Bristol Palin blasts Kathy Griffin for ‘weight-gain’ jokeDecember 7th, 2010 - 6:27 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Dec 7 (ANI): Bristol Palin has blasted stand-up comedian Kathy Griffin for joking that she is the only contestant who gained weight while on the show ‘Dancing with the Stars’.
Griffin was booed when she called Palin “the white Precious”, and when she said she was “the only contestant in the history of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ to gain weight on the show”.
The analogy was clearly deemed offensive by many in the crowd. Precious, a character played in the 2009 Oscar-nominated film by Gabourey Sidibe, was an obese teenager who was repeatedly sexually abused by her father.
Palin, 20, blasted Griffin, 50, for the joke she made while hosting the ‘VH1 Divas Salute the Troops’ broadcast in honour of the U.S. military.
“The audience’s reaction to this ‘comedian’ spoke volumes, and the decent people I know would probably have booed her, too,” the New York Daily News quoted Palin as telling Fox News.
“I hope people didn’t have to pay money to hear her negativity and criticisms,” she added. (ANI)
