Some might say it is rather distasteful and unseemly for an adult to target a teenage girl, even in the name of comedy. We wonder if those same people would defend that teenager for posting gay slurs on her Facebook page.
Kathy Griffin is still getting slammed with criticism for her attack on 16-year-old Willow Palin, but that could be because she still hasn't stopped going after Sarah Palin's daughter in her comedy routines.
But if you think that is going to stop anytime soon, you are sadly mistaken. As Kathy's publicist told one source:
"When any public person puts 'your such a f****' on their Facebook wall, they are guaranteed to make it into Kathy's act."
And stay in Kathy's act, we imagine, for a good long while.
We get why Kathy's doing what she's doing, but Willow is still a kid. She's bound to screw up a time or two. Hell, we all do. We're not condoning her language by any means, mind you. We just wonder if maybe the message has already been received.
Still, Kathy's going to do her thing, no matter what any of us say, and if her thing is defending the gay community, we really can't argue.
