Kathy Griffin is one of many celebrities who have spoken out against Donald Trump, but this time, she may have taken it too far for some people. TMZ has released a photo from a shoot the comedian did with famed photog Tyler Shields, and it features Griffin holding the bloodied, detached head of POTUS.In a video from the shoot, Griffin jokes that she and Shields will have to move to Mexico because they will be put in federal prison after these photos are released.Sure enough, within hours of the photo surfacing Griffin issued a full apology. "I am sorry," she captioned a video of her saying in the end the photo wasn't funny. "I went too far. I was wrong." Regardless of how fast she apologized, there was still plenty of time for people on both ends of the political spectrum to slam Griffin's photoshoot. Even Squatty Potty's CEO Bobby Edwards, made an official statement:
"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. In response, Squatty Potty has suspended its ad campaign featuring Ms. Griffin. We have acted swiftly and decisively to demonstrate our commitment to a culture of decency, civility, and tolerance."

This is vile and wrong. It is never funny to joke about killing a president. https://t.co/zIiuKoMyFw— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) May 30, 2017
Disgusting but not surprising. This is the left today. They consider this acceptable. Imagine a conservative did this to Obama as POTUS? https://t.co/QdghcbIjS7— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) May 30, 2017
