Kathy Griffin's next target: Willow Palin

Kathy Griffin has decided to lay off of Bristol Palin after getting booed for making fun of her weight at the December VH1 "Divas Salute the Troops" event. Instead, the 50-year-old comedian is focusing on Palin's kid sister Willow.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, CNN New Year's Eve special co-host Griffin says that besides "going to church more," she intends to take on Sarah Palin's 16-year-old daughter in 2011.

"I've already gone for Sarah, Todd and Bristol obviously," explained Griffin. "But I think it's Willow's year to go down."

Griffin told the publication that she's primarily targeting the teen because of homophobic comments she made on Facebook back in November.

"You don't throw around the f-word without hearing from me about it," said Griffin.

    Hey, guys, it was a JOKE! It might be a tasteless joke, but it's still just a joke.

    Kathy didn't actually attack a 16 year old, she made a joke that she was going to. If she said the same thing about a 2 year old, maybe people would have recognized it as a joke a little easier.

    Don't take a comment made by a comedien quite so seriously. If you don't think Kathy's funny, the don't watch her show or buy her DVD.

    Anyone who throws the "f word that rhymes with hag" around in a public place is going to have people hating on her. Hopefully, this is a lesson to Willow, whose parents might be a little too busy with their own lives to parent her very well right now.

    BUT if Kathy were to actually start attacking a 16 year old, then I will be the first to declare she is VERY wrong.

    How about we start with the obvious ... adults should not bully kids! Ahem, Kathy Griffin should be
    ashamed for bullying Willow Palin (which she announced for publicity purposes) and for bullying
    Bristol Palin. GLBT where are you?! It's not just gay teens that shouldn't be bullied! How about we
    protect all our kids! Boycott the bully Griffin!

    When Sarah Palin stepped into the limelight she brought her kids in as well. It's a shame they didn't know how to behave in public. Willow's behaviour brought this on. Social networks have this drawback. My children aren't allowed on Facebook or Twitter for these reasons.

    IMO Sarah Palin is not the good mother she claims. She's failed in critical ways to look after and supervise her children. Personally, I'd respect her more if she stayed home and looked after her special needs child. I did and I do look after my own child with special needs.

    While I don't condone Willow Palin's comments. I consider them to be just an emotional, immature reaction to someone attacking her mother. Willow is only 16, and part of a generation that tends to spill out every emotion, without any thought, onto the internet. I later read her apology, and I chose to believe that she will grow and learn from this experience. I cannot say the same for Kathy Griffin. I've never found "attack humor" to be funny, no matter who the subject is. It is a form of verbal abuse, where an audience laughs, either out of relief that they're not the subject being humiliated, or out of envy and a sense that it's okay to hate someone. Ms. Griffin, you are 50. Ms. Palin is 16. You should know better.

When you are a celeb or related to one, you must tread lightly and be more careful about what you say. It is the reality. I am sure Kathy's attention to Willow will give Willow fame.

    Just big mouth with that bonned body... who wants her.. she will be a single and do same stupid jokes when she is 70 years old. just so sad. NOw, she is after who is only 17 years old. I am a democrat but Willow is still a human and a young kid. leave her alone.. you non sense Kathy. How low can you get.. and how can you even go outside with that face.
    she went from d to "NO" list. We Gay people should NOT support the woman who trashes anyone.. setting up a bad example.

    willow's old enough to know how to hatefully use the word that starts with an 'f' and rhymes with 'hag', so unless someone uses some parenting skills on her, she gets what she deserves.

    So your going to say a 16 year old girl should be publicly scrutinized for saying the word f@g? What planet do you live on? Kids say that all the time, regular people say that all the time. It's not that uncommon a word

This is about more than Griffin's latest 'funny', taking after a 16 year old. It is OBVIOUS something is very wrong with that woman! I'm wondering what is wrong with you, CNN, to submit your viewers to distasteful experiences - on a holiday weekend, no less!!!! Anderson, it is time for you to find a new network.

    This is so wrong. I don't care what her political ideology is or how far left she is, attacking a teenager for political/personal gain is wrong. I am not a big fan of lawsuits; however, some action needs to be taken to stop this. It is obvious that Griffin cannot control herself, someone else is going to have to force her to behave responsibly. Unfortunately since Kerry's attack on Cheney's daughter, this seems to be the left's MO.

