Do you think this photo shoot went a little too far??
Comedian Kathy Griffin holds up a fake and bloody Donald Trump mask in a new photo-shoot and it’s causing a lot of controversy.
Tyler Shields is the photographer behind this and he told Buzzfeed News,
“Trump is the social media president. He is the most polarizing president we’ve ever had. With any type of person like that, art is going to be made about them.”
Kathy Griffin isn’t backing down either and is also defending the photo. She said on Twitter,
“OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever! I’m merely mocking the Mocker in Chief.”

Tyler Shields also shared a video of the behind the scenes with Kathy Griffin during the shoot.
*UPDATE* Kathy Griffin has apologized.
