Is Kathy Griffin trying to join ISIS? UPDATE: OOPS! [photo and video]

Kathy Griffin has either lost her mind or is interviewing to become Jihadi John‘s replacement.

Griffin is known for her over-the-top attempts at humor but her latest publicity stunt may instead be a test of her sanity. The comedienne teamed up with celebrity photographer and director Tyler Shields to create some sort of video. Out of that project, they released a dark and twisted image that looks more like an ISIS recruitment poster than a publicity stunt. The photo shows Griffin staring into the camera with a deadpan look as she holds up a prop intended to be the bloody, disembodied head of President Donald Trump.

“Kathy is all about pushing the limits and she went above and beyond on this one. Now let’s just hope she stays out of jail,” a representative for Shields told HuffPost.

At a minimum, she and Shields should expect a visit from the Secret Service.

Update: The video has been taken down with the comment “This video has been removed by the user.”

Griffin warns that she won’t tell the audience what she and Tyler are up to doing indicating a larger project than just the photo. Later in the video, she and Tyler are reviewing the footage they have shot and agree that some point in the footage “is the jail moment.”

During the video, Kathy says “It’s ok because we’re going to go to prison – federal prison.” To which Shields says “yeah, yeah.”

At the end of the video, Griffin performs a ‘drop the mic’ with the fake Trump head.

If Kathy wants Jihadi John’s job, she’s going to need to dress a bit different, but otherwise, she looks the part. Oh, and Kathy, the U.S. military killed Jihadi John in 2015 – that comes with the job.

Update: Kathy Griffin Apologizes

Using Twitter, Kathy Griffin has apologized for what should have been obvious to anyone and was certainly obvious to everyone that reacted to it.

“I sincerely apologize,” Griffin said in a video apology. She said she “crossed the line” and is “just now” seeing the outpouring of negative reactions to the photo,” adding “The image is too disturbing.”

Now that apology might have come from pressure from many of her social media followers – or just one:
