Apparently, holding up an effigy of the president’s decapitated, bloody head can get you into trouble. Who knew?
Well, Kathy Griffin now knows. Even the “covfefe” kerfuffle didn’t knock the D-list celebrity out of the headlines after her horrifying photo shoot. Now, she’s gone from having one night a year on a major television network to zero nights a year, as CNN has decided Griffin is actually unfit to get plastered with Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon on live TV this New Year’s Eve.
That’s pretty brutal — and it was all before President Trump decided to lay into her.
In a tweet, the president called Griffin’s actions “sick” and said the beheading photo had an impact on his family.
According to the U.K. Daily Mail, first lady Melania Trump also released a statement in which she criticized Griffin, saying that “(a)s a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing.”
“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 added.
According to a report in TMZ, Barron Trump was left panicked and screaming when the image of Griffin holding his father’s bloodied head showed up on the television news.
“He’s 11. He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad,” a source told TMZ.
The outrage over Griffin’s photo shoot was exacerbated by the fact that her “apology” didn’t actually mention the president or his family by name. Instead, the comic said she was sorry for “cross(ing) the line.”
That’s not going to work this time — not when you’ve threatened a man with effigial beheading on camera. That’s the kind of thing the Islamic State group does, not anti-Trump celebrities. This is just the beginning of a massive backlash for Griffin, and halfhearted apologies aren’t going to cut it.
