Comedian Kathy Griffin has long been an outspoken figure when it comes to politics and women’s rights. On Tuesday, however, it seemed as though Griffin had gone too far for some people, as she posted a photograph of herself holding a decapitated head that was made up to resemble President Donald J. Trump.
Griffin, feeling the heat of the internet, has decided to apologize for her actions. “I sincerely apologize,” she says in the thirty second video clip, “I am just now seeing the reaction of these images, I’m a comic, I crossed the line… I went way too far.” Watch the full apology video above.
The photos in question were taken by Florida-based photographer Tyler Shields, who posted video from the photo shoot, which you can watch below. The video shows Griffin slowly raising the blooded mask up into the air. “This is fake blood, just so you know,” Griffin says in the video. “I won’t give away what we are doing, but Tyler and I are not afraid to do images that make noise.”
