  1. “We don’t apologize for a joke. We are comics. We are here to make you laugh. If you don’t get it, then don’t watch us.” With all this seemingly overbearing political correctness and people with ultra-thin skin, I thought she was a breath of fresh air πŸ™‚ RIP Joan Rivers.

      1. Whether you know this or not, your response to my “feminism” article meant a lot to me, I am just starting out and comments are all I know that I’m not making a complete fool of myself. Besides the fact that your blog is very interesting and I love it. Thank you for that.

      2. You’re welcome and absolutely no, you are not making a fool of yourself, far from it, even with no comments. But I can see they are gaining in the right direction. So pleased. πŸ™‚

  2. Was this not the woman who said Palestinians deserved to die because they had low IQs a month ago? Well, anyway, I wasn’t much acquainted with her work, I’m British, but R.I.P. Cause, I was bought up to NEVER rejoice or justify anyone’s death.

    1. Yes I was trying to recall what she had said recently, but if I remember reading the full statement correctly she said the media had focused on the salacious bits and left all the explanation out…something like that.

      1. Is there an explanation for when someone says people deserve to die? An entire population of people? That lady built her entire career based on insults and negative, “humorous” criticism. Nevertheless, I was taught to always respect people’s death, no matter who they are and what they’ve done so may she rest in peace. If only she felt this respect towards other people.

      2. You’re telling me! πŸ™‚ It’s a great tool though to be able laugh at the most serious things. Totally changes one’s outlook and I don’t think it necessarily has to mean disrespect.

      3. I understand where you’re coming from, truly. But I don’t think it’s always a good thing, there’s always a time to crack a joke or two but there’s a time to be serious and when you’re “funny” then, it’s a problem. I suppose that’s the reason people find her insulting.

      4. I think it also depends who you are and where you are in your life. Perhaps at one time I too would have said ‘there’s a time and a place,’ these days I’m letting go of stuff that I believe we just place too much significance, ritual and PC-ness on. For me today humour is good whenever and as long as it is actually funny.
        As that is MY choice I would not crack a joke at someone else’s funeral as I suspect I’m in a small group – although I’d love to hear one!

      5. Meh, the entire video was of her justifying the deaths of a 1.8 million people stuck in a tiny strip 7 miles wide and 23 miles long because the had ‘low IQs’ since their government, not them, seemed to be firing home-made, largely ineffective ‘rockets’ at their occupiers-I watched it, I read her statement afterwards, nothing could possibly have been taken out of context.

        They all backtrack but what she said was absolutely clear and ironically indicative of someone unaware of perspective. Furthermore, she didn’t apologise for it in her statement afterwards-just some vague rhetoric about ‘praying for peace.’

        However, I’m not rejoicing in her death like some people were on twitter, which was frankly disgusting. We all need to start seeing each others humanity, even if we our views differ ideologically. So yes, R.I.P to Joan Rivers and R.I.P to the 1500 Palestinians civilians and 4 Israeli civilians killed recently.

        P.S: Hope I don’t come across as over zealous, I’m really passionate about politics (as you can see form my YES Scotland badge)!! xxx

      6. No I’m huge fan of passionate people. I would love you to school me on the whole Scotland thing. I really have not had the time to ‘get it.’ So if you can – as in what are the benefits and negatives on both sides for the UK and Scotland, and keep it short and sweet I’d love it.

        Secondly I would have to bow to your having read and watched in full what she said. I glanced over it and it seemed to make sense at the time and I can’t ‘argue’ for what I don’t know.

  3. She lived a full life at 81 and she kind of knew the end was near. I think she would rather us remember her for being full of life than to spend months or even years in the vegetative state….” Every day in our life is history being written’. Rest in Peace, a fashion police has gone home! Adieu

  4. I really liked her as a person, in addition to her work on television and movies. She will go down as a woman that I had never met, but wished that I had.

  5. She was a great talent. She will be missed. If you’re interested in going to my blog in raulconde001.com. you’re most welcome. I wrote a short brief biography of Joan Rivers. It’s your choice. πŸ™‚
