Comedian Kathy Griffin fears arrest over Trump beheading photo
12 Juin, 2017, 15:27 | Author: Lucrece Courtet
Liberal comedian Kathy Griffin confirmed Friday that she is being investigated by the U.S. Secret Service following a publicity stunt where she posed with a bloodied, severed head of President Donald Trump. "A sitting president of the United States is personally trying to ruin my life forever".
CNN reports that Griffin said, "If you don't stand up, you get run over", adding, "What's happening to me has never happened in this great country".
Speaking for the first time since Griffin said: 'I'm going to make fun of The President and I'm going to make fun of him more now'. "I've had everybody turn on me and I just wanna make people laugh".
Griffin says the photo and video shoot were motivated by Trump's comments in August 2015 about then-Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly.
Griffin, too, said the response she received was unprecedented.
"He wants to mess with me?" the comedian said. Griffin says the image was meant to be a parody to what she says were previous sexist remarks by President Trump.
The comic has faced controversies before for her abrasive humor, but none as widespread as the one generated by Tuesday's images.

In a press conference held earlier today, a visibly emotional Griffin explained how she believes the Trumps are trying to sabotage her. "I feel disgusting. I did not think people would try to murder me or mobilize other people to murder me".
Trump said the image of Griffin with the gory mask resembling him was "sick" and had traumatized his family, especially his youngest son, 11-year-old Barron.
Griffin apologized within hours of the images appearing online.
There's been no public word from Griffin since her May 30 Twitterapology.
She said a number of Griffin's engagements have been canceled and blamed Trump for CNN's decision to sever its relationship with the comedian, saying: "Criticize the president; lose your job".
In other words, the Trumps had the audacity to use their celebrity status to respond to an attack against them by Ms. Griffin who (clearing throat) used her celebrity status to attack them.
