Kathy Griffin Defiant After Someone Tries To Get Her Thrown Off Twitter

The comedian threw down a profane challenge after the complaint was dismissed.

Comedian Kathy Griffin cheekily snapped back early on Tuesday, after someone apparently filed a complaint with Twitter accusing her of rules violations.

The complaint cited Griffin's tweet hours earlier, in which she wrote "F***" in front of the names of Donald Trump, U.S. vice president Mike Pence, and assorted other figures associated with the Trump presidency.

Twitter reportedly investigated and dismissed the complaint, prompting Griffin's colourful overnight response to her enemies. "Keep trying motherf***ers," she wrote.

Griffin had already been generating buzz on social media for a profane diss of Melania Trump, after the first lady issued what many believed to be a weak comment on the Trump administration's policy of separating migrant families at the border. (Griffin misspelt Melania's first name as the president did recently for good measure. She did it again in the tweet that was reported.)

Griffin recently rescinded an apology for posing last year with the severed fake head of the president, and now appears to be stepping up her shtick against the Trump administration and its acolytes again.
