Kathy Griffin is “sorry, not sorry.” The controversial comedian said that she is no longer sorry for a photo shoot in which she held up the bloody, severed head of President Donald Trump.
Griffin told the Australian talk show “Sunrise” on Tuesday that she is rescinding her apology for the bloody photo. She apparently lost gigs and was investigated by the Secret Service. She lost friendships, like her long standing relationship with Anderson Cooper.
“I am no longer sorry,” she said in the clip below. “The whole outrage was BS, the whole thing got so blown out of proportion.”
Griffen continued, “I lost everybody,” she continued in the interview promoting her October tour dates in Australia. “I had Chelsea Clinton tweeting against me … I have been through the mill.”
When the “Sunrise” host Samantha Armytage suggested that even Democrats, those who don’t support Trump, felt that the image crossed the line, Griffen said, “You’re full of crap ― stop this,” she retorted. “… Stop acting like my little picture is more important than talking about the actual atrocities that the president of the United States is committing.”
“I’ve been talking to Australians who, for the first time, are saying, ‘We’re afraid to go to America,’” she added. “I never thought I would hear that in my lifetime.”
After reiterating that she was no longer sorry for the picture of the severed head, she summed up her position by saying that she was standing up for others, because, “if it could happen to me, it could happen to you.”
