Joan Rivers Insults Blacks, Gays And Everyone In Between In Support Of Alec Baldwin

joan-tmzAmerica’s original sweetheart, Joan Rivers, responded to the news of MSNBC firing noted diva-best-believa Alec Baldwin the only way Joan Rivers could: by openly insulting every racial and ethnic group she could possibly think of in under 30 seconds.

Joan’s an old hat at this so when TMZ caught up with her, the legendary harridan was able to fire off six epithets, slandering the Italians, the Blacks, the Jews, the Chinese, the gays and of course, the Irish. That’s nothing compared to her glory days — women have gained the right to vote since then — but still an admirable number. You know, in a comically racist way:

Joan: What do I think about Alec [Baldwin]? Everybody just relax. Everybody’s either a w*p, a n###a, a k!ke, a ch%nk, a [email protected], a m$ck — everybody’s something so why don’t we all just. Calm. Down.

TMZ: And we should be thankful for you.

Joan : Be thankful that we’re all living in America and stop everybody getting so damn uptight! And this goes for the Indians — both dot and feather!

Before they part, the TMZ guy and Joan wish each other a Happy Chanukah, which is a nice, warm ending to this profanity-laden lesson in understanding. Sure she was making a point, albeit in an extreme way, but when Joan Rivers calls you a c^cksucking f&g, you know it’s coming from a place of love. Happy Chanukah everybody.

  • balehead

    naturally all the gays will flip out….

  • balehead

    She gets it!! Joan Rivers rocks!!!

  • Caine

    Yay Joan. She is totally right.

  • Degas

    Yeah, she gets it, and it’s funny when she says it, but not so much when it comes from: Anger, your neighbor, strangers, people on the street, kids in the school yard, the college campus, an office cubicle, an elevator, a restaurant, your own family, a friend, an in-law, a bar, a club, or anywhere else. Yeah, we all are something, but hopefully something beyond a derogatory name.

  • robirob

    Of course Joan Rivers takes Alec Baldwin’s side. Her entire career is based on calling other people bad names. She just calls it a comedy routine.

  • avesraggiana

    “….so why don’t we all just. Calm. Down. “. Perfect. She gets it.
    What Alec Bakdwin said was truly uncalled for and quite unfortunate, but I don’t believe it warranted his losing his show.

  • 2eo

    @avesraggiana: Actually his tirade was just one of a series of events, including loudly mocking a woman with cancer and about 10 other verbal confrontations with staff.

  • balehead

    All the Republicans are saying “See, I warned you!!”….

  • Kieran

    Right now Mel Gibson is probably saying, “Where was this Jew hag when I needed her?”

  • Spike

    If it’s ok, why wasn’t she quoted correctly? And why, if I were to type w*p, n###a, k!ke, ch%nk, [email protected], m$ck as they are correctly spelled, the comment will be censored in violation of the Queerty Comment policy?

    Quite the double standard. Either condemn her statement or change your policy.

  • zrocqs

    @balehead: Let ’em. It’s a weightless “argument” that only resonates with others who are less than bright. And those who choose to expound will sound daft: “Obama’s coming for your guns! How will we protect our public restrooms?!?”

    Poor right-wing. Can’t help themselves….yippie!….

  • 2eo

    @zrocqs: Generally you can look at the standard of poster to determine the correct action, if the likes of Balehead and others significantly lesser people love it then it is wrong.

  • Caleb in SC

    “America’s original sweetheart” — Yes, George Washington found her very amusing.

  • Sweet Boy

    Being called a “c*cksucking f*ggot” by a senile c*nt is no offense at all

  • Cam

    Yes Joan, everybody IS something. The problem is, Baldwin called the other guy a faggot, using it as an insult.

    Then again, this bitch doesn’t even want her writers to get paid so I guess as long as it doesn’t effect her it’s unimportant.

  • Caleb in SC

    @Cam: Yes, Sir!

  • Cagnazzo82


    …Alec Baldwin has probably never been on the receiving end of any of those names.

  • wiredpup

    Sorry but why is she still considered a gay icon? She hasn’t been funny since the 70’s.

  • MikeE

    @wiredpup: 1870s

  • jckfmsincty

    She needs to retire.

  • KDub

    She’s absolutely right. Folks need to stop taking themselves so seriously all the time. And we all know she wasn’t insulting anyone. Way to sensationalize!

  • KDub

    @Cam: So you’re mad about Baldwin dropping F-bombs, yet you feel free to call women bitches? Hypocritical much?

  • 2eo

    @KDub: You’re not clever enough to goad that correctly. Nice try, you get a D- for application though.

  • Dxley

    @2eo: Buuuurrrrrrnnnnnn!!!!!

  • Franco C.

    I don’t agree with what Baldwin said, though I kinda understand what Rivers is getting at. Seems odd to me that so many deplore homophobia but then come on this thread to make ageist comments about someone they don’t know.

  • hotshot70

    Good for Joan. She doesn’t apologize for anything, and shouldn’t. Heck, we could make up a word and someone would step up claiming its mean!

  • Cagnazzo82

    @hotshot70: No, actually you can make up a word, and kick the crap out of someone while calling them that word, and/or killing them.

    Then we’ll say ‘it’s mean’.

  • keepcalm

    Joan is a Republican, so I’m not surprised she said this. She’s one of the most unfunny, hypocritical loons around. She will blow a fuse if you dare make fun of her daughter. Her daughter was even off-limits at her roast.

    Joan is mentally ill. She can’t stop chopping up her face. Stop defending a crazy person.

    She needs to stop stealing other’s material too.

  • keepcalm

    @KDub: She’s not right, and you’re too dimwitted to figure that out.

  • keepcalm

    @avesraggiana: I bet you wouldn’t be saying that if he used the N word.

  • keepcalm

    @balehead: No, bonehead.

  • vocodr

    Good for Joan! She’s right!

  • jonjct

    gay ppl better check yourselves. you want everybody to revere and respect you for being you, yet you bash and ridicule Joan Rivers because she is old. in the playground of life you guys are bullies.

  • KDub

    @2eo: Clever enough to make you reply…

    @keepcalm: She is right, and you’re too sensitive to figure that out.

  • iMort

    Always have and always will love me some Joan Rivers!

  • Cagnazzo82

    @RiBrad: I love the logic being thrown around in this comment section.

    “Hey guys! I know your problem better than you do! Why? Because I DONT’ HAVE TO DEAL WITH THEM! So deal with it!”

    That’s basically Joan River’s argument.

    “Alec Baldwin has never been in a position of being marginalized ever. Therefore, you people need to stop being so sensitive about words that might’ve been used against you to marginalize you! Screw your problems, I’ve never had them, so why should I care about you?”

    Totally absurd and illogical.

  • viveutvivas

    She’s a trip. The most naturally funny comedian in the country.

  • AuntieChrist

    @wiredpup: were you even born yet? She’s 80 years old still working and when you get to be that age you can say anything you like.And she is still funny on fashion police.
