Jim Carrey defends Kathy Griffin: 'Comedians are last voice of truth'

Jim Carrey is one of the few who have come to Kathy Griffin's defense after her controversial decapitated Trump mannequin picture she posted on social media. "I was wrong." She admitted that the image was "too disturbing" and "wasn't amusing", and that she understood "how it offends people".

Until this week, the comedian had managed to make a living inciting career-threatening controversy, then artfully flipping it into another cheeky bit. "It wasn't amusing. I get it", she said, adding that she was seeking to have the images taken down from social media. "I cross the line".

"I am sure there is a line, I have just never seen it."

"I'm just gonna go home and eat my ice cream and hide out", he told the TMZ cameraman as he pulled away from the grocery store.

Griffin's comedy approach trades on a self-deprecating streak (she brands herself as mired on the "D List" of show biz) while she targets celebs who are higher up the food chain.

It was December of previous year that comedian Rosie O'Donnell found herself apologizing to first lady Melania Trump for cyber-bullying Mrs. Trump's young son, Barron.

In a music video, Snoop Dogg shot a Trump-look-alike clown with a toy gun that released a flag that said "bang".

Cooper also issued a stern rebuke of the comedian on Twitter, writing,"For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in".

The question is: What ever made Griffin and photographer Tyler Shields think that it was acceptable, or even amusing, for Griffin to pose as an Islamic State terrorist would, holding what looked to be the hacked-off head of a USA president?

That brazen attitude accompanied numerous personal and professional spats Griffin has incited with her foul-mouth and propensity for insult.

CNN says it has cut ties with Kathy Griffin after she posted a video that showed her holding a likeness of President Donald Trump's severed head.

Griffin breached her contract in 2009 with the f-bomb incident while talking about a 6-year-old boy in the news. "We are evaluating our New Year's Eve coverage and have made no decisions at this point".

"The only thing is, you make art, you got to stand by it", he said.
