Bristol Palin Jabs Back At Kathy Griffin Over ‘Fat Joke’

Bristol Palin swung back at Kathy Griffin after the redheaded comedian let a pretty serious ‘fat joke’ rip at the ‘VH1 Divas’ special this weekend. Find out what was said in response here.

There’s one trait that is pervasive in the Palin family: getting the last word—or at least trying to. While campaigning, her mother always seemed to have a witty response to her critics as they picked apart her every word. Even young Willow took to Facebook recently to defend her big sis while she competing on DWTS.

Like mother, like daughter.

Bristol Palin didn’t plan to go out quietly after Kathy Griffin cracked a harsh ‘fat joke’ while on stage at ‘VH1 Divas Salute Our Troops.’ In front of a crowd of mostly military personnel, Griffin quipped that the eldest Palin daughter was the first contestant ever to gain weight while working on DWTS. She drew a comparison to Gabourey Sidibe’s character ‘Precious.’

Roughly 24 hours after the special aired, Bristol returned fire, saying:

“The audience’s reaction to this ‘comedian’ spoke volumes, and the decent people I know would probably have booed her, too…I hope people didn’t have to pay money to hear her negativity and criticisms.”

There are definitely two sides to the matter. On one hand, Bristol could really loosen up and understand that she is no longer simply the daughter of a vociferous politician/TV personality, but she is now somewhat of a celebrity in her own right. Let’s be honest, once a person enters the world of entertainment, they have to be prepared to take a few on the chin.

However, given our society’s current obsession with skeletally shaped women, even comedians could ease up a little when it comes to weighty issues like this.