    Verbal bullying is wrong, whether it's a kid or an adult carelessly tossing about thoughtless words. With a kid, like Willow, we expect her to occassionally say and do things that aren't well thought out or smart. But Griffin is a grown woman. She should know better. If she was offended by Willow's comments, she should lead by example - not engage the teen in a verbal brawl.

    This so called "KID" who many people know and recognize is using hateful language.Willow probably doesn't even realizebut she is in a position to influence people. Posting positive messages or not saying anything at all is better than what she chose to do on a public forum. Kathy Griffith may not be the appropriate person to teach Willow this lesson but someone should. If she would have used the N-word you can bet many adults would be "picking" on her too. 16 year olds can be tried as adult for crimes. The need to be held responsible for thier actions.

I'm not a Kathy Griffin fan, but when she said she was going to target Willow, that comment itself was intended to be a joke and every one of you missed it. What a bunch of numbskulls you all are. It's almost the same kind of comment that John Lennon made about being more popular than Jesus. He wasn't saying he was, he was saying it seemed that way.

    What Kathy Griffin is doing here appears to be going beyond mere comedy. I mean, I can understand that people in the spotlight will be the targets of jokes. That comes with the territory. So jokes about Sarah Palin as a major political figure, yep I can understand. Jokes about Bristol as a contenstent on DWTS also are understandable (but Kathy Griffins jokes were unusually harsh and hateful, borderline material at best). But jokes about Sarah? Now she's crossing the line into pure hate actions. Why Kathy Griffin feels such hatred towards the Palins that she feels the need to insult all aspects and members of the family I do not know. But she has definately lost my respect (I even avoided watching the new years shows with her on them as I could not stomach such a hate filled person being given a potential venue to vent).

I'm in no way, shape, or form condoning gay-bashing but c'mon Kath, this is a teenager you're about to go after. Teens shoot off their mouth without thinking all the time. Comes with the territory of not having good impulse control because of their age. That will come in a few years. Besides, I'm sure she got a righteous, well deserved tongue lashing from her mother.

    Kathy Griffin is a pathetic human being. She has no discernable talent, so she says the most repulsive and disgusting things about anyone conservative and especially Christian. Being a leftist liberal, it is a prerequisite to make fun of Sarah Palin and her family. I have never seen such rabid hatred and disdain for anyone the way the liberals hate Sarah Palin. It's like they are obsessed with this woman and can't keep quiet about her. You'd think that liberals would applaud a woman who is successful in her career, marriage and family. But I guess conservatives don't count. Why anyone allows Griffin on their TV shows or news programs or anywhere out in public is beyond me. She is a hateful person and that makes her extremely unattractive, unfunny and not worth listening to or watching.

    Kathy, so you have no more material to use, you have to go after a 16 year old child because of her religious belief.

Keep in mind that in Matthew 18: verse 6, Christ tells us "But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him (her) if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in teh depth of the sea" Personally, looking at that it makes me fear the Lord God of Heaven.

    How lame is THIS? Griffin is going to get her jollies by "taking down" some 16-year old kid, just because she's one of the Palin family? Has Griffin seen what offensive, incorrect stuff just about every OTHER 16-year old puts on THEIR Facebook page?
    If you hate Sarah Palin, then fine. Join the leagues of other liberal, knee-jerk bashers and get your kicks making fun of Sarah Palin. But to jump in on the kids for something as menial as this, GET A LIFE, KATHY! You are SUCH a loser!

    My first question is why does Sarah Palin intimidate so many people. She works for her living which is more than a lot of people do. Why do intelligent beautiful women scare people? She has the balls to stand for what she believes in and not let the good old boys club sway her. Secondly, Kathy needs to go. She's obviously out of stuff that's funny. And, how many kids use the fa.ot word on facebook. But only the ones with a name we know get targeted. Everyone needs to grow up and stop pointing fingers. And, let's retire Kathy. She was very ignorant on New Years Eve. I felt had for Anderson.

