Amidst the outrage Kathy Griffin has received over her photo featuring a decapitated head of Donald Trump, it appears at least one person has forgiven her.
“And I believe in forgiveness,” he said in the clip below.
Minnesota GOP Chairman Jennifer Carnahan called out Franken and Griffin on Tuesday, asking the senator to cancel the Beverly Hills event on Facebook.
Franken said he “condemned” the photo and called Griffin to tell her why the photo was “unacceptable.”
“I think she’s a very talented comedian, but this was way, way, way, way over the line, and I told her so,” he said. “She not only asked for forgiveness but begged for forgiveness, and I believe in forgiveness.”
Griffin has been dropped from CNN’s New Year’s
“I crossed the line,” Griffin said in a video post via Twitter on Tuesday. “I went way too far. The image is too disturbing, I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny. I get it. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my career, I will continue. I ask for your forgiveness. Taking down the image.
“I’m going to ask the photographer to take down the image. And I beg for your forgiveness. I went too far. I made a mistake and I was wrong,” she continued.
President Trump has condemned the image as “sick.”
