Offers for print photo copies of Kathy Griffin holding up the fake, bloody severed head of President Donald Trump have exceeded $100,000, TMZ reported Thursday.
Artist and photographer Tyler Shields, who took the infamous photo, has reportedly received over 1,000 offers from people interested in buying a print of his controversial image. One art collector, the celebrity gossip site notes, offered Shields $150,000 for an original print.
Griffin’s photo sparked a national firestorm earlier this year. She was fired from CNN where she co-hosted the network’s annual New Year’s Eve broadcast, faced a social media-fueled boycott that led to her stand-up shows being canceled, and was the subject of a Secret Service investigation.
President Trump fired back at Griffin, tweeting that she “should be ashamed of herself” and that her photo had been difficult for his children, including his 11-year-old son, Barron.
