Comedian Kathy Griffin slammed Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene after Greene accused her of threatening to incite "civil war."

Earlier, Griffin urged her followers to vote for Democrats in November's midterm elections, saying voting for Democrats is the right choice for those who "don't want a Civil War" and voting for Republicans is the right choice for those that do.

The tweet angered Greene, who said Griffin's tweet sounded "very threatening," adding:

"Americans just want their elected leaders to solve their problems that have been shoved into their lives by stupid politicians."
"Not your civil war."

Greene then rather oddly advised Griffin to "tell your governor"—Griffin lives in Illinois, which is governed by Democrat J.B. Pritzker—"to increase fossil fuel use so people can have air conditioning."

Griffin responded shortly afterward with:

"Can someone please just get this poor woman some extra toes? Thx."

Griffin's retort was a reference to a photograph of Greene that went viral last summer.

It prompted many to suggest she has unusual-looking feet.

Griffin's response had Twitter users in stitches.

Others criticized Greene directly.

The two women clashed last month after Greene criticized Griffin for condemning the actions of Alex Stein, a known right-wing troll who had sexually harassed a female reporter at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

After Griffin observed the "misogyny with this crowd is just as pervasive as the racism," Greene defended Stein, saying he was "simply treating a hard leftist reporter the same way they treat people on the right," adding Stein had criticized her "to her face with facts and no mask."

Greene also responded by sharing a now-infamous photo of Griffin holding a likeness of the severed head of former Republican President Donald Trump.

In May 2017, Griffin posted a video of herself holding a prop meant to resemble Trump's severed head.

She wrote at the time, referencing a past comment Trump made about former Fox News anchorwoman Megyn Kelly:

"I caption this 'there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his...wherever."

Griffin was savaged for the image. Soon afterward, she removed the photo from her social media accounts and asked for forgiveness.

The backlash cost Griffin marketing deals and her spot on CNN's New Year's Eve broadcast with Anderson Cooper. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Secret Service investigated her to determine if she was, in fact, a threat to the President.

Griffin later retracted her apology but the incident made the comedian—who has regularly courted controversy for her style of comedy—the poster child for "Trump derangement syndrome," angering many on the political right amid a national conversation on the limits of First Amendment rights.