    Unfortunately CNN is now the equivalent of tabloid tv. My family brought in the new year with the Jaws marathon as all the mainstream networks now subscribe to stupid program line ups for the big bash that have gone so far beyond ridiculous it is pathetic. We don't find Kathy funny. Nor do we find the Palins interesting or news worthy. Reality programs are taking over and their stars are getting a lot of unwarranted publicity. Sarah needs to pull those kids out of the spotlight. Even if one has never watched Sarah's show, the evening news keeps us informed of what is going on even showing clips, this includes local news programs. I for one would like to see at least one news program dedicated to real news instead of learning who is guest starring on Sarah's show, who Jon is dating, why Snookie got arrested, or which real housewife filed a lawsuit. CNN use to mean REAL news. I wish CNN would get back on the news track and leave the publicity hounds and reality stars to ET. Now hear this CNN: There is a vast amount of talented comedians that may love the opportunity to cohost a show on New Years Eve. If you need help, give Tyler Perry a call. He could definitely put together a line up of incredible talent!

I think more than anything I pity a woman like Kathy who can only make the rent by picking on people she doesn't even know. Hey Kathy, make the rent another way.

    To all of you who seem so sympathetic to Willow, remember that it's not Kathy who put the comment out there and decided to ride on the coat-tails of her mother's political name. Both Bristol AND Willow could expect full consideration as "just a teenager" if they didn't use the platform and notoriety gained by their mother to say stupid, bigoted B.S. And they both admitted they attacked this guy because he disagreed with their mother's and their family's politics.

    For crying out loud, Bristol literally makes a living off of her mother's name. What other unwed teens can command $25,000 for a speaker's fee to talk about getting knocked up in high-school? None! Go ahead and tell me that they aren't cashing in on the platform provided by their mother's politics.

    These things being considered. They signed up for the fame and therefore are to be held accountable in the court of public opinion, including comedic rhetoric. Take it like a big girl if you want to play with the adults.

But that doesnt excuse Griffin's boorish attacks on Palin's children. Hey, Griffin, leave those kids alone!

    Who cares what Willow says on her Facebook page. She's a kid who's probably being raised in a dysfunctional home. At least she's not co-hosting CNN's New Years Eve bash with Anderson Cooper. Kathy Griffin, unlike Willow Palin, is an adult public figure and an alleged comedienne. Willow is far better at being a teenager than Griffin is at being funny.

    Get over yourselves people. Is Kathy Griffin funny? Most times no, but she can be. Should she limit her rants to adults? Most cases yes. However, in this case, Willow Palin is fair game. Regardless of age, when a 16 year old and her older sister put themselves out there on FaceBook and post racial slurs at people, they are fair game. All of you have more than likely blasted Mel Gibson for his drunken racial slurs, why are the Palin girls any different? Because of their age? If they did not want their words to be seen by the public and be the brunt of jokes, then they should not have done what they did. I blame the parents for not raising their children properly.

      Innocent? Apparently you know nothing about the three oldest Palin offspring. Trapp went into the Army to avoid jail. Bristol has been in the news enough for you to know about her. Willow is awaiting trial for leading a burglary ring in her hometown and has had the same drug issues as big brother and sister. She also seems in danger of following Bristol's footsteps in other ways (another grandkid for Sarah?).

    You people are all morons. I’m sorry but unlike you other dolts I don’t see a 16 year old as a child (they can DRIVE, no CHILD drives), they are FULLY aware of what they say and what it means. I don’t know what school you went to (or didn’t) where 16 year olds were angels and completely oblivious to the world but I’m sure it involved a shortbus to get there.

    Sidenote: YOU DON’T MAGICALLY HIT 18 and stop screwing up. “she’s a kid, she’ll make mistakes!” we as human beings will ALWAYS make mistakes, difference is most of us aren’t in the public eye and the majority of people have the common sense to either not be a bigot or not publicize being a bigot.

      Everything that Griffin says is obnoxious. She's a revolting, nasty, talentless troll who is desperate to draw attention to herself. Just because you can wear a stupid, surgically-enhanced grin while making caustic, vicious remarks doesn't make you a comedienne. The only question I have is who has Griffin been blowing at CNN lately to get so much air time on that network? Was the Hunchback of Notre Dame already booked for New Years Eve? It's one thing to make nasty remarks about juveniles just because you don't like their mother's politics, but it's quite another to be unfunny while you're doing it.

      Absolutely correct! The two oldest Palin children already proved themselves to be less than angels (Trapp went into the Army to avoid jail for drugs, Bristol was knocked up at 16). Little Miss Willow has already shown herself to be no slouch in her aim to follow their examples. She is still awaiting trial for her alleged leadership in a burglary ring and has been publically called out for her personal lewdness/crudemess/ lack of self-control long before Griffin made this joke about her.

