Earlier today, comedian Kathy Griffin held a press conference to address the backlash she’s faced over her graphic photo featuring a model of President Donald Trump’s severed head. Following the image’s release earlier this week, Griffin faced widespread outrage — including condemnation from the Trump family — which resulted in her losing her CNN New Year’s Eve hosting gig.

Griffin claimed that she has received death threats over the photo while exclaiming that Trump had broken her, killing her career in the process.
