TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. - Amid the uproar over Kathy Griffin's video depicting President Donald Trump's severed head, one Michigan teen is reaching out to Trump's son.
Traverse City 14-year-old Evelyn Bostwick wrote a letter to Barron Trump after the video caused a nationwide controversy.
The President himself tweeted about the video on May 31, saying his "My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!"
"I just thought it was really uncool and she should know how to treat others and I thought she should've just kept it to herself,” Evelyn told WPBN.
Evelyn wrote: "Being hurtful to others just because you do not appreciate or like something they did is not okay. We know to treat others how we want to be treated,."
A message of support, from one child to another, hundreds of miles away.
"I just wanted him to let him know that other people in America were thinking about him and that it wasn't his fault that that lady did that,” said Evelyn.
The president's son, Donald Trump Jr, called the imagery "disgusting but not surprising."
Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Trump's one-time campaign rival Hillary Clinton, called the photo "vile and wrong."
"It is never funny to joke about killing a president," she wrote on Twitter.
Griffin was accused of encouraging violence against the President.
"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."
Questions were also raised about whether the photos would affect Griffin's relationship with CNN, for whom she works as part of the network's annual New Year's Eve coverage.
On Wednesday, CNN terminated its agreement with Griffin to appear on the annual program.
