Kathy Griffin 'no longer sorry' about Trump severed head controversy

Kathy Griffin says she is not sorry anymore for posting a controversial photo posing with a fake decapitated head resembling President Trump.

“I am no longer sorry," Griffin told Seven Network in Australia. "The whole outrage was B.S., the whole thing got so blown out of proportion and I lost everybody."

Griffin said many people criticized her after the photo on Twitter, including former first daughter Chelsea Clinton and actress Debra Messing.

"I have been through the mill," she said.

And she said it had hurt her livelihood, costing her not only her gig hosting New Year’s Eve on CNN, but also her comedy tour, which was canceled "because every single theater got all these death threats."

"I mean, these Trump fans, they're hardcore," she said. 

Griffin said the focus should be on Trump’s actions.

“Stop acting like my little picture is more important than talking about the actual atrocities that the president of the United States is committing,” she said.

Griffin earlier this year sparked widespread outrage after posing with the fake decapitated head. She apologized at the time.

“I sincerely apologize,” Griffin said in a video on Twitter. “I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny. I get it. I made a mistake and I was wrong.”

During a press conference in June, she claimed she had been bullied by Trump over the photo and accused the first family of "personally trying to ruin [her] life forever."

The president went after Griffin in response to the photo, saying she should be "ashamed."

In the fallout over the photo, Griffin had multiple shows canceled and was fired from her position as a host of CNN's New Year's Eve coverage.
