Kathy Griffin's feud with Demi Lovato got serious fast!

After Griffin tweeted that Lovato was the "biggest douche celebrity" she'd ever met last month, the sharp-tongued comedian began receiving death threats on the Internet from extreme fans of the singer. Griffin says the threats got so serious that police even got involved.

During an interview with Howard Stern yesterday, Griffin said "the death threats are flowing." Griffin went on to explain the whole "douche" Twitter comment happened because she thought it would be "funny" to try using Siri to tweet messages one night.

"Siri doesn't always interpret everything properly," Griffin told Stern. "I couldn't sleep and I actually went on Twitter and said, ‘I'm going to start tweeting things using Siri but I'm not going to correct any of the spelling.'"

She went on, "So then someone tweeted back saying, ‘Who's the douchiest person you've met?' And Siri interpreted it as Debbie Lovato is a little douche."

Griffin then described some of the death threats Lovato's fans sent her on Twitter. "I will burn your house down c--t," she read, adding that other fans hoped Griffin would be raped, get cancer, be murdered or commit suicide. That's when law enforcement officials stepped in.

"They actually contacted me," Griffin revealed. "Because at that point it goes beyond just Twitter hate, it's actually legit [threats]."

"So police have to get involved and say, Wait a second, there could be a legitimate death threat here," Stern chimed in.

All in all, Griffin said she has no ill feelings towards Lovato, adding, "The point is I have no problem with Demi Lovato, or Debbie as I like to call her, as Siri calls her."
