Kathy Griffin hosted the VH1 Divas Salute the Troops show recently. She took the opportunity to attack Bristol Palin calling her fat. That’s right, fat. Not only did she call her fat resulting in her getting booed by the crowd, but she kept pushing the point with the crowd, trying to get them to side with her. She said, “She’s the only contestant in the history of the show to actually gain weight.” The troops continued to boo her.

She went on to yell over the booing crowd to say her weight gain was like 30 pounds a week and called her the white “Precious.”

VH1 contemplated editing out the comments, but chose instead to leave them in because it has generated such attention.

Griffin hosted the VH1 Divas Salute to Troops in her bikini showing of her own body, which she called her “starvation” body. Her bikini was camouflaged and even came complete with an ammo belt.

Palin, 20, is taking the comments in stride. She is not trying to the let the 50 year old Griffin get to her. According to Palin, the audience’s reaction to Griffin was enough, and it spoke volumes.

The evening had a lot of young performers like Paramore, Nicki Minaj, and Katy Perry.
