What she did was wrong. Period.
Why? Question mark.
Do you honestly believe she was sounding a call for the murder of Trump, by beheading or other means? Do we believe that people took it that way and it will inspire violence toward Trump and his supporters (who not coincidentally have actively encouraged violence toward their political enemies for years)?
Are we completely dismissing that she was making an on-the-nose visual statement about the fate that's historically befallen leaders, particularly during the French Revolution, who look to increase their already swollen wealth at the direct expense of the peasants?
Are all depictions of fictionalized, symbolic violence wrong, period?
Look, I don't really care about Kathy Griffin or her Instagram post. But the faux outrage over it is legitimately infuriating.
