A thousand words

Kathy Griffin apologizes for Trump decapitation photos: “I beg for your forgiveness”

Comedian Kathy Griffin has recorded an anxious-looking apology mere hours after a photo shoot depicting her holding the severed head of Donald Trump became public.

TMZ shared the photo of Griffin, shot by photographer Tyler Shields.

Joking about the image, Griffin apparently said “that she and Tyler would need to move to Mexico once the pics got released.”

Here’s just a small portion of the swift reaction on social media:

Here’s what she had to say via her Facebook page:

Hey everybody, its me Kathy Griffin. I sincerely apologize. I am 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 ask your forgiveness taking down the image, gonna 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.

I am sorry. I went too far. I was wrong.
