Kathy Griffin has denied accusations by Sarah Palin that she is a "50-year-old adult bully".

During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show, the comic insisted that she was right to chide Sarah's teenage daughter Willow for branding a fellow Facebook user as a "f*ggot".

"When I was doing interviews for [her CNN] New Year's [Eve special], they said, 'Who are you going to go for?' I said, 'Well, I think a 16-year-old knows better'. Of course, I have a gay following and I love them," she remarked.

Griffin continued: "All I said was, 'You're going to hear from me'. I didn't say anyone was in my cross-hairs, there were no gun sights. None of that nonsense."

In December 2010, the former My Life on the D-List star was jeered during the Divas Support the Troops concert for mocking the eldest Palin daughter Bristol's weight.
