Kathy Griffin blasted Donald Trump Jr. for using her name in a joke about Jussie Smollett’s alleged attack.

As reports from unnamed sources have surfaced that Chicago Police are investigating whether Smollett orchestrated his reported homophobic and racist attack, Trump Jr. posted a variation of the “hold my beer” meme involving Griffin.

The joke is in reference to Griffin’s controversial 2017 photo shoot where the comedian posed with a replica of Donald Trump’s severed head.

Griffin clapped back tweeting “It’s like clockwork with you two ladies. You and your father,(who hates you.) I retweet one of the dads typical stupid tweets, my response gets a ton of traction, then jr hops on instantly, and plagiarizes a tweet that’s been around for at least 12 hours. You really showed me.”

“Ps. Hey @DonaldJTrumpJr , in your last tweet you didn’t even have the balls to use my handle. Worried about mentions in your timeline from my fans? I mean I know you’re used to buying troll farms, but my fans are actual human beings, the greatest in the world and FEARLESS,” she added.

On Sunday, Trump called out “Saturday Night Live” for poking fun at his national emergency declaration.

“Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!” Trump tweeted.

Griffin replied: “You tried with me, went through all the paces to try to violate my 1st amendment rights, and…EPIC FAIL. I had my most successful world wide comedy tour, gave a speech at Oxford University about the 1st Amendment, and have a film about it, premiering at SXSW next month. Boom!”

Her response went viral with more than 16,000 likes.
