Kathy Griffin Responds to Sarah Palin's 'Bully' Comments
The battle continues. Kathy Griffin made fun of Sarah Palin's daughter, then Palin retaliated by calling Griffin a "50-year-old bully," and now Griffin is set to play a version of Palin on "Glee." And she has a few things to say, too.
First, Griffin wanted to teach Palin a lesson about comedians: "If you don't know the difference between a joke and real bullying, then are you going to call the ghost of Johnny Carson a bully? Are you going to call the entire cast of SNL a bully? The late night hosts? I mean, that's what comedians do. We make jokes about people, places and things," said the comedienne.
As far as Palin's kids being off-limits, Griffin believes she can make fun of whomever she wants to. Especially Willow Palin, whom Griffin believes to be a bully herself: "When her daughter Willow posted on her Facebook wall," said Griffin, "using the f-word, the pejorative for gay people, and I don't mean the fun four letter word that I use... When you're 16 you know you're not supposed to use that word. That's a word you really do kind of tie in with bullying, especially in the LGBT community."
"You can see if you look at that posting, that's not a joke," said Griffin.
