Kathy Griffin: ‘I Am No Longer Sorry’ for Severed Trump Head

She's also apparently no longer friends with Anderson Cooper.

Comedian Kathy Griffin has retracted her apology for doing a photo shoot in which she held up a replica of President Trump’s bloody, severed head, according to The Washington Examiner.

In May, Griffin did a photo shoot with a prop of the president’s head, and while blood dripped from its face, she held the head next to hers.

She apologized following the incident, but it appears that her repentance has been retracted:

“I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was B.S., the whole thing got so blown out of proportion and I lost everybody,” Griffin told the Seven Network in Australia about the incident in May. “Like, I had Chelsea Clinton tweeting against me. I had friends, Debra Messing from ‘Will and Grace,’ tweeting against me.”

Griffin blamed “hardcore” Trump supporters for the fallout, which included her firing from CNN, and pushed back against assertions that even Democrats thought the shoot was out-of-line.

Griffin also said that the Trump administration was committing “atrocities,” though she did not cite any examples of crimes against humanity.

She had also previously hosted CNN’s New Year’s coverage with Anderson Cooper, but has ended her friendship with the host, according to a profile in The Cut:

The fact that Cooper was telling people publicly they were friends, while not checking in with her, hurt Griffin deeply. When he finally reached out to her in a series of text messages, she told him their friendship was over.
