Comedian Kathy Griffin says she's still facing backlash over a photo of her holding a fake severed head modeled to resemble President Donald Trump.

In a Youtube video, Griffin claims to now be on a "Hollywood blacklist" because of the May 2017 photo, and says she doesn't have any paid work waiting for her when she gets back from her stand-up tour abroad.

Griffin says she knows the photo "offended a lot of people," but added, "This wall of crap has never fallen on any woman in the history of America like it has on me."
