While Kathy Griffin received backlash over a photograph she posted online, in which she held a bloody mask of President Donald Trump, the comedian is also getting support from a handful of celebrities. The latest to join the list of her supporters is Alec Baldwin, who backed Griffin in a series of tweets Friday.

Baldwin, who often impersonates the 70-year-old president on “Saturday Night Live,” recalled his experience of his 1998 joke on Republican politician Henry Hyde. Baldwin had suggested to stone Hyde to death and kill his family and children.

“Dear Kathy Griffin, Kathy... baby... I've been there. The whole Henry Hyde thing [with] Conan, where we bring out an oxygen mask at the end? a joke. That's what I thought. That's what we intended. No one walked out of the studio and said, "No! We're serious!" No one,” Baldwin wrote in the tweets.

“But all your gutless, weasels in the GOP insisted that I actually threatened Hyde. They played the victim beautifully. Kathy... f--- them. F--- them all. [no one] believes [you] meant [to] threaten Trump,” Baldwin continued. “Trump is such a senile idiot, all he has is Twitter fights. ignore him. Like the leaders of all the other countries in the world. Ignore him.”

Baldwin was not the only one offering support to Griffin. On Wednesday, Sen. Franken (D-Minnesota) said she could recover from the controversy.

“Kathy is a friend and she’s a terrific comedian, but this had no business being in our public discourse,” Franken told CNN. “And I talked to her. She has apologized… she actually begged for forgiveness and I believe in forgiveness. I think she did the right thing asking for forgiveness and acknowledging that this is a horrible mistake, so I think she can.”

Despite supporting her, Franken cancelled her invitation to an upcoming book event in Minnesota, where the comedian was scheduled to speak.

Actor Jamie Foxx also supported Griffin, saying sometimes comedians tend to “go beyond, past the line.”

"Listen, as comedians, sometimes you do go beyond, past the line," Foxx told Entertainment Tonight on Thursday. "I still love Kathy Griffin. She went past the line, she'll pay for it in the way she pays for it, and we'll go out and we'll laugh with her again."

On Thursday, television host Larry King said though Griffin’s photo was in “terrible taste,” he felt sorry for her.

“She’s my friend, she apologized, let it go. I wouldn’t have fired her, Ted Turner wouldn’t have fired her. They’re jumping all over her now… I would have kept her. It was a terrible mistake, no one feels sorrier than her, she apologized. CNN shouldn’t have let her go,” King told TMZ.

On the day Griffin apologized, fellow comedian Mike Lawrence wrote a post on Facebook, saying she should not have apologized for the photo because she knew would end up getting criticized.

“You know what you did and should own it. It wasn't a riff onstage or a joke you had done once or twice. It was a photo shoot. ... So live in it. Don't apologize,” Lawrence wrote.

Comedian Rosie O’Donnell also tweeted her support to Griffin on Wednesday.

Actor and comedian Jim Carrey told Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday: "I think it is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times — because that line is not real."

"If you step out into that spotlight and you're doing the crazy things that [Trump is] doing, we're the last line of defense. And really, the comedians are the last voice of truth in this whole thing. It's impossible to get away from it," Carrey added.

Tyler Shields, the photographer behind the controversial picture, told Fox News the image was meant to be an art. Shields added he was aware that the photograph could make some viewers uncomfortable.

“That’s what art is meant to do,” he said. “Some people look at it and they love it. Some people look at it and they hate it… I understand there are going to be people that hate this. It’s a very touchy subject… but this is not real. We didn’t kill anybody nor do I feel anybody should be killed. It’s no different from a movie. It just happens to be a still image.”

After pictures of the shoot were published May 30, Griffin apologized, saying she “went too far” and “crossed the line.”

“The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny. I get it. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my career. I will continue,” she said Wednesday.

However, problems did not cease for the 56-year-old. CNN terminated Griffin’s contract as a co-host of the network’s annual New Year’s Eve program. Following this, several venues associated with her Celebrity Run-In tour cancelled her shows.

On Friday, Griffin held a press conference saying she received death threats following the photo shoot and accused Trump of “personally trying to ruin my life forever.”

Her lawyer Lisa Bloom blamed Trump and his family of "using their power to target" Griffin.

"Kathy never imagined it could be misinterpreted as a threat of violence against Trump. That was never what she intended," Bloom said at the press conference.

Trump had said Griffin "should be ashamed of herself" for the photo shoot.
