"( CNN) Kathy Lion is safeguarding herself after attracting tough objection for taking part in an image shoot that featured her holding up a bloody head resembling Head of state Donald Trump.

On Tuesday, celebrity photographer Tyler Shields, understood for his provocative pictures, released pictures he performed with Lion that quickly came under attack from people on Twitter, including the president's boy, Donald Trump Jr, that called the images "revolting but not surprising."

Griffin was accused of encouraging violence against the Head of state.

" UNDOUBTEDLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my followers or others to any person, ever!" Lion composed on Twitter. "I'm simply mocking the Mocker in Principal."

2/ OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my followers or others to anyone, ever! I'm merely buffooning the Mocker in Chief.

— Kathy Lion (@kathygriffin) May 30, 2017
Inquiries were likewise increased about whether the pictures would certainly affect Lion's partnership with CNN. The comic is the longtime co-host of the network's annual New Year's Eve insurance coverage.

    This is the reason why Republicans have an excuse to make fun of the left. Free speech is free speech. Stand up for it and be consistent.

      Bizarro Grandpa idgaf what she does. Just think it’s an ugly graphic. But it doesn’t phase me one way or the other.

      Bizarro Grandpa Now you claim free speech, but you’d gone to the Trump’s rallies, Milo speeches, yelling hate speech? What a ironic situation.

    • Posted by Bizarro Grandpa, at Reply

      Roxe Karegow no. Why make that assumption? Milo has every right to say what he wants. Everyone does. That’s my whole point, dumbass.

      Leftists should point out how Griffin was culturally appropriating ISIS and Islam in general with the beheading video. LOL

      To you and the 60+ people who liked your comment: No,… one has absolutely nothing to do with the other. You might as well have asked, “Is this why egg yokes are yellow?”

    The problem is you get this quite a bit from the right. They’ll say, “What? Are you triggered? You can’t stop freedom of speech.”

    Though it is allowed under Freedom of Speech, “speech” like this (from the left AND right) is meant to irk and troll people.

    • Posted by Roxe Karegow, at Reply

      Seljuk Cuck that is hate speech. When you threat the life of a specific target. Like “kill all white people” or something like that.
      I remember some buthurt had claimed “deport’em all” was hate speech cos it hurt his feeling and it made him feel threatened.

    • Posted by Stephen Skinner, at Reply

      Excuse you, but threatening a President is not covered by free speech, and you should have known that.

    • Posted by Hal Jordan, at Reply

      Presidents die in media all of the time, Stephen. This is art. It’s protected by the First.

    Donald Trump slaughtered an 8-year-old American girl in Yemen, so this is an appropriate piece by Griffin.

    • Posted by Robert Parker, at Reply

      @Robert House Her father was part of terrorist group. Didn’t Trump say during the election he going to go after the family’s?

    • Posted by KELLSONIC, at Reply

      Really? In that case can you do me a favor? Can you make a photo of the you holding a head of Obama? Because the last I checked Obama killed many innocent children under his term of President.

    • Posted by Robert House, at Reply

      Robert Parker Their entire family, including her father, were US citizens and killing them via drone was unconstitutional. Yes he did, and that is a war crime.

      You love Kathy? For what? She is not funny

    • Posted by taragnor, at Reply

      The most shocking part of this whole thing is that Kathy Griffin is still considered relevant. Seriously how is she still around? One of the worst comedians ever. I guess I’m not surprised she’s pulling stupid publicity stunts, it’s not like her talent is drawing any attention.

    Imagine if a celebrity did this with Obama’s head . Racist/sexist would had been used so much . She only apologize because she know this is going to ruin her career more then lip syncing did to Ashley Simpson .

    Ana is right. I hate Trump too but that is going over the top. That is like advocating for his assassination.

    • Posted by Anthony, at Reply

      She is wrong, but lets face it a lot of us have thought about.

    • Posted by george maly, at Reply

      well spoken representative for the cause. Obama brought the great clean politics from Illinois to DC. Trump did the same crap……really what month is this and how many years have you had to endure under this oppression mae. Please keep up the great vision no matter how blurry it may be.

    Free Speech.

    • Posted by MetalDetroit, at Reply

      Apparently the Secret Service views it as a threat and not free speech since they just opened an investigation. Threats to the President are a felony.

    • Posted by Robert Forrester, at Reply

      It is no threat whatsoever. The SS routinely investigate these matters. It will go nowhere.

    • Posted by al 41057, at Reply

      Just like impeachment.

    “Don’t do that, it makes you look like that bad guys.”

    Exactly. This does absolutely nothing to help the anti-Trump cause, it only hurts us.

      Wasn’t the left the one who tells his supporters it’s alright to punch nazi? Result hundred of innocent people even teens and kids were assaulted and injured for no reasons?

      Achille, “Wasn’t the left the one who tells his supporters it’s alright to punch nazi? ”

      Interesting question. Let me know if you find any evidence to back up your question.

      from the Atlantic, Ted Nugent saying if Obama won the 2012 election he (Nugent) would be “dead or in jail”, 1 down, a ton others to go. In 2007 in a concert he said Obama could “suck on his machine gun”, He also said of democrats, “we need to ride into battle and CHOP THEIR HEADS OFF in November”. From the Daily Beast : “Ted Nugent wants to elect Trump and Kill Obama and Hillary”, is that enough of an example of a celebrity threatening a democrat? So spare me your bullshit.

    • Posted by ELI MARS, at Reply

      Not trying to move the goal post, fine, Ted is ONE. Let’s just keep in mind you’re not going to see or hear much from him on ABC, VH1, CNN, CC, HBO, NBC, MSNBC…heck, not even Fox News. Any of his future projects/recordings will have funds from independent label or straight out of his own butt.

    In the context, I can’t bring myself to be upset with what she did–at least until she wussed out. Trump is a horror. He deserves to be portrayed as such.

      No they have done it a few times, they have also chanted wanting dead cops hundreds of times, attacked people for being white. there are hundreds of videos of them doing this. You are in denial. BLM is a terrorist group.

    • Posted by Derek Halder, at Reply

      +Nyquillus Dillwad Also TYT is partnered with and funded AJ+, A “news” network owned and controlled by the Qatar royal family. The same royal family which owns most its nation as slaves and has been repeatably sanctioned for supporting ISIS by directly funding them. Cenk joined this partnership of his own free will…. he choose to earn money for slavery and isis…. why do you support that?
