After the remarks, Napolitano - who is on a trip to Germany - cancelled a meeting with the SPD leader, Peer Steinbruek, and said the politician's comments were "completely inappropriate".
Referring to Napolitano's action, Grillo - considered a controversial figure for his populist, anti-austerity views - wrote in his blog Thursday: "In these years he (Napolitano) has been criticized for many choices, in my views mistaken, but yesterday in Germany I saw, at the end of his mandate, my president of the Republic. An Italian who stood up straight.
