LOS ANGELES Kathy Griffin says she went way too far when she appeared in a brief video Tuesday holding what looked like President Donald Trump's bloody, severed head.

Trump said earlier Griffin "should be ashamed of herself" for the photos showing her with a replica of a severed, bloodied head resembling his.

The Internet blow-back is growing against comedian Kathy Griffin after she posted a grisly tweet against President Donald Trump. I understand how it offends people.

"As a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing", Melania Trump said in a statement. I say ridiculous things, I make mistakes constantly.

Griffin initially defended the images, showing her lifting the head with a straight face, as an "artsy fartsy statement" mocking the commander in chief. "Sick!" Trump said on Twitter Wednesday. I will continue. I ask your forgiveness. She also promised to ask the photographer, Tyler Shields, to take down the photo.

Griffin apologized on Instagram on Tuesday for the photo that some say encouraged violence against the President. "We are evaluating our New Year's Eve coverage and have made no decisions at this point".

This had lead to increased security checks and a ban being placed on all prop weapons for the remainder of the convention. The Phoenix Comicon is being held at the Phoenix Convention Center in the downtown area of Arizona's capital.

"This is vile and wrong", Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, wrote on Twitter.

It is first comment about the photoshoot from the previous day that drew universal disgust, even from Griffin's famous friends, such as CNN New Year's Eve co-host Anderson Cooper.

Additionally, Route 66 Casino Hotel in New Mexico announced on Facebook it had canceled a performance by Griffin scheduled for July at the resort.

"We were shocked and disappointed to learn about the image Ms. Griffin shared today, it was deeply inappropriate and runs contrary to the core values our company stands for", said Edwards.

This isn't the first time Griffin has found herself in hot water.
