After left-wing comedian Kathy Griffin posed with a bludgeoned look-alike, severed head of President Donald Trump, social media has exploded with reactions to the controversial photo.
The image of Griffin, obtained by TMZ, depicts a gory, severed version of Trump’s head, as the former Fashion Police host stands with a cold expression on her face.
Now, social media users have gone online to express their disgust for the image:
"Get over the Kathy Griffin picture you ❄️ what's the matter? It's just a photo" – people hysterical over a peeing dog statue this morning

"Why don't more libs condemn Kathy Griffin?!”
Prob same reason more cons didn’t condemn Nugent? Bc they’re dumb & fodder for dumb outrage.

Griffin has forced her way into the mainstream, hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve special for the last few years with Anderson Cooper.
The comedian-turned-political spokesperson also enjoyed a long run on Andy Cohen’s Bravo network as the star of the reality show My Life on The D-List.
Representatives for CNN and Griffin did not immediately respond to Breitbart News’ request for comment.
