Jim Carrey backs Kathy Griffin over Trump decapitation stunt

Adjust Comment Print

Kathy Griffin has apologized for gruesome images showing her holding a fake, bloody, severed Donald Trump head after the backlash lost her a job at CNN and other work.

Griffin, who helped with CNN's New Year's Eve coverage, has apologized, saying that the brief video was "too disturbing" and wasn't amusing.

And a commercial endorsement deal was canceled just weeks after she landed it.

"We were shocked and disappointed" by the video, said Bobby Edwards, the company's CEO. There were a bunch of different ideas thrown around and then, I was like, "This is the one we gotta do".

"Kathy Griffin, hold up a severed leg as well", the comedian said at the premiere of his new Showtime dramedy "I'm Dying Up Here" on Wednesday night.

Griffin has apologized for the video. "Griffin should be ashamed of herself", the president tweeted.

Conservative media has maintained their outrage dialed up to 11 since the photoshoot was teased, assigning the stunt to a broader trend of left-wing violence, and expressing outrage that Trump's son Barron was forced to witness a photo of his father decapitated.

Melania called out Kathy, saying what she did was disturbing, wrong and "makes you wonder about [her] mental health".

AMD's Radeon RX Vega graphics cards likely won't launch until August
Not much is known about AMD's monster Threadripper chips at this point except that they'll appear this summer with up to 16 cores. AMD officials also showed off the company's upcoming Ryzen-based mobile chip in what looked like a reference convertible laptop.

After the blow back, Griffin issued a lengthy apology video Tuesday where she admitted the error of her ways. "I think it is going to stick to her like tar".

But it was too late.

Tapper was referring to a tweet Donald Trump Jr. posted, saying, "Disgusting but not surprising". Such acts have been carried out by the most evil and heinous depraved persons of the world. "I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus".

"She kind of s-- all over my mother's legacy in her statement on leaving", Rivers said.

Her appearance was during the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony, which wasn't aired live but instead was taped for later broadcast by E!

Her comments angered Catholic leaders and were later edited out for the public broadcast. I told him to suck on my machine gun. "No apologies for jokes".

The most shocking part of the interview wasn't Carrey's cavalier attitude toward the Griffin photo, but rather a dream he relayed where he suggested he wanted to beat Trump with a golf club.
