President Trump denounces Kathy Griffin's decapitation stunt: 'Sick!'

Kathy Griffin's controversial presidential commentary didn't go unnoticed by the president himself. 

In the wake of the comedienne's gory display photographed by Tyler Shields, which featured the "New Year's Eve Live" co-host holding a severed likeness of Donald Trump's head, the president took to Twitter early Wednesday morning to denounce her stunt.

UPDATE: CNN fires Kathy Griffin from New Year's Eve show 

"Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!" he wrote.

Griffin has already apologized for the polarizing turn of events, which was publicized online on Tuesday. In a video statement on social media, she said she had asked Shields to take down the photos. 

"I beg for your forgiveness," Griffin said in the 30-second clip. "I went too far."

It seems the controversy is far from blowing over, though. TMZ reports that the Secret Service is investigating the matter, and the site also posted stories about how Trump's son Barron was indeed traumatized by the images.
