    Is Kathy Griffin Going Too Far Targeting 16-Year Old Willow Palin?

    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 “the white Precious,” referring to Gabourey Sidibe’s role as an obese and abused teen mother in the 2009 Lee Daniels drama.

    The incident provoked widespread criticism.

    “Calling Bristol Palin fat is inappropriate and distasteful, even under the guise of humor,” body image expert and author of “Love Your Body Love Your Life,” Sarah Maria told Pop Tarts at the time. “The problem is that people, and particularly young people, easily absorb the ideas, beliefs, and attitudes that are presented to them."

    Bristol Palin herself responded, telling Pop Tarts that “The audience's reaction to this ‘comedian’ spoke volumes, and the decent people I know would probably have booed her, too.”

    Hollywood publicist Angie Meyer says Griffin’s targeting of Willow, a minor, is even worse.

    “To attack a young girl solely because of her last name seems rather contradictory of the types of justice she champions for others,” Meyer said. “A 50-year-old woman who chooses to attack a 16-year-old girl publicly at a time when cyber-bullying and teenage suicide are at their highest reported rates, not only sets irreconcilable example for others, it’s tasteless, immoral, and frankly – classless."
    I think the relatives of politicians (and celebutards) should be off-limits. You can't pick and choose your relatives or be held responsible for their choices. Attacking minors is just deeply offensive regardless of who does it. We've seen an ugly progression from Limbaugh calling Chelsea Clinton the "White House dog" to comedians like Griffin and Letterman accusing the children of politicians of being fat or sluts.

    To see a middle-aged woman attacking a young, single mother over body issues is just exasperating. It's as though the thoughtful parts of feminism just never happened. :mad:

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    What makes this even worse is that Griffin was self-confessed binge-eater and diet pill user who spent thousands on plastic surgery.

    No unhealthy body issues there.

    She's not a lesbian....well, I don't know for sure, but she is married to a dude. I'd sure hate to have to wake up to that.

    DISCLAIMER - I normally don't make such comments on looks, but Kathy Griffin really irritates me.

    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.
