Kathy Griffin Holds Tearful Press Conference About Trump Family Bullying Her

"I screwed up", Griffin said.

Kathy Griffin is planning a Friday morning press conference to address "the true motivation" behind a controversial video released earlier this week.

Griffin offered a tearful apology shortly after the photo became public.

"Kathy did not forget that disgusting remark", the lawyer said, explaining that it prompted her to team up with a photographer to show "what it would look like if his own insults were turned on him".

She reiterated her apology in a tearful address Friday, saying the apology "absolutely stands" and that she "felt awful", but added, "I'm not afraid of Donald Trump, he's a bully".

Her comments come after President Trump tweeted the image was upsetting his children, specifically his 11-year-old son Barron.

Comedian Kathy Griffin is receiving graphic death threats resulting from her recent photo shoot with Tyler Shields where she is holding a bloodied, decapitated head.

Griffin said that she feels she is being targeted by Trump, but promises that she was not going to give up.

But speaking for the first time since, Griffin said: 'I'm going to make fun of The President and I'm going to make fun of him more now'. "I feel awful. I did not think people would try to murder me or mobilize other people to murder me. He is a bully", she said. "He picked the wrong redhead".

As CNN and other sources are reporting, Griffin held a news conference Friday, with her attorney, Lisa Bloom, to give the comedian's side of the story. "He broke me, he broke me, he broke me". "I would never want to hurt anyone, much less a child".

On "Hannity" tonight, Michelle Malkin ripped Kathy Griffin for her "crocodile tears" during the comedian's news conference after she posed with a likeness of President Donald Trump's severed head. She had hosted the cable news network's New Year's coverage with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper since 2007.

She's also hired a criminal defense attorney, Dmitry Gorin, in response to the alleged investigation from the Secret Service.

Griffin also accused Mr Trump and his family of trying to ruin her life, revealing she had faced death threats from supporters of the President over the photo.
