UPDATE: Hours after Kathy Griffin’s photoshoot with a fake bloody Donald Trump head made the internet rounds, the official Twitter account for the U.S. Secret Service has issued a statement.
Kathy Griffin has made a career out of shocking her public by telling stories of Lindsay Lohan’s fire crotch and simulating oral sex with Anderson Cooper on CNN, but she took things to a whole new level with this controversial photo shoot.
Shot by celebrity photographer and director Tyler Shields, the comedian stares the camera down in one photo, as she holds what resembles the bloody head of president Donald Trump.
In other photos shot by Shields, Griffin poses by the pool in a revealing leather getup as a man holding a camera stands above her.
According to New York Magazine writer Yashar Ali, Griffin claims that the image is an “Expression of art” inspired by Trump’s comments about former Fox News correspondent Megyn Kelly having “Blood coming out of her eyes” and “Out of her – wver.”
The “Blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her ears, blood coming out of her wver” statement.
After news of the photo shoot broke, Griffin took to Twitter to explain her motivations behind the image and reiterate that she does not condone violence in any way.
We think it’s safe to say Griffin won’t be apologizing anytime soon.
