LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kathy Griffin says she knew her new photo shoot with Tyler Shields would "make noise."

Griffin appears in a photo posted online Tuesday holding what looks like President Donald Trump's bloody, severed head. Many on Twitter called for the comedian to be jailed.

Griffin tells photographer Tyler Shields in a video on his Twitter page Tuesday that they will have to move to Mexico to avoid federal prison for their latest collaboration.

She described the project as an "artsy fartsy statement" on Instagram and says she does not condone causing harm to others.

Kathy Griffin says she went way too far when she appeared in a brief video Tuesday holding what looked like President Donald Trump's bloody, severed head.

The comic posted a video later Tuesday apologizing for the video image, saying it was "too disturbing" and wasn't funny.