      Hate to tell you Palin lovers this, but if one of our kids acted the way the older Paln kids were acting, you'd be screaming about the poor parenting and demanding their collective butts be tossed into jail to teach them a lesson.

When does he work and what does he work on. Useless ineffective President and no it is not because he is of "mixed" not all black heritage.

    While in general going after a 16 year old is not reasonable, most 16 year olds don't put themselves into the national political forum. Be assured that the posting was screened and approved by all of the Palin handlers. It's just one more way for them to play the "liberal media is attacking us" angle. Palin's are the one that decided to continually put themselves into the public spotlight with TV shows, appearances, etc. That makes each of the family members that do so fair game for the media or others to make comments.

    The Palin's have no moral values and prove it each time they open their mouths. That includes the recent farce of a PSA Bristol made for "abstinence”. I think we all know that horse left the barn a couple of years ago. Those that shout out against targeting the children are the same one's that came after the daughters of the Carter's & Clintons’ yet gave a free pass to the Bush daughters having substance issues. So, for those that cry "unfair" maybe you should contact Palin and tell her to keep her kids under control.

    If Palin wants the media to stop picking on her, then maybe she herself should get out of the public spotlight and take the kids with her.

    First of all, Kathy Griffin, though not terribly funny, and a show-business bottom feeder of the highest order, did not actually make fun of, or ridicule Willow Palin. She made a joke about doing it. The fact that so many of you missed that point is the kind of thing that shows, quite clearly, that Darwinism, tragically, is no longer in effect. Secondly, Sarah Palin has used everything available to her, including her family, to sell her "brand," and turn a profit while she can. She and her family are fair game...especially for the entertainment bottom-feeders, where she's also destined...

    Point 2: What if she was talking about Michelle Obama or one of the ObamaKids the same way as she's talked about Palin? That would be WRONG, you say. Why? Palin's a public figure, so she's open to any and all attacks. Why isn't BHO and his clan? Fair is fair, wrong is wrong.

      EM, thank you for pointing out the real issue here. The reason she is highlighting a 16-year-old is the fact that she comes from a family very much trying to be in the public spotlight and even choosing to be on a reality show! As a public figure, it is assumed that people may try to take a shot at you. It was her responsibility to uphold her own (and family's) appearance. Saying something that inappropriate, on a public place – just asks to be disciplined, and if her mom won't then I guess it's up to the rest of us. I do not care so much that she is a Palin, any young adult of a public personality should be held responsible for things they say, when they are out of line – or get the heck out of the spot light!

    The only thing funny about Kathy Griffin (and I used to be a huge fan until late) is her mother. Her mother is a doll. I used to admire Kathy's bravado, now I just find it cheap and easy. Continually picking on people as your ENTIRE comedy routine does not a comedian make, Kathy. A bully? Perhaps. But not a comedian.

    I think people are missing the point; If 16 year old Willow is a big enough girl to post nasty comments about "f-gs" then she is big enough to be on the receiving end of it. 50 or not, Kathy is defending someone being attacked. And all of her jokes are about people who talk like they are larger than life. When has she attacked someone completely innocent?

      Terri, you really need to think about this a little bit without the haze of hatred for the Palins covering your brain. Teens sometimes react quickly to things that are said to or about them without thinking first. This is because they are still learning how to behave appropriately. Adults in the world and in their lives are supposed to be teaching them, not ridiculing them, abusing them and/or bullying them. Teens are not adults. Research shows the brain is not through developing until the early to mid-20's, so please, don't bully teens because they say something you disagree with. Are adults not capable of thinking and behaving on a more mature level than a teen or a fit-throwing pre-schooler? How we react shows the teen how to behave; get it?

Other comedians make jokes about the Palin family without being crude, even if you don't find them funny. Now, I would love for the Palins all to go back to Alaska and stay there without any cameras pointed at them. (I can dream, can't I?)

      Dick, are you seriously saying Trig is a "mongoloid"? No one has used that term for more tan 40 years, unless they are uneducated and beyond pathetic. His condition is referred to as either Down's Syndrome or Trisomy 21. Good grief, take some classes and get some education......

    • Seriously?

