Bristol Palin Upset Over Kathy Griffin Fat Joke

by at . Comments

Kathy Griffin made a crack about Bristol Palin's weight recently.

Bristol responded on cue, although not on Facebook for once.

Griffin made fun of her appearance while hosting VH1 Divas Salute the Troops Friday, calling B.P. "the only contestant in the history of the show to actually gain weight," a somewhat harsh crack that elicited booing, not laughter.

"Come on, come on. She gained like 30 pounds a week," Griffin then continued amid jeers. "I swear to God, it was fantastic. She's like the white Precious."


Instead of devising a lengthy comeback like usual (see her gay joke at Margaret Cho), the 20-year-old kept her rebuttal short and sweet this time around.

"The audience's reaction to this 'comedian' spoke volumes, and the decent people I know would probably have booed her, too," Bristol Palin told Fox News.

"I hope people didn't pay money to hear her negativity and criticisms."

NOTE to comedians: Stop talking about the Palins and maybe they'll stop replying.
