Trump hits out at comedian over 'sick' beheading photo

The visual is stark- solemn faced, comedian Kathy Griffin holds a bloodied, gory head in front of her.

We got Nicole at LAX Tuesday and she was quick to say Trump "set the bar" for Griffin's photo shoot with Tyler Shields.

President Trump responded to the work to say the comedian "should be ashamed of herself".

Instead Trump said his children were the most affected by the photos, "especially my 11 year old son, Barron".

The image also brought a rebuke not only Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., who said the picture was "disgusting but not surprising", but also from the Secret Service. Chelsea Clinton called it "vile and wrong".

"The image is too disturbing.I understand how it affects people". I sincerely apologize. I'm just now seeing the reaction of these images. "I'm a comic, I crossed the line", Griffin said in a video posted to her Twitter account late Tuesday. "It wasn't amusing. I get it". "I went way too far".

Here Smith is giving the people what they want. "They get to see films they absolutely wouldn't have seen". The brand shared the red carpet photos of the "Piku" star on their official Twitter handle.

"When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it", she said in a statement.

Griffin sent shock waves through social media after a photo taken by celebrity photographer Tyler Shields was released that was seemingly reminiscent of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) beheading videos and photos. "It is never amusing to joke about killing a president".

On Friday May 26 Shields asked on Twitter whether someone can "go to jail for making an artistic statement?"

Griffin, along with Anderson Cooper, is the longtime host of CNN's New Year's Eve broadcast.

Many people called for her head, demanded investigations, and used her to condemn all liberals and leftists.
