Griffin, 56, who had co-hosted CNN's annual New Year's Eve coverage for the last decade, apologized on Tuesday and said she had asked the celebrity photographer Tyler Shields to remove the picture from the internet. She added that she is taking the image down from her social media accounts and will be asking the photographer to do the same. Hours later, Griffin attempted to clean up the damage by apologizing, saying she was wrong and went too far.
Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., said on MSNBC that he condemns Griffin's image and told her, a friend, that the image doesn't belong in American political discourse. The image is too disturbing; I understand how it offends people.
Late Tuesday, the network had called Griffin's photos "disgusting and offensive", according to a statement from a CNN spokesperson.

The first video showed a straight-faced Griffin slowly lifting the bloody head. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. "And then soon after, she made a very fulsome apology and asked - begged for forgiveness", Franken said.
