Comedian Kathy Griffin recently posed for a photo shoot holding a bloody mask-head made in the likeness of President Donald Trump, and the video footage is somewhat shocking – as it was intended to be.
According to TMZ, Griffin joked with photographer Tyler Shields that the two of them would have to move to Mexico in fear of imprisonment once the images were released.
“Kathy and I are friends and we worked together before, so when we started doing this shoot, she said, ‘I’d love to do something political. I’d love to make a statement,’ ” Shields told Fox News. “We kind of figured out what would be the best image to make out of that.”
Shields said he understands that the images and video, which he describes as art, will be offensive to some people.
