Joan Rivers, known for off-the-cuff remarks on TV live shows, died on Thursday, September 4. She was aged 81 and ran into controversy last month for her rude remarks on Palestinians, which she regretted immediately.
She was among the first generation of comedians who entered the male-dominated arena of late-night talk shows and set right many celebrities who never dressed properly for red carpet events.
She collapsed on Thursday after a visit to her doctor for a routine check-up but collapsed with a heart attack. Her daughter Melissa and other family members and friends were at her side when she brethed her last.
Known for her famous TV talk-show “Can we Talk” Rivers carried on with the show for over a decade, a long time in any TV anchoring live programs in the US. From Elizabeth Taylor to newcomers into Hollywood, she never spared anybody when it comes to ridiculing or criticising them.
Rivers said less IQ Palestinians “deserve to be killed” and immediately backtracked her statement supporting Cruz views on Palestinians saying war is bad.
Comedian Joan Rivers told TMZ that the genocide in Hiroshima is much bigger. She said the 2,000 Palestinians killed so far is nowhere near the genocide levels. “Oh my God! Tell that to the people in Hiroshima… Good. Good. When you declare war, you declare war. They started it. We now don’t count who’s dead. You’re dead, you deserve to be dead. Don’t you dare make me feel bad about that.
“They were told to get out. They didn’t get out. You don’t get out, you are an idiot. At least the ones that were killed were the ones with low IQs.”
