Joan Rivers Makes Jokes About Lohan, Hostage Victims

Comedienne Joan Rivers is in hot water after making a few controversial comments about Lindsey Lohan, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus.

When asked by a reporter about Lohan’s recent revelation that she suffered a miscarriage, Rivers didn’t hold back.

“I hope she kept it,” Rivers stated. After Rivers’ daughter Melissa showed her disapproval towards the comment, Rivers kept going.

“Excuse me, who do you think I am,” Rivers quipped. “I was born with a coat hanger in my ear.”

When asked if she thought Lohan would make a good mother, the 80-year-old continued with the harsh comments.

“She would have been diapering the wrong end,” she said laughing.

Lohan wasn’t the only person Rivers had some insensitive words for. During a recent trip to the Today show, Rivers spoke about Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, the two Cleveland women who were held captive in the basement of Ariel Castro’s house for ten years.

When speaking about staying in her daughter’s guest room, Rivers said the two tortured women had it better.

“Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space,” she joked.

Lawyers of Berry and DeJesus came out and deemed the comments as hurtful, but Rivers didn’t feel the need to apologize.

“They got to live rent free for more than a decade,” she said. “One of them has a book deal. Neither are in a psych ward. They’re OK. I bet you within three years one of them will be on Dancing With the Stars.”

When asked about her comments regarding the women who endured brutal and inhumane conditions, Rivers didn’t back down.

“There is nothing to apologize for,” she said defending herself. “I know what those girls went through. It was a little stupid joke. Nothing to apologize for. I made a joke. That’s what I do. Calm down. Calm f***ing down. I’m a comedienne. They’re free, so let’s move on.”

Here’s what Twitter had to say about the comments:

    Pigs have more class than Joan Rivers. She’s disgusting and pathetic.

  • Pitifulpeople

    She is not funny and she knows it. That is why she is trying to say things for shock value to get people to notice her. Little does she know she is notice everytime she shows her “JOKER” looking face. It is really scary. The sad part is she realizes she is a has been.

  • thisizmyname

    They should all attack her daughter Melissa….that’s her Achilles heel. That may shut her up, well at least for a minute.

  • susielyn

    She is a vile & disgusting human being. There is nothing funny about anything she says. It would be nice to see her fashion-type show bounce her out the door, and the media quit talking about her for any reason whatsoever. She calls Princess Di a whiney bitch, now she’s making fun of women held captive for 10 yrs as living rent free. I can’t stand her.

  • Charles Holloman

    I thought they were going to gift us with her death or talk about how the only way her husband could get away from her was to kill himself.

  • Syosset

    “I know what those girls went through.”
    Um, no you don’t Joan. I can’t imagine their 10+ years of hell.

  • auntiegrape

    someone should put that old horse out of her misery and therefore we would all rest a lot better.

  • emmysmom

    She’s vile and I can’t stand listening to her–so I don’t.

  • nursenettie

    We all need to write to the companies who use her as a spokesperson(??person??)
    Her own spouse took his own life.That explains a lot.Maybe she should joke about that.Everybody’s game …Right Joan?If rape’murder of infants,death of babies and torture are funny,maybe suicide is too?

  • guest

    Joan Rivers has no class. We’ve known that for years. Why is that news? Ignore the skank.

  • guest

    My wife stopped shopping on QVC because of Joan Rivers, so I have that to thank her for.

  • Theresa

    I lost any liking I had for her when she insulted Janeane Garofolo – said something like she looked like a pig. Take a look in the mirror Joan.

    • lorelei vondorff

      I agree. She has become a pretty pathetic figure. Hope she gets some enlightenment

  • lorelei vondorff

    I’m German. You sound vile

    • jewhader

      educate yourself

  • WHY IS THIS WOMAN FAMOUS

    When I saw Joan Rivers name trending, the first thought that came to my head was “Oh my gosh please be dead!!” she is so annoying and unfunny its just ridiculous that she is even famous anymore.

  • Rose

    She is the most classless person in the world. I used to kind of like her. I watched several seasons of Joan and Melissa, but this season was so over the top with the porn stars and the other pigs she has on her show, I deleted the whole series. She’s a pig. Melissa seems to enjoy it otherwise she would bow out of the show.

  • Jerseygirl63

    Calm down people. It was a joke, she’s a comedian. Tune in to any one of the late night shows and every celebrity or person in the news is free game. Keep making people laugh Joan. I’m a fan!

  • KELLY BOURLIER

    PAULA DEEN LOST EVERYTHING BECAUSE SHE USED THE FUC**** “N” WORD ALONG TIME AGO AND THIS PIECE OF TRASH CAN GO ON MAKING FUN OF THE 3 GIRLS, LINDSAY LOHAN, ANYONE WHO HAS HAD SOMETHING HAPPEN TO THEM THAT IS UNFORTUNATE WHY DOESN’T QVC OR THE CHANNEL THAT HAS THEIR STUPID FASHION SHOW CANCEL THEM. SHE NEEDS TO BE PUT IN HER PLACE. LET HER KNOW ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. SAY SOMETHING ABOUT HER DAUGHTER OR GRANDSON AND I’M SURE SHE WOULDN’T LIKE IT. THESE PEOPLE HAVE SO MUCH TO DEAL WITH WITHOUT HAVING TO HAVE THIS PIG MAKING FUN OF THEM ON NATIONAL T.V. NO WONDER HER HUSBAND KILLED HIMSELF. HE IS PROBABLY TURNING OVER IN HIS GRAVE OR DRAWER RIGHT NOW. SHE NEEDS ANOTHER MAN IN HER LIFE, IF THERE IS ONE OUT THERE WHO COULD HANDLE HER AND HER BRAINLESS DAUGHTER. WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND. SHE IS SO PAST DUE!

    • KELLY BOURLIER

      I USE UPPER CASE LETTERS BECAUSE IT IS EASIER FOR ME. BUT AS I WAS WRITING MY POST, IT DID NEED CAPITAL LETTERS BECAUSE SHE IS A DOWNRIGHT PIG!!

  • USAFR

    I’d rather watch wallpaper peel rather than listen to this unfunny bitch. Can it, you’re not funny.
