Joan Rivers is absolutely dreadful and a total asshole (sorry, no, she’s not funny) and makes a living off of offending people these days. It’s not cool, and clearly some people aren’t happy with the shit that comes out of her mouth – like, for instance, the fact that she used a transphobic slur when describing Michelle Obama this past week. So, during an interview on CNN, anchor Fredericka Whitfield called her out on it and told Joan that she and her Fashion Police co-stars are “very mean”.
That’s tame criticism, right? Not in Joan’s eyes! She got so pissed off, she retaliated and then walked out of the interview.
Joan does have a good point that like, a lot of the people she talks about are rich as hell and probably don’t care what Joan Rivers (who has had more plastic surgery procedures than there are surgeons to do them) has to say. And yes, we all talk shit about celebrities to our friends or family. However, I take issue with some of the more outlandishly hurtful shit she says. Some of it is outright disgusting and she tries to pass if off as humour, so I’m not with it. I do agree that anything can be funny, but it has to come from a good place, and she just seems more hateful than anything else.
