Comedian Kathy Griffin says that she has been welcomed abroad, but wishes she could go on a tour in the U.S. “without getting shot.”
“They were thrilled to have someone come over and make fun of Trump,” said Griffin, who recently finished up a 15-country world tour, during an interview with Politico published Wednesday.
“I wish I could tour in the U.S. without getting shot — I know I can’t. I was in the middle of a 50-city tour when the tweet happened. It was canceled in 24 hours.”
Griffin faced widespread backlash earlier this year after she posted a controversial photo posing with a fake decapitated head resembling President Trump.
The president at the time weighed in on the controversy, tweeting that Griffin should be “ashamed of herself” and that his children were having a “hard time” with it.
Griffin apologized but in the fallout had multiple shows canceled and was fired as co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage.
Griffin told Politico that Trump’s Twitter feed is the “greatest programming director ever.”
