Kathy Griffin calls Bristol Palin fat at USO event, and soldiers boo her By Laura Donovan - The Daily Caller 11:06 AM 12/06/2010 ADVERTISEMENT
Comedian Kathy Griffin wasnt so popular with the troops during her USO Divas Salute stand-up act on Sunday, when she poked fun at Bristol Palins weight.
[Bristol Palin] is the only contestant in the history of ["Dancing with the Stars"] to actually gain weight.
Following a chorus of boos, Griffin went on to say, No, come on, come on. She gained, like, 30 pounds a week. I swear to God, it was fantastic. Shes like the white Precious, referring to the obese African-American character in the eponymous 2009 film.
When the booing continued, Griffin shouted, You can boo louder than that! Come on, boo me! I love it! I love it! War is Hell, war is Hell!
This isnt the first shot Griffin has taken at the Palin family. In 2009, Griffin made jokes about Sarah Palins infant Trig, who was born with Down Syndrome. Kathy Griffin justified calling Trig Palin a retard baby via Twitter:

Uh, might be a man...
I agree, and I expect 87.5% of soldiers would agree, too.
I agree too, she is a very attractive young lady.
Rove, you brilliant bastard! He knew Britney would sign on. She demonstrated her fealty to President Bush in 2002, when she told Carson Daly: Honestly, I think we should just trust our president in every decision that he makes, and we should just support that, you know, and be faithful in what happens. A more loyal GOP foot-soldier could not be found
It’s not like everyone the USO asks to perform agrees to it. Just ask them. Even John Ondrasik (Five for Fighting) will tell you that not every act he asks to contribute to the “CD for the Troops” agrees to participate. Kathy Griffith is vulgar, but maybe she isn’t the biggest hater in hollywood.
Here is how the USO operates for these tours
I don’t have a problem with a comedian making fun of a person (well..maybe not people with Downs Syndrome like Trig)
That is what comedians do...from Jerry Seinfeld to Dennis Miller.
But she showed she didn’t know her audience. I am glad they booed her.
Much like the dark side of the Force. Look what it did to Senator Palpatine. :)
That explains a lot, thanks.
Also, add in Dr. Zeke and you’ve got a real trifecta there, haven’t you?
I just received a letter requesting a donation to USO. Now I have to ask myself, should I or shouldn’t i, and who the Hell is the bloody idiot at USO who was involved with this skank in the first place?
I've always supported the USO with small donations. I won't be sending another check to the USO until they fire America haters like Kathy Griffin.
More guys than you would know (and many who won't admit it)love women who are "pleasingly plump"
well said, and the truth!
You’re making a mistake, I think.
YAY for our savvy, knowing troops!
