** UPDATE **

Kathy Griffin apologizes for photo shoot with bloodied Trump mask, says she ‘went too far’

As reported by ABC News:

“I caption this ‘there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his … wherever,'” Griffin tweeted, referring to an exchange between Donald Trump and former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly during the primary season.

But in an attempt to appease those who were offended by the image, the controversial comedienne then tweeted, “OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever! I’m merely mocking the Mocker in Chief.”

It looks like the Secret Service has seen the photo and has responded on Twitter.

Kathy has apologized and asked Tyler Shields to take down the photo.  As of this time photographer Tyler Shields still has the photo public on social media.

Wow.  That’s all I can say about Tyler Shields latest photo session with Kathy Griffin.  Kathy loves attention and Tyler loves to push boundaries, so this photo seems to be a “perfect storm” of sorts.  It’s a strong political statement for sure… but is this taking it too far?

The last time I saw something so political and so graphic was…. well… another Tyler Shields art piece.  It wasn’t that long ago that we reported on the Marilyn Manson music video “Say10”.  In the music video, Directed by Tyler Shields, Donald Trump is AGAIN beheaded.

Maybe because of the very recent terrorist suicide bombing at the Manchester Arianna Grande concert, but I feel a bit uncomfortable with this image. On the other hand, isn’t that what good art is supposed to do?  Make you feel uncomfortable?  Make you question your feelings?  Start a conversation?

As fans of horror films, I would love to know what you think.  Is this in-your-face art making a statement?  Or is this just an attempt for two celebrities to hit the trending list on Facebook and Twitter?  Let us know in the comments of our Facebook post or by using the #iHorror on Twitter.

  1. Why was the FB post removed? Did they take it down or did iHorror buckle? Sure, she can post a picture and then make a non-apology, but the impact she wanted is already made. She then cried about Trump “breaking her”. It’s a desperate scramble to maintain some kind of relevance and appeal to reactionary screamers.
