Kathy Griffin set the Internet ablaze after she posed for a photoshoot where she holds the beheaded head of President Donald Trump.

Others say Trump is fair game, and all speech is free—including this. What do you think?
Did Kathy Griffin go too far with her fake beheading of President Trump?
Here's the behind-the-scenes video showing the photoshoot between Griffin and Shields.
TMZ is reporting Griffin posed with Trump's head for a photoshoot with Tyler Shields—who's known for his provocative and often controversial photo shoots. In the past, he's made photos of Hitler blowing his brains out, burnt a $15,000 Louis Vuitton trunk for the sake of "art," glamorized domestic violence, and took pictures of Lindsey Lohan covered in blood while holding a gun.
Critics say this photo shoot went too far. There are some things that are just off limits, and depicting the murder of a president is one of them. This country has a history of killing its presidents. In the current political climate, it's better to avoid these things entirely.
Others say this is art, whether you like it or not. Kathy Griffin and Tyler Shields have every right to make whatever kind of picture they want. It's like Snoop Dogg's video where he was shoots a clown-version of Donald Trump. You might not agree with it, but that doesn't matter—all speech is free.
Kathy Griffin is like licorice-flavored jello. I understand finding it repulsive but I don't get being incensed at it.— PopehatWitchHunt (@Popehat) May 30, 2017
