Kathy Griffin Beheads Donald Trump In Gory New Photo From Shoot With Photographer Tyler Shields [UPDATED]

Kathy Griffin is always one to speak her mind and create controversy on any topic; especially politics. But this time, some are saying that Griffin has gone too far. The comedian is creating a stir on social media once again with newly released photos of a shoot she did with famed photographer, Tyler Shields, showing her holding up the bloodied head of President Donald Trump.

Even though the photos have just been released, Twitter is going absolutely crazy.

The Gateway Pundit writer Jim Hoft expressed his displeasure over the bloodied photo on his Twitter account.

“DISGUSTING: Washed Up Comedian Kathy Griffin Beheads Trump for Laughs – This is not Humor- This is Violent Fascism.”

Another Twitter user called on Griffin to be banned from television altogether.

“This is beyond disgusting and she should not be hired for any television appearances.”

Other users are lashing out against CNN, who employ Griffin.

“These are the sick, twisted people @CNN employs and empowers.”

And one Twitter user even seeks help from the FBI, saying that the comedian should be arrested for the photo.

“@fbi @secretservice #kathygriffin NEEDS TO BE ARRESTED 4 INCITING VIOLENT AGNST @potus @realDonaldTrump #maga”

The teaser video first appeared on famed photographer Tyler Shields’ Twitter account earlier today.

A few hours after he posted the teaser video, Shields went to Twitter and joked about the backlash over his photo.

“Friend text me this ‘I hear Tijuana is beautiful this time of year.'”

Kathy has never been a fan of Donald Trump. In fact, in an interview with The Huffington Post earlier this year, Griffin admitted that she never even thought that Donald Trump was relevant in the election.

“But you know, I have to tell these Trump stories because they are f****ng jaw-droppers! When you’re a fifty-five year old female stand up comic with no network support, no studio support, let me tell you, the cheese stands alone. I have been fighting sexism and ageism in particular, in stand up, that I just don’t give a f***. Even though he’s the Republican front runner, I will be telling these Donald Trump stories that I’ve been keeping in the coffer because nobody really cared. So no, never in my wildest dreams did I think that the guy I run into on this red carpet or this party, or the guy I sat next two at the f****ng Larry King Birthday Celebration is someone I would ever put in my act. Everyone knows he’s f****ng nuts and that was that.”

Other celebrities, including Donald Trump Jr, have also spoken out against Griffin over the gruesome photo.

“Disgusting but not surprising. This is the left today. They consider this acceptable. Imagine a conservative did this to Obama as POTUS?”

Will and Grace star Debra Messing compared Kathy’s actions to inappropriate Obama effigies.

“It wasn’t right when peoplel hung lynched Obama effigies, just as what Kathy Griffin did isn’t right now.”

Alyssa Milano also joined in, calling Griffin’s photo “inappropriate”.

“.@kathygriffin I’m sorry but that is totally inappropriate and so very offensive. And I have to believe you’re smart enough to know better.”

Even Chelsea Clinton had something to say.

“This is vile and wrong. It is never funny to joke about killing a president.”

Griffin has broken her silence over the controversial photos with back-to-back tweets.

In addition, the comedian posted a video on Facebook apologizing for taking things “too far”.
