Jim Carrey comes to Kathy Griffin's rescue

As you may already know, Kathy Griffin faced backlash for her disturbing picture in which she was shown holding a bloody mannequin head made to look like Donald Trump.

The venues were part of Griffin's Celebrity Run-In tour which will now feature five fewer stops amid strong criticism which came Griffin's way due to her photo holding the president's fake severed photo.

At the premiere of his new executive-produced Showtime comedy, I'm Dying Up Here, Carrey got a bit political with his speech to the audience, bringing up Kathy Griffin's scandal.

Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., said Thursday "it would be best" for embattled comedian Kathy Griffin to not attend a previously scheduled joint appearance they had planned for July.

"I was standing beside him with a club in my hand, and I was considering my options when I suddenly woke up", the actor said. "But I've taken up golf anyway". My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, have suffered a lot.

Theresa May tells Trump of 'disappointment' at US climate pact exit
Mr Trump's decision is seen as having struck a major blow against worldwide efforts to fight global warming . "And they won't be". It may be years, however, before the country can formally exit the deal, but Trump said he'll immediately halt implementation.

She added: "I think what is not acceptable is that people do things like what Kathy Griffin did, that there are people out there that would rather see our president fail rather than see our country succeed". I went too far. "I made a mistake and I was wrong", she said. I'm a comic. I crossed the line.

"Griffin, however, apologised for the video, which she originally described as an "artsy-fartsy statement" mocking the commander in chief". "I sincerely apologize. I am just now seeing the reaction to these images". She apologized and had the video removed.

Griffin, 56, a two-time Emmy-winning performer known for her deliberately provocative brand of humor, has appeared since 2007 as co-host of CNN's New Year's Eve broadcast from Times Square in NY with anchor Anderson Cooper, Reuters wrote. The image is too disturbing; I understand how it offends people. "I ask your forgiveness".

"I was wrong", Griffin tweeted Tuesday evening. Photographer Tyler Shields, who is behind the controversial Kathy Griffin image, has been accused of stealing other artist's ideas throughout his whole career.
