JUST IN: Secret Service Delivers BAD NEWS to Kathy Griffin

by Cassy Fiano | May 31, 2017 1:08 pm

D-list “celebrity” Kathy Griffin, for some insane reason, thought it would be a good idea to publish a photo of herself holding a bloody, dismembered head that resembled Donald Trump. There was immediate outrage surrounding the photo, even from liberals, and Griffin must have realized that she messed up, big time. She apologized, but it’s too late — the Secret Service has apparently opened an investigation[1].


Anything that could be perceived as a threat to the President is going to get the attention of the Secret Service, of course. Griffin’s photo could obviously be seen as encouraging violence against Trump, so it didn’t take long for the agency to respond.

Sources in law enforcement have confirmed that the Secret Service has opened an investigation into “the circumstances surrounding the photo shoot.” The photo shoot featured Griffin, but behind the lens was photographer Tyler Shields and both Shields and Griffin will likely be interviewed by the Secret Service.

After the photo was released online, social media users bombarded the Secret Service with messages urging them to respond. And the Secret Service seemed to acknowledge them in a cryptic message:

They then released a longer statement, which didn’t mention Griffin by name, but seemed directed at her regardless. “The U.S. Secret Service has a critical mission. It is always unfortunate when people make statements that could be perceived as threats,” the statement read. “We don’t have the luxury of knowing a person’s intent. Each alleged or perceived threat has to be investigated thoroughly which taxes Secret Service manpower and resources that could be utilized elsewhere.”

Griffin quickly apologized after the backlash reached a fever pitch, but it may be too late for “I’m sorry” now. The Secret Service likely won’t care how sorry she is — and neither does anyone else.
