Kathy Griffin has new target for 2011: Willow Palin
Comedienne Kathy Griffin says she has a new goal for 2011: Offend a new Palin.
She said her next target is Willow Palin, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's 16-year-old daughter. Griffin is known for controversial comments about the Palin family.
"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."
Griffin said the teenager is fair game, pointing to reports that Willow Palin posted homophobic slurs on Facebook in November.
Griffin has made her feelings for the Palins clear. She recently said she doesn't watch TLC's show "Sarah Palin's Alaska" because it makes her sick.
"I watched the first one, and then I had to have someone hold my hair because I was vomiting the whole time," Griffin said in an interview with PopEater. "So I didn't feel it was good for my health because I thought if I'm just going to projectile vomit every time I watch the show then I'm just not going to keep any nutrients in my body."
Griffin mocked Bristol Palin's weight during her comedy set at the "VH1 Divas Salute the Troops" event, which aired in December. The audience booed and Bristol Palin said the reaction "spoke volumes."
Griffin has said recently that the Palin family is "a riot."
"I just love these ridiculous larger than life characters," Griffin said on "The Late, Late Show" on CBS. "I just think the whole family is a riot. I'm not safe in Wasilla, I know that."
The 50-year-old comedienne successfully made it through her CNN New Year's Eve special with Anderson Cooper without being yanked from the show for using expletives.
She spurred CNN to issue an apology after she uttered the F-world several times during last year's New Year's Eve special.
