Griffin has co-hosted the network's New Year's Eve program alongside Anderson Cooper since 2007.

President Donald Trump posted on Twitter Wednesday morning to say that the photo had upset his family, especially his youngest son.

"I'm a comic. I move the line and then I cross it".

Griffin later apologized. In a video posted on Instagram, she said she "went way too far". I went way too far.

But some, including Trump's son, have refused to accept Griffin's apology. "It wasn't amusing. I get it.I sincerely apologize". "I'm merely mocking the Mocker in Chief".

The head in the photos - taken by famous snapper Tyler Shields - has the US President's distinctive blonde hair.

"As a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing", Melania Trump said in a statement released later Wednesday. Griffin has lost a decade-long gig ringing in the new year for CNN, according to the Associated Press. Taking down the image, gonna ask the photographer to take down the image and I beg for your forgiveness.

Griffin has already apologized for the polarizing turn of events, which was publicized online on Tuesday.

However, the apology did not tone down the rage over the image, with CNN axing the comedienne from its New Year's show, which she hosted alongside Anderson Cooper. Her Route 66 Casino appearance scheduled for July 22 has also now been canceled. "I made a mistake and I was wrong", she added in the 31-second clip.

"It wasn't right when peoplel [sic] hung lynched Obama effigies, just as what Kathy Griffin did isn't right now", Messing wrote on Twitter. Squatty Potty, a Utah-based company whose products include toilet stools and other bathroom accessories, said it also was suspending an ad campaign that featured Griffin.
