Republicans and Democrats agree: Kathy Griffin did something disgusting.

Griffin - who you might know from, um, Suddenly Susan and reality shows I guess?- posed in a blue dress with the fake, decapitated head of Donald Trump in a photo.

It's gross. Seriously, if you're eating something right now, look away. OK, here's the photo, via TMZ:

There are plenty of other tweets, too, but it's a toxic cesspool that pretty much boils down to "SEE THIS IS LIBERAL HATE" and "TRUMP SUPPORTERS BASICALLY DID THE SAME THING TO OBAMA."

This sums it up:

Griffin responded to the whole thing with a reference to a Trump comment about NBC (and former Fox News) host Megyn Kelly.

2/ OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever! I'm merely mocking the Mocker in Chief.

And so this stupid year rolls on.

Updated 8:04 PM ET:

Kathy Griffin issued an apology on Twitter.

"I sincerely apologise," she said in a video. "I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people."

She then said she was asking the photographer to take it down. "I made a mistake and I was wrong."
