Comedian Kathy Griffin, made headlines Tuesday afternoon for posting a classless photograph of herself holding a mock “decapitated” head of Donald Trump. After being widely criticized for her actions, Griffin issued a sincere apology on Tuesday night.
In a video posted to her Twitter account, Griffin asked for forgiveness:
“Hey everybody, it’s me, Kathy Griffin. I sincerely apologize. I’m just now seeing the reaction of these images. I’m a comic, I crossed the line. I move the line then I cross it. I went way too far. The image is too disturbing, I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny. I get it. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my career, I will continue. I ask for your forgiveness. Taking down the image. I’m going to ask the photographer to take down the image. And I beg for your forgiveness. I went too far. I made a mistake and I was wrong.”
Her apology although sincere falls short, as she did not apologize to the president. DML let her know in a tweet of his own.
you're classless, and your apology falls short because you failed to do one thing… apologize to the president.
