"Ms. Griffin and Ms. Bloom will explain the true motivation behind the image, and respond to the bullying from the Trump family she has endured", the announcement noted.Griffin's attorney says she never imagined it would be misinterpreted as a threat of violence.Griffin repeated her apology for the picture during her press conference, but was also defiant: "I'm not afraid of Donald Trump, he's a bully".

"Kathy.baby.I've been there", Baldwin wrote before referencing his own political drama in 1998, when he joked about then-Representative Henry Hyde on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

"I'm not afraid of Trump", she said.


During the press conference, Kathy Griffin revealed that CNN's axing was hurtful.

"A sitting president of the United States and his grown children and the first lady are personally trying to ruin my life forever", Griffin said. The Secret Service has opened a criminal investigation into the post.

In addition to backlash from the public, Griffin has been fired by CNN from co-hosting their New Year's Eve special with Anderson Cooper.


Griffin came under fire earlier this week, when she shared a video of herself slowly raising a fake, gory severed head made to look like Trump. All seven of her upcoming comedy tour dates have also been canceled as of Friday. "I was wrong", she said. "And she apologized to the usual, 'If you're offended, I'm so sorry, I went too far.' She's not apologized to Trump or any of that".

Jim Carrey weighed in on the controversy to ET on Wednesday, declaring that comedians are the "last line of defense" against Trump. So I screwed up, ' Griffin stated though tears.

She claimed the US leader and his aides have called on anyone employing Griffin or booking her for gigs to fire the comic immediately. "Unlike these male artists, Kathy has endured the most powerful man in America and his family using their power to target her and her employers".


"As a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing", Melania Trump tweeted Wednesday.
