Kathy Griffin responds to Sarah Palin calling her a bully

The back-and-forth between Sarah Palin and Kathy Griffin isn't over yet. The comedian has fired back in response to Palin calling her an "adult bully."

Griffin, who hasn't been shy about lobbing jokes at the Palin clan and will play a Palin-esque character in an upcoming episode of "Glee," "can do anything to me or say anything about me, because you know, she's kind of this — she's a 50-year-old adult bully, really, is what she is," Palin told Fox News earlier this month. "Kind of a has-been comedian, and she can do those things to me."

But Griffin, who's invited Palin to her Broadway show currently playing at the Belasco theater, told ABC News that she doesn't think Palin really knows what bullying means.

"If you think a comedian is a bully, then what that tells me is you've never been bullied," Griffin said. "If that's your idea, like a joke is bullying somebody...that's very different."

Griffin went on, "To throw that word around — when I do my work with the LGBT community, I'm talking about the guy from Rutgers." (Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers University student, committed suicide last fall after two other Rutgers students allegedly videotaped a sexual encounter between him and another man and posted it online.)

"I'm talking about the real stuff," Griffin said. "She's playing a different game."

    Obama and his mate are bullies just like Kathy G. They try to bully Palin so she won't tell the truth about them, that they are just phonies and have always been phonies and that's why they take so many vacations, to escape their responsibilities. The leftist Zombies are doing their jobs by bashing Palin. I guess Daddy Soros is paying them by the word.

    You go, Kathy! Palin is the bully, she bullies President and Mrs. Obama! Palin is a low class idiot who puts herself and her family on display and dares anyone to say anything about them.

    Palin calling someone a bully? That's a laugh! To Sarah, a bully is ANYONE who disagrees or says anything in opposition to or critical of anyone who is a Palin or on Sarah's approved list. Sarah cries bully like the little boy who cried WOLF.

    Griffin doesn't always tickle my funny bone, and I don't always agree with her, but the USA Bully-of-the-Year award is Sarah who is, IMO, just nasty, going for the gonads, destructive creature.

    I once saw Griffin without makeup...OMG OMG!! That is one UGLY bee-ach! She couldn't make it as a comedian so she had to try and make it with outrageous stunts. She is more of a stunt woman than a comedian. She relies on degrading language and acts to further her career with the extreme left who hate Palin. Otherwise, she has no audience.

    Griffin is not a has been – she is more of a wanna be & never was celibrity – however, she does have intellgent writers who do come up with material that is thought provoking. Palin is on the other hand way out of her league on all fronts and is truly semi brain dead – therefore, in this case I do belive that Kathy does have the upper hand over Palin. It's as if an educated school teacher (Kathy) were talking down to a mentally challenged child (Palin)

    I used to like Kathy Griffin, but when she did the second season of her reality show, it sucked. All she talked about was "penis'". She seemed to have penis envy. Then when I was watching and her assitant started to choke and her Mom says Kathy get him some water she refused. Which showed her true selfish personality.

    FYI, if your a comedian, you have every right to say what you want. Sarah Palin's daughter should never have said the F word. If any of my three daughter's ever say that, they're getting a whooping because that is bullying. Again if your a politician, then your fair game for the media, and to be honest, she talks about family values, she should have taught bristol to keep a nickel between her knees and keep them closed till she got married. Not one of my daughters were conceived out of wedlock and that's family values.

    Palin's comments towards this commedian indicate that Palin has no sense of humor. Her comments also indicate that she is a control freak and therefore unfit to lead anything. Nevertheless, she has a nice body.

      Antonius: If Kathy Griffin is just being a comedien, why doesn't she insult Obama as much as she does Palin. Sarah Palin has to fight back when members of the far Left attack her. The far Left and their friends the media, have been relentless with their barrage of Sarah. It seems to be the tactic of Obama, the media, and all of the far Left that when someone has effective, true arguments about where the far Left is incorrect or their policies cause more harm than good, that all of the arms of the far Left attack the person relentlessly in an attempt to destroy the person.

      Kathy Griffin is not a comedien, she is a rabid, far Left, attack dog.

    News flash to Griffin. Name calling and verbal insults are the most common forms of bullying. One thing that separates good comedians from bad comedians is the ability to make people laugh without putting other people down i.e laughing at the expense of someone. I'm no Palin fan, but I agree with her here. Griffin has just been verbally insulting her family for the past year and it's getting to be borderline abusive.

