On Tuesday, social media went crazy after Kathy Griffin was seen holding a decapitated head that resembled President Trump. Since the image was released, many celebrities have spoken out to condemn the image.

Now, even Melania Trump is speaking up about the image. Her comments come just hours after her husband tweeted that the image is deeply affecting their young son, Barron.

"As a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing," Melania Trump said in a statement. "When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it," she wrote. 

The image is so shocking we couldn't even show it. President Trump even took the time to address the issue.

President Trump is announcing that Barron is having a tough time after seeing someone pretending to decapitate his father. Can you imagine that? Seeing a picture of someone who thinks it's funny and good that your dad should be murdered?

"Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!" tweeted President Trump on Wednesday.

We can only imagine the tough times Barron is currently going through. His entire world has been turned upside down and everything he knows is changing. Barron is already set to move from his New York City home to Washington D.C. this year. He will leave behind everything he knows and all of the former friends he had in New York.

Griffin has since apologized for the image. The apology comes after critics and social media users blasted her and condemned the picture.

"I'm a comic. I cross the line. I move the line, then I cross it. I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn't funny. I get it," she wrote. "I beg for your forgiveness. I went too far," she said. "I made a mistake and I was wrong," she continued. 

Griffin also announced she has asked the photographer to take the image down. The photographer, Tyler Shields, is known for taking provocative shots.

Donald Trump Jr. spoke out about the image and called it "disgusting but not surprising." Even Chelsea Clinton did not see the humor in the picture. She called it "vile and wrong."

Griffin also spoke out after people said the image incited violence against President Trump and his administration.

"OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever!" Griffin initially wrote on Twitter. "I'm merely mocking the Mocker in Chief."

What do you think of this? Was she over the line? Should an image like this have any legal ramifications in today's world? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section of our Facebook page.
