Social media rushes to define Trump's 'covfefe' tweet

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that comedian Kathy Griffin should be "ashamed" after she posed for a photo shoot that featured her holding up a bloodied mask depicting the president. I'm a comic. I crossed the line.

Now, she says: "I sincerely apologize".

She said she is asking celebrity photographer Tyler Shields to take down the photo.

Route 66 Casino, a casino operated by Laguna Pueblo, announced late Tuesday on social media that the July 22 performance by Griffin was canceled. Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Trump's Democratic presidential election rival, was among the harshest critics, calling Griffin's photo "vile and wrong".

Griffin, a comic known for her abrasive style of humor, had apologized on Tuesday, conceding that the brief video, which she originally described as an "artsy-fartsy statement" mocking the commander in chief, was "too disturbing" and wasn't amusing.

"I think she did the right thing asking for forgiveness and acknowledging that this was a awful mistake, so I think she can", the Minnesota Democrat and former "Saturday Night Live" writer told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day". "The image is way too disturbing". It wasn't amusing. I get it.

Griffin then begged for the forgiveness from the audience and owned up her mistake.

Griffin had previously defended the picture, saying it was "nothing more than art", but now says she sees why it disturbed people.
