To begin her final week as co-host of The View, Meghan McCain decided to lay into Kathy Griffin, who just announced she was diagnosed with lung cancer and underwent surgery to remove half of her left lung.

Not surprisingly, McCain's comments have landed her in hot water with plenty of people all over the internet.

It all began when the co-hosts of The View discussed Griffin's recent announcement, which she made on her own Instagram and during an exclusive interview with ABC News.

During the interview, Griffin divulged her past struggles with mental health and an addiction to painkillers, struggles spurred primarily from the controversy created in 2017 when she published a photo of herself holding a severed head in the likeness of then-President Donald Trump.

With all that in mind, most of stars of The View offered only kind words and messages of support toward Griffin.

Meghan McCain, however, decided to let her criticisms fly.

First, she zeroed in on that photo.

"It's so graphic that we can't actually show it on the show."
"I just wonder if this show would have the same reaction if a conservative host or conservative comedian had held up a head of Vice President Harris, President Obama, President Biden."

McCain then laid into Griffin for the comedian's previous bullying comments made toward Clay Aiken (she called him "Gayken" before he publicly came out as gay).

"She made very, very, very cruel and homophobic jokes about him before he was out of the closet."
"I think he's lucky he didn't become an opioid addict, given the degree of bullying that happened to him when he was still struggling to come out of the closet."
"I would love to hear an apology, if she's doing this kind of soul-searching, for what could've happened with my good friend."
"I don't like her, I'm never going to like her for all the jokes she made about Clay."

McCain didn't stop there. She went as far as to compare Griffin to ISIS.

"And I don't like her because I don't like seeing severed heads of anyone, any place, because it reminds me of what ISIS does to our soldiers."



When news of McCain's comments hit Twitter, people were quick to denounce her choice to add insult to injury.





In all likelihood, Meghan McCain is the least of Kathy Griffin's concerns at a time like this. We wish her a speedy recovery.
