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 suspect Willow won't mind, since she's got far more class than this rapidly aging witch.
"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 to “the white Precious,” based on Gabourey Sidibe’s role as an obese and abused teen mother in the 2009 Lee Daniels drama.
The incident provoked widespread criticism.
Hollywood publicist Angie Meyer says Griffin’s targeting of Willow, a minor, is even worse.Frankly, she's just looking for attention and her dwindling audience will probably lap it up. But it makes her look pathetic and small. But when you washed up and desperate, you'll do anything for cheap laughs.
“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."
