Demi Lovato threw major shade at Kathy Griffin on Friday after the comedienne gave a press conference during which she claimed Donald Trump and his family bullied her for the photo of her holding up a bloodied and decapitated head resembling the president. Hours after Griffin griped about how the Trumps are “personally trying to ruin my life forever” following her beheading stunt, Lovato tweeted, “I find it funny when bullies play the victims.”

Of course, Lovato and Griffin have feuded for many years. As Gossip Cop has previously reported, their bad blood began in 2012 when Griffin mocked Lovato on her then Bravo show “Kathy” for cutting herself. The feud escalated two years later when Griffin called the singer the “biggest douche celebrity” on Twitter. After Lovato’s fans crushed the comedienne on social media, Griffin claimed on the “Howard Stern Show” not long afterwards that she had “no problem” with the singer, but that her supporters were “vicious” with their tweets.

Griffin, however, started up again with Lovato in 2015 after she sang “Cool For the Summer” at the MTV Video Music Awards. Having accused Lovato of lip-syncing, the redheaded comic wrote on Twitter, “Demi’s live singing was very obviously live if you know I’m saying. And then the rest of the track or tracks. #atleastshesang-ish.” Lovato, who felt Griffin was fixated on her, responded, “Happy 2 see ur still stanning me @kathygriffin. Dont worry, my new album is out Oct 16. But u prob already knew that.” That was followed by Griffin mocking Lovato’s use of the word “stan,” with her writing, “I was STANDING next 2u when I received my #dosomething award.”

With Griffin now feeling victimized, having lost work opportunities while receiving tremendous scorn for the beheading picture, Lovato is seemingly having the last laugh at the comedienne, who has arguably bullied her for the past half-decade. Griffin has not responded to Lovato’s tweet about finding it “funny when bullies play the victims.”
