First Lady Melania Trump on Wednesday joined the chorus of those condemning comedian Kathy Griffin for a photo shoot featuring a bloody, decapitated head that resembled President Donald Trump.

“As a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing,” Trump said in a statement.

“When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it,” she continued.

Griffin’s photo, which was released Tuesday afternoon, immediately sparked a backlash among both conservative and liberal critics.

Griffin posted a video apology on social media Tuesday evening, saying she “went way too far” and would ask photographer Tyler Shields to take the image down.

“I sincerely apologize,” Griffin said. “I made a mistake and I was wrong.”

Trump himself took to Twitter early Wednesday morning to condemn the photo:
