The controversy over Kathy Griffin’s gory photo showing the fake, severed head of President Donald Trump will apparently never end. More than a month after the photo was released, the comedian is reportedly still under investigation.
Griffin “has been interviewed by the Secret Service, in-person, for over an hour,” political journalist Yashar Ali reported in a tweet posted Monday. He added that the investigation is “still not closed.”
HuffPost reached out to Griffin’s team for confirmation but did not immediately receive a response.
After releasing the disturbing photo, Griffin faced an enormous amount of backlash from both sides of the aisle. She lost various jobs, including her New Year’s Eve hosting gig with CNN, and also received death threats.
The comedian quickly apologized. Yet in a June 2 press conference held to explain her actions, she accused the Trump family of trying to ruin her life, calling the president a bully and stating that she would not back away from her criticism.
“You know what, I’m going to make fun of him more now,” she said at the time.
For proof Griffin is following through on that promise, just look at her Twitter feed.
