She set off a flurry of controversy after posing with a dummy version of President 's severed head back in 2017.

Kathy Griffin revealed that how the situation even made her mother think she think the worst of her while sitting down with Jimmy Kimmel to promote her new film Hell Of A Story during his Tuesday night show.

Asked if anyone 'really' thought the comic was a member of the trans-national terrorist group ISIS, she said: 'Yes! My mother!'

Now she has released a film - which was partly shot on her iPhone at the height of the scandal - in an effort to tell her side of the story.  

'You can be as offended by that photo all you want, that doesn't bother me at all,' she said during a chat with the Associated Press.

'But I want people to know I didn't break the law. If you take a photo like that, you didn't break the law. 

'I didn't violate the First Amendment in any way. If you take a photo like that, you didn't violate the First Amendment in any way.'

In the wake of the photo she also had to buy metal detectors because 'there were all kinds of incidents. A guy came at me
