InfoWars is So Outraged by Kathy Griffin Photo They Are Now Selling T-Shirts Of It
InfoWars has provided breathless coverage of the Kathy Griffin’s (let’s say, ill-advised) decision to pose for a photoshoot with a model of President Donald Trump’s severed head.
The outrage was so strong at Alex Jones’s right-wing blog/conspiracy factory that the website has even begun selling t-shirts emblazoned with the Kathy Griffin photo.
Griffin came under intense, bi-partisan fire after a picture of a photoshoot with celebrity photographer Tyler Shields was posted on TMZ. The photo featured Griffin — a comedian and former host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve program with Anderson Cooper — holding up a facsimile of Trump’s bloodied head.
Conservative media has maintained their outrage dialed up to 11 since the photoshoot was teased, assigning the stunt to a broader trend of left-wing violence, and expressing outrage that Trump’s son Barron was forced to witness a photo of his father decapitated.
