Kathy Griffin Takes Back Her Apology for Decapitated Trump Pic

Kathy Griffin says that she is “no longer sorry” for taking a photo of herself holding a bloody replica of Donald Trump‘s decapitated head.

The comedian is currently promoting her international comedy tour and did an interview with Australia’s Sunrise.

“I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was B.S., the whole thing got so blown out of proportion. I lost everybody – I had Chelsea Clinton tweeting against me!” she said.

Kathy was then asked by the hosts if she understood that people like Clinton and Debra Messing thought the photo was “over the line.”

“You’re full of crap. Stop acting like my little picture is more important than talking about the actual atrocities that the president of the United States is committing,” Kathy said. “I’ve been talking to Australians who, for the first time, are saying ‘We’re afraid to go to America.’ I never thought I would hear that in my lifetime.”

“Why are people still expecting me to apologize and grovel to a man that tweets like this?” she asked one of the hosts. “I’m a comedian; he’s our f–king president.”

President Trump just pardoned Joe Arpaio, who was essentially running a concentration camp in the Arizona desert… He said there are some good Nazis, and he’s kicking out young adults who were brought here as kids by their parents – and I’m the one who has to continue to apologize?” she concluded.

Kathy Griffin Told Anderson Cooper Their Friendship is Over

Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper were great friends for nearly two decades, but their friendship ended after the scandal involving her controversial beheaded Trump photo.

The comedian worked with Anderson on the New Year’s Eve special for CNN for many years and they have known each other even longer than that.

After the scandal happened, Anderson initially did not reach out to Kathy personally, but he wrote a tweet denouncing the photo. “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate,” he said.

Anderson later said in an interview with friend Andy Cohen on July 26 that he is “still friends” with Kathy, but he still hadn’t reached out to her at that point. He finally reached out on August 10, but it was too late.

“When he finally reached out to her in a series of text messages, she told him their friendship was over,” The Cut reports in a new in-depth interview with Kathy.

Kathy is ready to get back into the public eye and is heading out on an international tour later this year!
