Kathy Griffin apologises for her photo with beheaded Trump dummy
New Delhi [India], May 31 (ANI): After facing a terrific backlash for her latest stunt, a photo with a bloodied replica of U.S President Donald Trump's decapitated head, Kathy Griffin has issued an apology on Twitter.
"I sincerely apologize," Griffin said in 31-second video posted to Twitter.
"Hey everybody, it's me, Kathy Griffin. I sincerely apologize. I'm 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 offends people. It wasn't funny. I get it. I've made a lot of mistakes in my career, I will continue. I ask for your forgiveness. Taking down the image. I'm going to ask the photographer to take down the image. And I beg for your forgiveness. I went too far. I made a mistake and I was wrong," she said.
For the unversed, the comedian, on her Twitter handle uploaded a clip, which sees a tough-faced Griffin gazing forward as she lifts up the blood-splattered, beheaded Trump dummy, by its trademark hair.
Without any regret for doing so, the 56-year-old comedian wrote, "1/ I caption this "there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his…wherever" Also @tylershields great Photog/film maker."
Adding, "2/ OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever! I'm merely mocking the Mocker in Chief." (ANI)
