Ricky Gervais reflects on Kathy Griffin’s controversial photo shoot
“Yes, what she did was bad art, but it was still just art,” the 55-year-old told Vulture. “There were people treating it like it was a real head. I’m screaming, ‘It wasn’t a f—–g president’s head!’ It was a visual statement. Her crime was that it was a bit crass and thoughtless, but who cares? That’s up to her. These are the same people that are screaming about freedom of speech, but then they shift the goalpost. They actually think this was a terror act.”
In response, the British comedian tweeted a photo of Trump’s two sons holding a dead leopard while on a hunting trip in Africa.
