Comedian Kathy Griffin is receiving graphic death threats resulting from her recent photo shoot with Tyler Shields where she is holding a bloodied, decapitated head. The man strongly resembled President Donald Trump.
Griffin posted the image on social media and the Trump-hive went nuts. During a recent press conference, she revealed she’s also losing job opportunities, shows have been cancelled.
“I am really nervous. I have never done a press conference. The president and his grown children and the first lady are personally trying to ruin my life forever … this president of all people is going to come after an obnoxious comedian. I am not good at being appropriate. I am going to make fun of him more now. I am not going to threaten him, I have no desire to harm him. They are using me as the shining object so no one talks about his FBI investigation. I’m not for everybody,. I am barely an acquired taste frankly. I’ve had everybody turn on me. And I just want to make people laugh. I am not laying down for this guy. It’s a good time to be a comedian but a scary time to be a citizen. This is America, and you shouldn’t have to die for it. The death threats I am getting are constant and they are detailed.
Her lawyer Lisa Bloom doesn’t believe Trump’s son, Barron, was affected in the manner as publicized.
Bloom says, “As a result of the first family bullying her, she has been vilified, getting death threats, fired from multiple jobs and had multiple events canceled.
Griffin stated during the press conference, “I am not afraid of Donald Trump. He is a bully.”
The Secret Service is reportedly investigating Griffin.
