The United States Secret Service opened an investigation for Kathy Griffin, according to the report. The subject of this investigation is the photo where Kathy is holding the face, bloody decapitated head resembling with the face of our President Trump.
“The circumstances surrounding the photo shoot” is the official reason that the Secret Service launched this investigation according to some of the Law enforcement officers.
Many users from the social media sent this photo immediately to the Secret Service, which the federal agency obviously confirmed it.
Immediately after the agency tweeted “ON IT!! Secret Service has a robust protective intelligence division that monitors open source reporting & social media to evaluate threats”.
In addition they tweeted “Threats made against Secret Service protectees receive the highest priority of all of our investigations. #ProtectionNeverRests.”
The Secret Service also stated that they don’t have the luxury of knowing a person’s intent. Each threat needs to be analyzed and investigated thoroughly which takes a lot of Secret Service manpower and resources that could be put in other use.
“The U.S Secret Service has a critical mission. It is always unfortunate when people make statements that could be perceived as threats,” they stated.
President Trump immediately after seeing the photo this Wednesday had a reaction on Tweeter. “Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself” he responded to her photo. Especially he stated that he had a difficult time explaining to his children what that photo means…
After all this Kathy Griffin made a video on Instagram. She said “I sincerely apologize. I am just now seeing the reaction of this images. I ask your forgiveness. Taking down the image. Going to ask the photographer to take down the image.”
She didn’t officially apologize in person to our President and his family but she did say (joked) that she might need to move to Mexico because of the negative reaction to the photo.
