Bristol Palin Speaks Out Against Celebrity Bullies

Bristol Palin Speaks Out Against Celebrity Bullies

Bristol Palin isn't going to just stand around and let people call her names. The former Dancing with the Stars contestant and single mom is taking issue with certain celebrities who've had some not-so-nice things to say about her.

"I feel like I'm being pushed around, but I'm strong enough to handle it," Palin told E! News' Giuliana Rancic. "It's really strange. There's so many celebs these days who are anti-bullying, but there's an exclusion to that. We have these actors like Kate Walsh and Kathy Griffin who are like bullies."

The 20-year-old is referring to Walsh's Twitter criticism of Palin (who's an advocate for abstinence) giving a college sex talk, and Kathy Griffin's jabs at her weight during a performance for U.S. Troops.

But Sarah Palin's daughter says Griffin's remarks, in particular, haven't hurt her feelings.

"It didn't just because it was coming from Kathy Griffin of all people," Palin said. "I think it just shows her immaturity. I don't think that stuff's funny at all. She just has a weird hate for our family, just like her coming to Alaska and knocking on our front door."

And, Palin wonders: Should Griffin really be throwing stones about people's appearances, when the redhead has had her own history with bad plastic surgery?

"It's weird that she'd also pick on my weight when she's had botched lipo procedures and stuff like that," she added. "It's just weird that she would pick on something like that with another woman."

Griffin's not apologizing for her remarks -- but she did try to defend herself to Chelsea Handler on Chelsea Lately, claiming that making fun of someone in the limelight just comes with the territory.

"There's a big difference between being a comedian and bullying," she said. "It's our job. It's what we do."
