Lightning rod comedian Kathy Griffin delivered what many observers may find a surprising response to the uproar over a video clip posted Tuesday in which she raises a mockup of a bloody severed head resembling Donald Trump.
Griffin, who has a reputation for outrageous behavior and is not known for backing down, posted a follow-up video clip on her Twitter account in which she apologizes profusely for the incident.
“I am sorry. I went too far. I was wrong,” Griffin writes in a message posted above the video. In the clip she says, “I sincerely apologize. I am just now seeing the reaction of these images. I’m a comic, I crossed the line — I moved the line and then I crossed it. I went way too far.”
Griffin also admits that the image is disturbing and says she’s taking it down and also asking the photographer to take it down. “It wasn’t funny — I get it,” she says.
