When comedienne Kathy Griffin called Bristol Palin "The White Precious" she was accused of bullying the Dancing With the Stars finalist. But Griffin says that attacking Bristol in that way was just part of her job.

The comic appeared on Chelsea Lately last night to defend her honor. "There's a big difference between being a comedian and bullying. It's our job, it's what we do," Griffin said.

For her part, Chelsea Handler agreed: "You're absolutely right. I don't take anything I say seriously ... Bullying is being a bully to someone who's defenseless -- a poor little person who's done nothing wrong, not the people who are a--holes."

Don't be surprised to see a Bristol-penned Facebook note about this in the near future.
