Comedian Kathy Griffin addresses her controversial Trump tweet

Kathy Griffin is Beneath Contempt! She Should Apologize to the Trump Family in Person!

At a rambling press conference overnight, Griffin tearfully predicted her career is over and said Mr Trump "broke me".

She said: "I'm not laying down for this guy".

"The president, the first lady and the Secret Service have all made very clear their view on those thoughts", White House press secretary Sean Spicer said.

Griffin has insisted that the picture was meant to mock the president's demeaning comments in 2016 about then-Fox News host Megyn Kelly having "blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her - wherever".

Bloom said the comedian was contacted by the U.S. Secret Service and said she has retained a criminal lawyer. "You're assuming that everything that Trump says is true, and in fact, we know that everything Trump says is false", she said. She's also the person who referred to then-President-elect Trump as "President piece of sh*t".

"Kathy did not forget that disgusting remark", the lawyer said, explaining that it prompted her to team up with a photographer to show "what it would look like if his own insults were turned on him".

Bloom framed Griffin's stunt as a First Amendment performance piece and chided the president for treating the incident as yet another high-profile celebrity feud. She suggested that as a woman, she faced more intense backlash for her gestures than she would if she were a man.

"If you don't stand up, you get run over", Griffin said.

The Uptown Theatre's cancellation follows six other venues, including bergenPAC in New Jersey.

US Senator Al Franken (D-MN) dis-invited Griffin from an event promoting his new book, "Giant of the Senate".

Prior to the firing, Cooper had taken to Twitter and wrote: 'For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in.

He said what Griffin did "was inappropriate and not something that should be anywhere in our national discourse". It also cost her an endorsement deal with Squatty Potty.

Jim Carrey weighed in on the controversy to ET on Wednesday, declaring that comedians are the "last line of defense" against Trump.
