Jan 21, 2005 | 2:52pm EST

Bosses at TV network E! Entertainment have been forced to apologize for callous remarks comedienne Kathy Griffin made about child star Dakota Fanning on the red carpet at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards.

Outrageous Griffin upset American TV viewers when she joked about the 10-year-old I Am Sam star checking into rehab "for drugs and alcohol" during the pre-ceremony program.

E! chiefs decided it was best to apologize after they were flooded with complaints.

In a statement, they said, "This insensitive comment was not true and it was spoken in jest."
