Sometimes I think Joan Rivers just says things to get a rise out of people. And by sometimes, I mean all the times. Her latest attack on Jennifer Lawrence is not only uncalled for, it’s just plain rude.
It seems Joan got her panties in a bunch over Jennifer’s recent comments about the show Fashion Police. While promoting her latest movie, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the Academy Award winner said, "There's shows like the Fashion Police and things like that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on things."
The 23-year-old actress continued:
... they put values in all the things that are wrong and that it's OK to point at people and call them 'ugly' and call them 'fat' and they call it 'fun' and 'welcome to the real world.'
Joan Rivers was having none of that attitude!
It’s funny how Jennifer Lawrence loved @E_FashionPolice during Awards Season when we were complimenting her every single week...— Joan Rivers (@Joan_Rivers) November 12, 2013
But now that she has a movie to promote, suddenly we’re picking on all those poor, helpless actors.— Joan Rivers (@Joan_Rivers) November 12, 2013
WAIT! It just dawned on me why Jennifer Lawrence fell on her way up to the stage to get her Oscar. She tripped over her own arrogance.— Joan Rivers (@Joan_Rivers) November 12, 2013
Newsflash for Ms. Rivers: There’s a difference between being complimented on your looks and saying thank you, and believing that that’s the most important thing there is about you.
It seems like Joan is the arrogant one, what with her ego all busted up over JLaw not fawning over her show just because she said she was pretty once or twice.
Do you think Joan Rivers' criticism of Jennifer Lawrence is valid?
