Comedian Kathy Griffin is going on the record to say she is no longer sorry for the photoshoot that featured Griffin holding a beheaded President Trump, which was also covered in fake blood.
After receiving massive amounts of pushback, Griffin apologized on social media. Saying she “sincerely” apologizes, Griffin went on to say she's “a comic and crossed the line, moved the line and then I crossed it. I went way too far.”
She has now changed her mind.
“I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was B.S., the whole thing got so blown out of proportion and I lost everybody,” Griffin told Australian morning show, “Sunrise.” “Like, I had Chelsea Clinton tweeting against me. I had friends, Debra Messing from 'Will and Grace,' tweeting against me.”
“And I found out that it turns out the rest of the world can't stand Trump and they're not afraid of me and they don't even think that I am in ISIS,” Griffin told another Australian network:
“Because things got so crazy here that for the first time in the history of this country a sitting United States president used the Oval Office and the entire Department of Justice to use taxpayer dollars and put me, Kathy Griffin, under a two-month federal investigation instead of, I don't know, reading a book or not acting like a moron.”
In a video detailing the making of the photoshoot, Griffin says she and Tyler Shields, the photographer, are “not afraid to do images that make noise.” She went on to joke how the lighting makes her look younger.
Griffin also joked about how they will have to move to Mexico in order to avoid jail time.
