The Church of Satan disavowed any association with Kathy Griffin Wednesday in response to a tweet from blogger Mike Cernovich about Griffin’s anti-Trump photo shoot posing with a severed head.
“Please do not include us in this,” The Church of Satan tweeted after Cernovich claimed that CNN had not issued a statement about alleged “Satanic-ISIS death threats” made by Griffin.
The Church of Satan is one of many to denounce Griffin’s latest stunt. The company Squatty Potty has discontinued its series of advertisements featuring Griffin, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper called the photo shoot “disgusting and completely inappropriate,” and Trump said the photo had affected his son, Baron.
For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.

Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!

Griffin has since offered an apology, admitting she went “too far,” and “was wrong.” But the apology has not rescued her from hot waters. CNN issued a statement saying it found Griffin’s photo shoot “disgusting and offensive” and were re-evaluating their coverage of New Year’s Eve but had not yet reached a decision.

TMZ reported Griffin’s gruesome photo shoot has also made her a person of interest for the Secret Service.