    Ok a few thoughts:
    1. Kathy griffin IS Andy Dick in drag (notice how they never appear together)
    2. Sarah Palin stopped being a serious politician when she started doing reality TV.
    3. SPs "bully" comments take away from real bully issues in the world today. Exposing her children to the media is her own fault and she has to take the good and the bad. Every president with kids in the white house has had to.deal with bad kid press, either through comedy or just plain reporting. You can't have your cake and eat it too.
    4. SP makes for good sound bites, but there is nothing viable or substantial in her message other than if your for her your great and she has all the time in the world for you. And if your against her your just a bully, media with an agenda, a socialist, or not a grizzly mom.
    Why don't they both do us a favor and either have a ky jelly bikini wrestling match (KG won't go for it because her Andy Dickness will be exposed) or just agree to disagree and move on

    Palin is a knob. Her kids are living proof that there isn't a diplomatic bone in that family. You're a public figure whether you deserve to be or not and that automatically signs you up for the fisheye lens. Stop whining, actually do something worth talking about, and you decrease your chances of being comedian fodder. Frankly Palin reminds me of a scared little girl trying to act tough while playing a big boys game. Hillarious. She should really leave politics and just join a quilting bee or something. Also Kathy Griffin is awesome. She says the things that people only dare think about.

    Let's be honest: Palin likes to pretend she knows what words mean. Bullying is a variety of negative acts carried out repeatedly over time. It involves a real or perceived imbalance of power, with a more powerful person or group attacking those who are less powerful. OBVIOUSLY, that's not what's going on here, regardless of whether you like Kathy Griffin OR Sarah Palin.

    Kathy is a bully. What 50 year old starts picking on a 16 year old and says it will be her mission to take this kid down? She reminds me of the woman that tormented her daughter's classmate on line and the kid committed suicide. Like Kathy -she thought her nasty remarks were harmeless. Now to say 'don't throw around that word lightly' is a joke. Kathy Giffird is a bully and in typical bully fashion, she only has balls when being a bully but doesn't have the balls to apologise and admit she is wrong. She stepped over the line. Palin's kid said the wrong thing as most kids do – let HER PARENTS deal with her. Also – I saw 'Kathy's message' when that kid committed suicide she mentioned, , she implied 'the right' was a fault..Kathy what planet are you on..kids don't care about politics, I live in Mass where everyone is practically a democrate and the kids are just as bad there as anywhere else. That little Irish girl committed suicide here in left leaning Mass due to bulling. I am not a fan of Palin but clearly, Kathy is an ass and it's time she goes away.

    Kathy has no talent. It is harder to creat then destroy. The comedy of sarcasm and tearing other people down is not a skill, it's an easily replicated formula. I think Kathy is just jealous, as her womb shrivels and dries up and she has to date people like that hedgehog from Microsoft, she's forced to reflect on a life that has produced nothing of value with no legacy. No wonder she must revert to sarcasm humor that is a step above "potty talk" in it's intellectual depth. She a jealous outsider looking in, watching those with actual talent accomplish real things in the world.

    Sarah Palin prances her brats out in public for her own "folksy" poltical agenda. Kathy is not top tier comedy, nonetheless she is smart and ocassionally funny. Palin on the other hand is making dumb fashionable. Her brats are following suit with lack of education and babies before 18. Classy group. NOT!!!!!!

    Wow! Finally someone on here–Suzi Powers–who understands what a bully is. Kathy Griffin, through her comedy, gives a voice to groups who are often marginalized by society. Can you say that for Sarah Palin? She has a son with Down's Syndrome–one would think that she would be an advocate for people with DS and not parading him around like a prop. Kathy G. just did what more people in society need to do, and that is point out bad behavior when it happens. As is evident from this situation, not too many of you have the backbone to do what is right.

    I think Kathy's history speaks for itself. She has been an avocate of supporting the troops, Gays,women and basic truths. That's what is funny about people calling her a "bully". "Bully's" go after people that can't help themselves and are fearful, what the bully feels is the weakest link. Kathy states truths about some very powerful people, she is willing to take the heat.. I respect her for many things and this is one of them. I respect her candor but guess what? she is also a comedian, she makes me laugh. Thanks Kath...

      Kathy is hilarious. Comedians make fun of people. Everyone's fair game. Especially a nasty little twirp kid that uses derogatory language. Kids (and I use the word 'kid' loosely, a sixteen year old is a young adult and accountable for their actions) SHOULD be shamed by society when they pull sh!t like this. When I was in middle school, kids that threw around the n word and f word in a nasty demeaning sense got taken out behind the school and whooped. While I don't condone violence, a clear message should be sent that this is NOT acceptable behavior.

    Does anyone know WHY she is targeting Palin's 16 year old daughter? It's because her daughter called someone an F word that is a derogatory term for gay. Kathy being a huge supporter of gay rights didn't like it so she is going after her. Most of these posts make it sound like Griffin just decided to go after Palin's daughter for no reason. Palin's kids should know they have to be careful about what they say since their mom wants to seem to keep the family in the public eye as long as possible.

She ( Palin) tried to get the HARRY POTTER books banned from her library and then tried to get the librarian fired when the plan didnt work. Stand up comedy is the last bastion of free speech in this country and is nessesary to provide social commentary.

