Is Griffin going too far?


Kathy Griffin announced her New Year's resolution to continue a verbal assault on the Palin family. Only in 2011, the comedian said she intends to target Sarah Palin's 16-year-old daughter, Willow.

"I've already gone for Sarah, Todd and Bristol obviously," Griffin told The Hollywood Reporter. "But I think it's Willow's year to go down. In 2011, I want to offend a new Palin."

Could Griffin be switching to a younger, easier Palin target following her Bristol backfire in December?

On a special that aired Dec. 5, Kathy Griffin was jeered by the audience after attacking Bristol Palin for being "fat" while hosting the VH1 Divas "Salute to the Troops." Griffin called the 20-year-old to "the white Precious," based on Gabourey Sidibe's role as an obese and abused teen mother in the 2009 Lee Daniels drama.

The incident provoked widespread criticism.

  • I can't stand Kathy Griffin. She is really not very funny at all. Her voice is grating, her tone is vicious, and she just always seems to be making a desperate ploy for attention to her pathetic career.

  • Who is Kathy Griffin?
    Evidently she isn't very effective, nobody went down like she thought they did because of her assaults in the Palin family.

  • I can't stand to listen to her either. Yes, I do think she is taking things a bit too far. Her kids shouldn't be brought in to all of this. But sadly most of the time they do.

  • She's a "comedian" (using the term loosely, I don't find her that funny), I could care less who she makes fun of. Seems to me that she does this sort of thing to keep people talking about her.

  • I really can't stand that lady I agree with vicex.

    But, she is a comedian & i completely believe she was speaking sarcastically. Sarcasm is her thing...

  • She is a loser. Not funny, or even likable.

  • She is going too far.

  • It's part of a comedian's job to "go too far". Some people love it, some people hate it. That is the sacrifice you make when you try to be funny (which she is not).

  • Yes.
