Photographer Stands By Gruesome Shot Of 'Beheaded' Trump

Griffin was excoriated for the photograph of her holding a fake bloody, severed head that was supposed to be that of President Trump.

TMZ caught up with Shields in Los Angeles and asked him about the criticism the photoshoot received. "I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus". Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., whose district was in the map, Griffin tweeted, "Happy now Sarah?"

Shields also directed and conceptualized a violent video for rocker Marilyn Manson that involved, as the Daily Beast described it, "beheading a blond man in a dark suit and red power tie who resembles Donald Trump".

Griffin faced immediate backlash for her role in the photo shoot and issued a lengthy apology video hours after the pictures were released, where she admitted that she felt she'd "crossed the line".

Kathy Griffin was sacked from co-hosting New Year's Eve on CNN with Anderson Cooper this year, and even though they're longtime friends, Anderson is totally okay with seeing her go. Through additional social media posts, the comedian used this odd conspiracy theory as a platform to attack Donald Trump as a liar.

"CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's eve program", CNN tweeted.

For maybe the first time, I agree with President Donald Trump: Kathy Griffin's "joke" was sick.

Adding, "I don't know if it's amusing, but I don't think the joke is the problem".

"I told her there is no place in our discourse for an image like this".

"I am sure there is a line, I have just never seen it."
"I move the line, then I cross it; I went way too far".

"The image is too disturbing. I believe in forgiveness".

In that speech, he made another controversial remark that suggested violence toward Obama: "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year".
