Comedian Kathy Griffin found herself in career peril this week after posting a photo to Instagram of herself holding a mockup of the severed head of President Donald Trump.

Trump was incensed by the image…

…and CNN fired Griffin from her gig as the co-host of their New Years Eve coverage in response. Griffin, for her part, apologized:

But for fans of heavy metal band GWAR, who have been brutally murdering the effigies of U.S. presidents onstage for decades (and spraying the audience in with the blood spurting form their necks), the whole scandal was just old hat. When we brought it up on Twitter, Matt Miner, co-writer of the upcoming comic book GWAR: Orgasmageddon, pointed out that GWAR had a response of their own to the controversy:

In the video, GWAR bassist Beefcake the Mighty complains that Griffin stole the band's bit. "You think you're so shocking with your severed Trump head. I think you know where that came from. It came from GWAR, you twit!" Beefcake also teases a new album from the band, which he says they may reveal in the coming weeks. "If you want the original recipe head choppers, it's GWAR, human scum!"

GWAR will be touring on the Vans Warped Tour this Summer, and GWAR: Orgasmageddon #1 will be in stores next week, June 7.

For an encore, here's GWAR's fifth appearance on the AV Club's AV Undercover, wherein Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump do battle to a cover of AC/DC's If You Want Blood (You Got It) (spoiler alert: they both end up disemboweled):

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