      The term for Trigg's disorder, as rightfully corrected above, is 'Down's Syndrome'. If you would like to be more scientific, the genetic term is Trisomy 21, meaning that instead of just a pair of chromosomes at spot 21, the individual has 3 chromosomes, leading to physical and mental retardation for which there is no cure.
      The term 'mongoloid' is used, most commonly, in the anthropological field to describe human skeletal features and/or other physical markers as belonging to someone of the 'Mongoloid' group. This group includes peoples from Asia, the Antarctic and Native North America, among others.

      I think even less of Kathy Griffin than I do of the Palins, and that's saying something. Griffin is a talentless, loud, neurotic, and incredibly homely alleged comedienne. The most successful comics are immensely likable. Griffin polarizes the audience and the people who don't like her HATE her. In that sense, she's a lot like Sarah Palin. The only reason that Griffin is going after the Palin kids is because she is desperate to draw attention to herself. She's a blight on the culture, and one has to wonder how many network executives she's blown to keep her ugly puss on the air.

Wha the young Palin needs to learn is 1) a better vocabulary and 2) thicker skin.

If you take the Palin's seriously, or Griffin for that matter, that's when "funny" turns into rants that we've seen on this post from either side of the philosphical spectrum.

    The Palins have allowed themselves to become a joke by putting everything, especially their kids out there, and Kathy Griffin is just using what has already become public fodder. When The Ozbournes had their idiotic reality show, one of their sons refused to participate, and he was spared any and all public humilation. Do I think Kathy should do it?

      That was their oldest daughter, Amy, who refused to participate, and she was an adult of 23 who did not live at home. You need to get your facts straight. She was not a 16 year old who was living at home. Kathy Griffin is not being funny when she bullies a kid; teens are still learning appropriate boundaries, but Kathy ought to already know them.

      When I was a teen, if I said or did anything out of line, adults in my life talked to me and straightened me out, but no adult would have been allowed to ridicule me or publicly bully me because I messed up. They darn sure wouldn't have done it and said it was funny because that would have made them look like bigger bullies by far, Teens need teaching and they don't get it by bullying. This utter crap of blaming everything a teen says on their parents is wrong, too. Any of you posters who have teens surely have had your child make mistakes that have embarrassed you, made you wonder "what the heck?", and made you wish you could, just for a day or two, walk away from being their parent. You are all so self-righteous and perfect, maybe you don't have kids.

      I truly don't care about Sarah Palin at all; I'm sick of hearing about her, I never have watched her show, didn't watch DWTS, and all I care about here is people bullying teens for the fun of it and to make money. In our area, teens are dying because of the bullying; in fact, one child killed himself at the age of 9. Kids are not targets for this stupid kind of "humor", which isn't funny anyway.

    Minors are NOT fodder. They are off limits. When we were growing up, if an adult "took on" a teen for a stupid comment, it would look worse on the bullying adult than the teen. Kids and teens are not little adults. They are immature because they are not finished growing both mentally and physically. Let them get flack for their stupid comments, like the gay slur WIllow Palin uttered, but the flack is NOT an invitation to bully the kid.

    This red-headed mess will do anything to headline the news. Kathy Griffin should've taken the place of Greg Giraldo. If she bullies a kid, I'd love to see her bullied in return with a nice undercut to her neverending chin.

      Well, CNN has had her back now for three years or so - so, there must be a lot of people watching. The networks are ruled by ratings, and people must like the Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin combo. Also, if you've ever actually watched it, you can tell that the two of them are friends and know each other well. It's apparent that many people on here have never watched them together; otherwise, they wouldn't make such ill-informed comments about AC being "forced" to do NYE with Griffin.

    When you do a reality show with children, those children are now fair game for the comedians and talk show hosts to comment and make fun of for whatever reason. Everything on reality shows is open game and these families that choose to be part of a reality show must know that by now. Sure the kids probably had no choice in the matter but instead of berating the true entertainers of our media, blame the parents. These people will do anything for fame and fortune including subjecting their children to these kinds of invasions of privacy.

      It's amazing to me the number of people who are so concerned about Kathy Griffin supposedly "bullying" a 16-yo who should have known better than to put those remarks on her page. If you have them, keep them to yourself, and keep yourself out of the limelight. But, of course, the Palins love the limelight. Also, is no one interested in all of the bullying in schools that goes on because of the crap that Willow put on her page (and I'm sure promotes at school, if she's still in one)? Where is your concern for the masses of bulling that so many students suffer every day in high school for merely being who they are - and not for broadcasting hatred on the internet. Everyone needs to get their priorities in order. If you hate and put it out there in a public forum, you can expect feedback - positive and negative. Most everyone who's commented on this list needs to check their moral compass and common sense.

