Comedian Kathy Griffin said she is no longer sorry for the controversial photo in which she posed with a fake severed Trump head covered in stage blood.
"I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was B.S., the whole thing got so blown out of proportion and I lost everybody," Griffin told the Seven Network in Australia about the incident in May. "Like, I had Chelsea Clinton tweeting against me. I had friends, Debra Messing from 'Will and Grace,' tweeting against me."
Griffin blamed "hardcore" Trump supporters for the fallout, which included her firing from CNN, and pushed back against assertions that even Democrats thought the shoot was out-of-line.
"Stop acting like my little picture is more important than talking about the actual atrocities that the president of the United States is committing," she retorted.
Griffin told another Australian network, the Nine Network, an impetus for her upcoming "Laugh Your Head Off" World Tour was that she was "currently shunned" in her own country.
"And I found out that it turns out the rest of the world can't stand Trump and they're not afraid of me and they don't even think that I am in ISIS," she said. "Because things got so crazy here that for the first time in the history of this country a sitting United States president used the Oval Office and the entire Department of Justice to use taxpayer dollars and put me, Kathy Griffin, under a two-month federal investigation instead of, I don't know, reading a book."
Griffin was exonerated from the U.S. Secret Service's investigation into the matter in July.
