The controversial photos, published online Tuesday, show Griffin holding a severed bloody head that looks like President Donald Trump.

PRESIDENT Trump's 11-year-old son Barron screamed with panic seeing a picture of a decapitated head he thought was his father, TMZ reports. Griffin had co-hosted the live special every year with Anderson Cooper since 2007.

"I sincerely apologize. I am just now seeing the reaction of these images", the 56-year-old comedian and reality TV star said of the picture. She and photographer Tyler Shields got together for a photo shoot that was meant to spark controversy, and they sparked far more than they had expected.

The network said in a statement, "CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program".

"Unfortunately, due to recent actions for which she has publicly apologized, we have received hundreds of angry and threatening emails and phone calls including threats to the Vets Hall building and our community", Baker said.

"I'm a comic", said Griffin, a frequent Trump critic.

In a second tweet, she added: "OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever! It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate", Cooper wrote, also in a tweet. Even though 53 percent of Americans likewise disapprove of the president's job performance, according to Gallup, most people across the political divide were horrified by Griffin's shocking photo yesterday.

Trump tweeted Wednesday morning that Griffin "should be ashamed of herself".

Among them was Chelsea Clinton, Bill and Hillary's daughter. "It wasn't amusing, I get it", Griffin said, adding that she had already asked Shields to take down the images from their shoot as well.

"I'm a comic", she said. "It wasn't amusing - I get it", she said in her Tuesday night apology. I beg for your forgiveness.

She said she was taking down the image and would ask the photographer, Tyler Shields, to take it down as well. We have acted swiftly and decisively to demonstrate our commitment to a culture of decency, civility, and tolerance. I've made a lot of mistakes in my career.

The instant backlash to the shockingly realistic photos made Griffin pull all evidence of the bloody stunt from the internet, issuing a video apology in its place. I will continue. I ask your forgiveness.