      @David – Going after Sarah Palin is one thing. Same with Todd...and even Bristol, to a degree. But taking digs at teenagers just doesn't sit right.

      Sorry, but I'm more old school. Leave the politician's family alone.
      Honestly, what does it prove to bash on someone's kids?
      Perhaps we need another Harry Truman:
      "Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you'll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below." – Letter (1950) to Washington Post music critic Paul Hume for criticizing his daughter, Margaret, for her singing performance. [Written on White House stationary]. In this letter, "give 'em hell" Harry had plenty of other insults for the reporter.

      There is nothing classy or interesting about a 50-year old woman making a teenager the focal point of her "humor". I used to like Griffin's humor – especially on the Comedy Central roasts – where the "victims" voluntarily submitted themselves to verbal abuse, but Willow Palin? She's overstepped boundaries here.

      Funny how the Palin haters will justify an adult (I use the term loosely) bashing a teenager. Some of you say that if someone puts down a gay then she has it coming for her. How come you don't apply that logic to everyone? Why just gays? If someone puts down a Christian you sure won't see you liberals up in arms over protecting that person, your all a bunch of lying hypocrites, you put your politics first, second and last and to hell with anyone else. Kathy Griffin has made a career of being an idiot with idiotic opinions and the people on this post defending her are as stupid as she is.

      @Donnie H........Wow, I would comment that you're a "little" off topic here, but that would be a BIG understatement!! This is about a "grown" woman verbally attacking a child. There is no excuse for this type of behavior whether a "comedian" and/or talking head is doing it to a Palin child, Obama child, or anybody's child. This is crossing the line. It appears that Griffin sees nothing wrong with being "anti-bullying" if the child is gay, but it's okay to bully if the child is from someone she disagrees with politically......NOW you can talk about being a hypocrit! As for the rest of your "ranting", I hope you enjoyed your venting whether it was on topic or not b/c it sounds as if you have some serious issues you need to deal with!!

      Kathy Griffin is a disgusting excuse for a human being. Any 40+ year old woman who attacks a child is demented and criminal. Any network that airs this pigs rants about a child should be fined.

      K.Griffin is annoying, vulgar, not funny, mean, and definitely a b-tch. She's going to go after a teenager now...why doesn't she pick on someone who would make mince meat out of her. I cannot believe that A.Cooper put up with her. I'm sure he could have easily refused to have anything to do with her.

      Lay off the Palin's. Who do you think you are that you can insult people. As far as I'm concerned you're picking on them because you are jealous of them. You're never were a very good comedian and now you're getting worse.

      Hi Kathy,
      Who died and left you JUDGE of WHOSE TURN IT IS TO "GO DOWN" ?
      Is THAT how you think you are going to make people LAUGH???
      By the way, are standing in front of the wrong flag. Venezuela is more APPROPRIATE for a so-called" woman" like you.
      Your visible aging is proof of the connection of mind and body.
      Ugly inside and out.- YOU MADE THE CHOICE.
      I would advise reading some of the Dali Lama's material, and latest quotes.
      Your personal KARMA is going to be REAL INTERESTING for the whole world to observe.
      Your comical inspiration .. if ever it DID exist ... has quite obviously vanished.
      Could it be because Levi wanted nothing more to do with you?
      That's a no-brainer!

      The only way to show your disapproval for her bullying attack on a teenager is her pocket book, boycott her, don't go to her shows, don't buy tickets for any of venues, and complain to sponsers when she is on any program. Do that for a year and she will think again about attacking a 16 year old girl

      Kathy, Give it up girl! You have lost it. Can you not do better than attacking children? You have "Jumped the shark" girl! You attempts at humor lack intelligence and thought. You might reconsider your mode if you expect to continue in this business. You keep sinking lower and lower and are losing fans in droves along the way. Grow up!

      Kathy Griffin is such an old bag. She's not funny and she's just a nasty person. She's pretty desperate when she has to pick on kids to make jokes. Good thing she never became a mother. She probably would have had her kid taken away for child abuse. Lay off kids you red headed witch and pick on someone your own age. Your not funny, your washed up, your plastic surgery and dyed bright red hair makes you look like a scary old witch that dropped on the planet from another world. Your sick picking on kids. Get some new lines hagatha cause your jokes aren't funny.
