This Tweet Sums Up The Kathy Griffin Controversy

Comedian Kathy Griffin, who posed with a fake bloodied and severed head depicting U.S. President Donald Trump, will hold a news conference in Los Angeles on Friday to discuss her reasons for participating in the photo shoot.

Griffin stated during the press conference, "I am not afraid of Donald Trump".

While Kathy Griffin continues her sympathy crusade after weathering a storm of criticism for her bad Trump severed-head photo, sources say she's seething about how Anderson Cooper dropped her from his CNN New Year's Eve broadcast like a hot potato.

But the 56-year-old comedian insisted she will continue to make jokes about Mr Trump as she accused him, First Lady Melania and his children of "personally trying to ruin my life forever". "I'm only good at doing comedy one way". It's in your face.

Republican Party spokesman Mike Reed said, "Kathy Griffin's career was over long before she attempted to make a disgusting joke about decapitating the President", Reed said.

When ET's Kevin Frazier asked if she had spoken to Cooper since being let go from CNN, Griffin just cried and shook her head in silence.




Speaking on Friday, Griffin insisted it was a parody meant to address Mr Trump's remark a year ago that former Fox News presenter Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of wherever".

Following the coverage, Lovato took to Twitter and, without naming names, made a reference about people who put others down. He said Griffin is cooperating with the agency.

Her comments come after President Trump tweeted the image was upsetting his children, specifically his 11-year-old son Barron. "But the really wasn't a threat", Gore said. "I think it is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times - because that line is not real", Carrey said.

But in Friday's press conference she said, "it's not right", explaining that she's been getting explicit and detailed death threats.

"CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program", the CNN Public Relations account tweeted.

Gorin then addressed the apparent secret service investigation into the photoshoot, saying he expects it to be closed shortly and for Griffin to be cleared.
