Kathy Griffin slams ‘embarrassing’ Jonas Brothers in resurfaced clip amid Joe’s divorce: ‘#TeamSophie’

Kathy Griffin is paying homage to Sophie Turner amid her messy divorce from Joe Jonas.

The comedian, 62, shared on Instagram Saturday a clip of herself trashing the Jonas Brothers during her stand-up comedy set back in 2009. She wrote alongside the clip, “#TeamSophie.”

In the video, Griffin called the boy band trio “embarrassing.”

“I don’t buy these three kids as sex symbols,” she exclaimed before pretending not to know their names.

Griffin also said their “f–king purity rings” — which the brothers once vowed to wear prior to getting married — were “fake” and “complete bulls–t.”

The “Suddenly Susan” alum also went after Jonas, 34, for dumping Taylor Swift.

She described the “Bad Blood” singer, 33, as “unbelievably tall” and looking like a “beautiful ‘Seventeen’ cover model” with “long, flowing blond hair.”

Swift dated Jonas for only a couple of months in 2008 and he broke up with her via a 25-second phone call.

She used the relationship fallout as inspiration for her second album, “Fearless,” on songs such as “Forever & Always,” “Last Kiss,” “Better Than Revenge” and “Mr. Perfectly Fine.”

“Where the f–k does he get off dumping beautiful Taylor Swift,” Griffin asked her audience in the clip.

The comic also wrote over the video, “All I can say is this is from 2009, and I was right.”

“Well, well, well… What else is there to say?” she added in the caption. “The House Griffin knows no queen but the queen in the north, whose name is Stark.”

Griffin isn’t the only celeb to come to Turner’s defense. Jessica Chastain reposted tweets Friday from feminist author Roxane Gay that read, “The way Joe Jonas miscalculated his popularity with his transparent attempts at PR manipulation, particularly when the North remembers is FASCINATING.

“And holding the children’s passports to keep them from their mother? Bruh. … And the thing is, these are not people I know or follow. I just read the ‘news.’ He has handled this SO badly that now I’m paying attention.”

Chastain, 46, applauded Gay, 48 further by calling her the “Oracle.”

Earlier this month, Jonas surprised fans by filing for divorce from Turner, 27, claiming that their four-year marriage was “irretrievably broken.”

A day later, the estranged couple put up a united front when they released a statement on social media.

“After four wonderful years of marriage we have mutually decided to amicably end our marriage,” they wrote in a joint post on Instagram.

“There are many speculative narratives as to why but, truly this is a united decision and we sincerely hope that everyone can respect our wishes for privacy for us and our children.”

However, the good vibes quickly disintegrated when the “Dark Phoenix” star filed court documents earlier this week in which she accused Jonas of the “wrongful detention” of their two daughters.

In the lawsuit, she also claimed the DNCE lead singer had been withholding the passports of Willa, 3, and their 1-year-old daughter, whose name has not been made public, to keep them from going to the UK.

Jonas subsequently slammed the lawsuit, saying it goes against an “amicable co-parenting setup.”