    I dont see Palin going after HANNIETY – LIMBAUGH or COULTER. Hmmmmm...seems a bit hypocritical. At least Kathy is funny and at the same time self deprecating. Griffin is at least able to make fun of herself...something the self righteous Palin would no nothing about. It was clear on her appearance on SNL – She has no sense of humor.

Yes there are people who think she's great, but they're like the dim-witted dorks of the school. And if her kids are getting picked on, she has no one to blame but herself because she has selfishly put them in the limelight without concern for their best interests. She has view of herself that is completely disproportionate with reality and with her own abilities. She's a walking punchline but she just doesn't get it. Delusions of grandeur.

    It's one thing for griffin to be a "bully" because of what she says and it's another thing for a politician to be a bully. Words really don't hurt people but legislation does. The kind of bullying the right wing politicians apply is longer lasting and causes immeasurable hardships to those people these discriminatory laws affect.

      Kathy makes fun of everyone not just the Palins. He Palin material is probably 1% of her material. The palins just think they are the center of the universe. I don't always think Kathy's jokes are funny, but Palin's supporters are acting like she only talks about Palin and that indeed is another Joke.

    Not one person on this forum knows anything with regard to my political leanings, so I'm not sure how I became a "Palinbot." (A type of comical namecalling/bullying I suppose). I do believe that Sarah Palin is a political figure and should expect to have political jokes aimed her way. It's an entirely different situation to purposefully target the children of political figures or celebrities. I have a great sense of humor and don't take life too seriously, but being a mother, I would take great offense if my child were targeted for the type of harassment that Kathy Griffin has dished out in the past.

      Perhaps it's because you jumped in to save sarah along with all the Palinbots ordered up by ms Palin's maids in waiting? You really are too silly, Palin uses the kids as props for her own advancement and money hunt making them all part of her demented shtick! Then she whines about people commenting. Get real Sarah.

    But Palin is the political version of Florence Foster Jenkins, the woman who was convinced she could sing, even coloratura, when in reality she was always ludicrously off-key and a-rhythmical. Call her up on your search engine and listen to her screeching – but she was sure she was a great talent...

      What relevance does Sarah Palins political asperations or abilities have to do with the an article that is about Kathy Griffin being a bully? Attacking somone personally, and not for their political views, is bullying plan and simple.

    After reading the quote that was posted in the article about Kathy Griffin doing work with the LGBT community, one would conclude that she thinks those are the only people bullied. Has she been present in the real world lately? Anyone, anywhere can be bullied and I think most people would consider taking personal shots at teenagers, regardless of what they say publicly, as bullying. I don't agree with most of what comes out of Sarah Palins mouth, but I am afraid I have to agree with her on this point.

      Oh Rapier, you're so clever !! I wish I was a know it all like you. Griffin has made a modest income being a Smart azz at the expense of others. That method of humor is humor in it's lowest form. Perhaps that is why it appeals to you ! Shove off.

    Interesting that a politician and potential Presidential candidate responds to a comedian? It does kinda make sense because the right uses "comedians and entertainers" all of the time to deliver their hate-speak. How many times have Limbaugh and Beck been identified as "entertainers"...they are bullies as well.

    Griffin epitomizes the saying "Beauty is only skin deep butt-ugly is clear to the bone". Griffin goes out of her way to exhibit what a truly ugly and nasty person she is.

      I agree that words can be bullying. But Sarah is guilty of this same behavior all the time, so its pretty hypocritical of her to call out Kathy.

    Bullies use jokes all the time to make fun of other people. That is still bullying.
    Adult bullies who use jokes to to make fun of children and their families is highly offensive bullying in my book.

      Oh, please. Tell Palin to stop unfairly targeting Michelle Obama (NOT the president). That's bullying. Also, tell Ms. Palin to remove the bunch from her panties and MAN UP. She had to know that when she ran for vice president with a 16 year old knocked up daughter, people were going to make a few jokes.

      Wow seriously. Politicians are the biggest bullies. Look at what just happened in Wisconsin, you can't tell me that wasn't being a bully. Sarah Palin had her 15 mins already. Both Palin and Griffin are trying to get their 15 mins back. Palin is begging to be relevant. She's never been relevant despite thinking she was. Kathy Griffin can be funny sometimes. Sarah Palin just needs to go away and leave the US alone.

      Bristol Palin is not a child. And she has put helsef in the public eye. She'll give interviews when it suits her, and appear on reality TV. She is fair game to be mocked by comedians.

      Her situation is very different from a teen or kid who is tormented by peers.

      Bullying takes many different shapes. It can be physical or verbal. I don't remember Sarah Palin making a big deal when her daughter Willow posted gay slurs on her Facebook page? Palin loves to play the victim when she sees an opportunity to do so, and stills likes to throw the jabs at others. Don't dish it out, if you can't take it.
