Bristol Palin: Kathy Griffin ‘has a weird hate for our family’

Comedian Kathy Griffin has made no secret of her distaste for Palin’s family — she’s called “Dancing With the Stars” finalist Bristol fat, baby Trig a “retard” and said 2011 was 16-year-old Willow’s “year to go down.”

But Bristol Palin wasn’t offended when Griffin joked at last year’s USO Diva’s Salute event, “[Bristol Palin] is the only contestant in the history of [“Dancing with the Stars”] to actually gain weight … She gained, like, 30 pounds a week. I swear to God, it was fantastic. She’s like the white ‘Precious.'”

Bristol told E! Online Tuesday that Griffin hasn’t gotten to her.

“It didn’t [hurt my feelings] because it was coming from Kathy Griffin of all people, and I think it just shows her immaturity,” Palin said. “I don’t think that stuff’s funny at all. Just very strange.”

Bristol addressed that Griffin has repeatedly poked fun at the family, and she finds this odd.

“She has a weird hate for our family, just like her coming to Alaska and knocking on our front door. And it’s weird, also, that she would pick on my weight. She’s had botched liposuction procedures and stuff like that, so … It’s just weird that she would pick on something like that for another woman … I think she would just not be an enjoyable individual to be around at all.”

In the unlikely event that Griffin were to make an apology, Bristol would accept it.

“She’s never going to, but yes, I would accept it,” Bristol said.

Earlier this year, the Hollywood Reporter reported that Griffin said 2011 would be her year “to offend a new Palin,” that Palin being teenage Willow, who had recently come under fire for using slurs “gay” and “faggot” in a Facebook feud.

“I think it’s Willow’s year to go down,” Griffin said. “She’s called people a ‘faggot’ on Facebook a couple of times. You don’t throw around the f-word without hearing from me about it.”

Trig Palin, who has Downs Syndrome, was the first of the Palin kids to be blasted by Griffin. In 2009, Griffin justified calling Trig a “retard baby” via her Twitter account:

“When I say her ‘retarded baby,’ I am quoting HER! Sarah Palin said it about her youngest! Jeez, don’t you guys watch ‘The Insider’? XO, K.”

    Wow, Kathy Griffin is now the annoying neighborhood mother that will give your kid a spanking for telling her little Johnny that he can’t run fast.

    Seriously, when you start picking feuds with 14 year olds because their choice of vocabulary, you are pathetic.

    It just goes to show she doesn’t think much about this primal hatred she has for the Palins. How ridiculous do you look when your arch-nemesis is some 14 year old on Facebook?

    Good for Bristol to answer the question SHE WAS ASKED in an adult and mature manner. The PDS infested trolls here could learn a few lessons in civility from her.

  • notalone

    Hasn’t gotten to her? Wow sure said alot for someone claiming it hasn’t gotten to her. Griffin is a disgusting lowlife and if bristol would stop trying to be like her mom – she would NOT whine about it. If there was a reward given out for the whiniest of the whiney it would go to them.

    Bristol: You are handling it like an adult. Good job.

    Calling childish names, attacking children, lying about conservatives is what the left does. They always have. Don’t sink to their level. You are correct. it is not funny.

    KG does it to get attention. Your name brings in the media.

    Cathy isn’t funny and couldn’t charge a blind person 50 cents for a trick.

    The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. “I’m a victim” (Palin women).

    • glassmaker

      Where did she say she was a victim?

      • badash

        She didn’t, but it’s a tactic the left uses often. They attack/assault/accuse Sarah Palin and when she tries to defend herself they jump on her and claim she’s playing the victim.

        Not sure about anyone else, but when someone says something about me I will speak up and defend myself.

  • jmk1502

    Bristol Palin is about as qualified as her moron quitter mother to hold public office. Or Michelle Bachmann.

    • thephranc

      If Palin is a moron and so successful what is your excuse for never rising to the level she has?

  • ER5150

    Kathy Griffin is a no talent Skank.

  • letsbehonest

    Yes Bristol, it’s kind of like the “weird hate” your mom has for President Obama and his family.

    • glassmaker

      Seriously? You’re comparing Griffen and her hate-filled, vile, nasty, puss-filled rhetoric with Palin criticizing Obama’s policies? When has Palin ever gone after Obama’s kids?

      • letsbehonest


        Sarah’s children are little angels that understand abstinence and love the word FAGGOT when using Facebook. God bless these people. LOL

          The false outrage is embarrassing at this point. You have a problem with “faggot” uttered by a 16 year old girl, and not anything Kathy-I-never-met-a-cannula-I-didn’t-want-inserted has ever said? You’re really very hypocritical.

    • thephranc

      You aren’t being honest.
