In a video posted on Twitter, she said: "I sincerely apologise. I'm just now seeing the reaction to these images.

"I'm a comic, I cross the line. I move the line, then I cross it. I went way too far. The image is too disturbing.

"I understand how it offends people. It wasn't funny, I get it.

"I beg for your forgiveness, I went too far. I made a mistake and I was wrong."

Ms Griffin had received criticism from both Donald Trump's son and Hillary Clinton's daughter.
