WATCH: Kathy Griffin Holds Press Conference to Address Controversial Photo

Kathy Griffin and is holding a press conference on Friday in order to react to the continued outrage over her controversial photoshoot with a likeness of President Trump‘s bloody, decapitated head.

Griffin has hired attorney Lisa Bloom, who announced that today’s event will “explain the true motivation behind the image, and respond to the bullying from the Trump family [Griffin] has endured.”

Griffin’s photoshoot became an instant source of controversy this week, and it was strongly condemned from figures on both sides of the political aisle. The backlash has cost Griffin celebrity endorsement deals, public events, and her New Years Eve co-hosting job with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

Griffin has apologized for the photo, though she still faces major condemnation pro-Trump people and others around the country. Trump himself blasted her photo as “sick,” and the president’s family has also slammed the comedienne over the controversy.
