"I'm busy on tour right now or I'd dress up as you: a dumb, racist, and talentless hack," Griffin wrote.
Kathy Griffin unloaded on conservative commentator Tomi Lahren after she recreated the comedian's controversial Donald Trump beheading photo for Halloween.
Griffin received major backlash in 2017 after she participated in a photo shoot that included the "My Life on the D-List" star holding a bloody prop that looked like Trump's head. She first apologized for the photo, but then later retracted it. On Wednesday, Lahren mocked Griffin and shared a photo to her social media dressed in red wig and blue blouse, while holding a deranged, clown mask in place of Trump's head.

"Trump Derangement Syndrome," Lahren tweeted. "Happy Halloween @kathygriffin 😘"
"He ruined me. Sometimes I do things and you may wonder, Kathy, where is your head at? Well folks, I'm taking matters into my own hands," Lahren captioned the same pic on Instagram. "Yes, some may say I am looking more and more like Ronald McDonald by the day and you're not wrong. BUT I will stand here with my head held high! Happy Halloween from all of us infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome! MAGA! #TeamTomi #happyhalloween #KathyGriffin #PrayersforRonald #tagKathy"
Griffin didn't hesitate to use her quick wit to clap right back to the Fox News personality
"Gosh you are just so original @TomiLahren," Griffin wrote. "I thought images like this one incite violence! At least that's what you and your colleagues at @FoxNews have told me for the past year and a half."

"I'm busy on tour right now or I'd dress up as you: a dumb, racist and talentless hack," she added.
Lahren wanted the last word, though. "You're right Kathy, if I was trying to impersonate you I should have worn the clown mask instead," she responded. "That's my bad! Happy Halloween! Xoxo"
