Kathy Griffin is in hot water after posting the above photo. The comedian apparently wanted to create an image that would “make noise”. TMZ posted a behind the scenes video of the photo shoot that Kathy and Tyler Shields shot.
Kathy’s photo has rightfully sparked outrage. Trump responded on Twitter and mentioned that his kids were troubled by the photo.
Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!

Others have chimed in as well to share in their disgust for Kathy’s inappropriate photo.
For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.

Our politics have become too base, too low, & too vulgar, but Kathy Griffin’s post descends into an even more repugnant & vile territory.

Kathy Griffin apologized soon after posting the image.
I am sorry. I went too far. I was wrong. pic.twitter.com/LBKvqf9xFB
