Kathy Griffin has earned the ire of Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) for calling his daughters "prostitutes" on her Bravo show "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," reports the Boston Herald.
During the program, Griffin was quizzed by CNN reporters Dana Bash and Jon King, who flashed a photo of Brown in front of Griffin, asking her to identify him. The comedian replied, "Scott Brown, who is a senator from Massachusetts. And has two daughters that are prostitutes," the story says. After Bash starts laughing, the program came to a halt and Griffin narrates, "And now, a brief message from Bravo’s legal team: Scott Brown’s daughters NOT prostitutes!!! We now return you to our regularly scheduled negativity."
The incident has provoked Brown’s ire, with the junior senator issuing a statement saying, "People can call me any name they want, but families are off limits. I love my daughters, Ayla and Arianna, very much, and any parent would be proud to have them as children. Kathy Griffin and Bravo ought to be ashamed of themselves.”
