Elisabeth Hasselbeck vs. Kathy Griffin: Whos the Winner?

In case you missed the latest Elisabeth Hasselbeck beef with Kathy Griffin, take a look at The View video clip above, where Hasselbeck refers to Griffin as “scum” for calling Senator Scott Brown’s daughters prostitutes during a My Life on the D-List segment.

In the fight of Elisabeth Hasselbeck vs. Kathy Griffin… who’s the winner here? Let’s get ready to rumble!!!!

In this corner… Elisabeth Hasselbeck
Elisabeth makes a good point that kids should be off limits for comedians to poke fun at. It was insulting and offensive and Senator Brown was not pleased with Griffin’s joke at the expense of his daughters. Hasselbeck’s opinion that Kathy is scum may be a bit harsh, given that we know Griffin is making a joke, but you know… it’s The View and opinions are what this show is all about.

And… in this corner… Kathy Griffin
Kathy Griffin is a comedian, whose brand of humor for better or for worse happens to include insulting famous people. She’s built her brand on it. Does that make what she said okay? Should she apologize to Scott Brown? Even if she should… would she? Likely not. That’s not Kathy Griffin’s style, typically. It should be noted, however, that after she said the bit about Scott Brown’s daughters, a disclaimer of sorts scrolled on My Life On The D-List from “the Bravo legal team,” that said “Scott Brown’s daughters ARE NOT prostitutes. We now return to our regularly scheduled negativity.”

So, who do you think comes out the winner here Elisabeth or Kathy?

Elisabeth says her peace on The View and gets her dig in on Kathy Griffin, but c’mon… Griffin LOVES the exposure. Any attention is good attention for Kathy, who is the self-described queen of the D-List. With every second of air time that Elisabeth discusses Kathy, it’s just more exposure for the reality queen/comedian. She confirms this with the following post on Twitter: “haha, Scott Brown is the Spencer Pratt of the US Senate. THIS is a great time 2 come c me live. OF COURSE I’m lovin all the publicity LOVIN IT.”
