I went too far. I made a mistake and I was wrong."

Griffin also notes that she asked the photographer, Tyler Shields, to remove the photo. Despite the apology, CNN fired Kathy Griffin over the offensive image. 

"CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program," spokesman Shimrit Sheetrit confirmed to USA TODAY in a statement Wednesday.
