Kathy Griffin is taking heavy criticism for a photo shoot in which she is holding a bloodied mask of President Donald Trump.

The comedian posed for the gory photos during a session with notoriously edgy photographer Tyler Shields.

In a Twitter post late Tuesday, Griffin said the image "is too disturbing," and that "it wasn't funny."

The photo shoot has been condemned by many on social media, including Trump himself.

Donald Trump Jr. went on a social media tear, ripping Griffin for the tasteless photos.

According to TMZ, Griffin joked with Shields on set they would need to move to Mexico after the photos were released or fear imprisonment.

In her Twitter post on Tuesday, Griffin said she was going to "take down the image."

"I went too far and I was wrong," she said.

CNN announced Wednesday afternoon that it had released Griffin from her New Year's Eve show host position.
