Kathy Griffin’s “Bristol Palin Fat Joke” Backlash

We’ve learned that if you’re going to make a fat joke about Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential Candidate of 2008 Sarah Palin, expect Bristol to come out fighting and firing back. During VH1’s Divas Salute The Troop special, Kathy Griffin’s stand-up included calling Bristol Palin “white precious”- whatever that means.

Well, anyway, during this VH1 special, Kathy Griffin made a joke about Bristol Palin, saying she was the only Dancing with the Stars contestant in the show’s history to actually gain weight instead of losing weight during the 12 week dancing competition.

“No, come on, come on. She gained like 30 pounds a week, I swear to God, it was fantastic. She’s like the white Precious,” says Kathy Griffin during her stand-up on the Divas Salute The Troop special.

After telling that joke, Kathy Griffin was booed. So you may be thinking Kathy Griffin didn’t know her audience well enough or, perhaps, wasn’t prepared for such a reaction after attacking a conservative teen mom, of celeb status, at an event honoring the military? We think, maybe or maybe not. Kathy Griffin is known for her satire and biting comedy- and, in fact, being politically incorrect and even shocking in her very own mother’s eyes.

But, anyway, when Bristol heard about Kathy Griffin’s “Bristol Palin fat joke”, Bristol released a statement 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”.
