Today's Evil Beet Gossip
Joan Rivers

Surprise! Joan Rivers is an asshole!

Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers is so old and out of touch now that the only way she can stay relevant is by continuing to offend people under the guise of “comedy” – with the funniest part being that no one’s laughing. I’m all for dark humour, observational humour that can be offensive, etc, but Joan Rivers just talks shit that’s so outlandish, it can’t even be poorly disguised as a joke.

Her latest foray into the world of tastelessness (I know, I know – she’s the president there) was in saying that the two women who escaped from the Cleveland house they were abused and held captive in last year should “lighten up” because, you know, free rent and all that. LOL?

From TMZ:

The women are pissed at Joan’s comments on the “Today” show this week … when she talked about her daughter’s guest room, saying “Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space.”

The women — Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus — came out swinging, saying they were shocked and disappointed at the “hurtful” comment.

Joan tells us she WON’T apologize, telling them to lighten up, adding,  “One of them has a book deal.  Neither are in a psych ward.  They’re ok.  I bet you within 3 years one of them will be on Dancing with the Stars.”

And Joan says, plenty of comedians have done schtick about tragic events like Hitler’s terror and the sinking of the Titanic.  Joan says, “The TV the guy gave them must not have had SNL.”

Jesus Christ. What a disgusting human being.

Joan Rivers and Jennifer Lawrence Are In a Legit Feud

Everyone loves Jennifer Lawrence, right? She’s great! She’s zany and awkward and has no problem talking about her bowel movements on national television! Oh, and she’s a really great actress, too. But while the nation might be ready to make JLaw their new BFF (as they have been for a few years running, now), there’s one person who’s fighting the opposite corner: Joan Rivers.

Basically, in case you forgot this bullshit, Jennifer Lawrence once said that Rivers’ Fashion Police promotes the wrong values – something she’s been quite outspoken on basically her entire career. Rivers didn’t take too kindly to anyone slamming her nothing of a show and called JLaw “arrogant”, which was sorta the end of that… or so you would think!

Actually, Joan is talking about Jennifer AGAIN, saying it’s her NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION to get Jennifer Lawrence to “grow up”… and embrace snarking on other people’s outfits? I don’t really get her point, but here’s the quote:

“My New Year’s resolution is [ensuring] Jennifer Lawrence grows up and realizes how lucky she is and calms down.

“I love that she’s telling everyone how wrong it is to worry about retouching and body image, and meanwhile, she has been touched up more than a choir boy at the Vatican. Look at her posters. She doesn’t have a nose, she has two holes.

“She just has to learn, don’t talk if you’re doing it.”

Well, to be fair, Joan Rivers, Jennifer Lawrence isn’t a magazine editor and gets no say as to how and when she’s airbrushed or touched up on magazine shoots. Second of all, you’re basically telling her not to have any morals or standards in life and embrace fakeness, as you clearly have with your 9,000 plastic surgeries. Why don’t you “grow up” and embrace aging naturally?

I’m not saying Jennifer Lawrence is perfect or faultless or anything of the sort, but I feel like Joan needs to get a hobby. No one’s gonna join the JLaw hate train with you, lady… except maybe others who are just as bitter.

…And Now Joan Rivers Is Using Homophobic and Racist Slurs

joan rivers

Joan Rivers has something to say about everything, even when her opinion is irrelevant and unasked for. That being said, none of us should be surprised that she felt the need to speak out in what I think was supposed to be defense of Alec Baldwin and his recent MSNBC firing over his use of homophobic slurs. I suppose Joan felt she should fight fire with fire, so when talking to TMZ, she went off on a rant that included using the words “nigger”, “chink” and “fairy”. Uh… WHAT?

I’ve always hated Joan Rivers and think she has zero idea of what’s supposed to be funny. “Shock” comedians don’t do anything for me – you’re not edgy or hilarious because you’re further marginalizing a group that’s already discriminated against. There is nothing appealing about that at all, nor is there anything appropriate about it. I know she’s an 80-year-old woman, but I sort of wish someone would walk by and bitch slap her right across the face. Not that violence is going to solve anything, I realise, but holy shit this makes my blood boil.
