Joan Rivers is once again under fire over controversial remarks.

Victor Willis — the traffic cop in the 70s disco group, The Village People — is ticked at the 81-year-old comedienne for allegedly using “racist” remarks about Justin Bieber.

The brouhaha started last week when Rivers slammed Bieber on E!'s Fashion Police.

“That little b***ch just gets on my nerves,” said Rivers about Bieber before looking straight at the camera, directing her next remarks to the Baby singer. “You are not a big black thug, you are just like your shoes – ordinary and completely white.”

The studio audience and her fellow fashion panelists, including Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic, thought the comment was HI-larious. Willis, on the other hand, did not find a shred of humor in the comment.

So Willis took his beef to his Twitter account, tweeting:

The disco singer also took his gripe to his official Facebook page and posted a link of Rivers' Fashion Police remarks on the watchdog website, GossipCop.

We all know this isn't the first nor will it likely be the last time Rivers sticks her foot in her mouth in the name of comedy.

A few weeks ago, she referred to First Lady Michelle Obama as “Blackie O” and used the “N-word” during an appearance on HuffPost Live to illustrate that “the world is so PC it’s stupid.”
