Joan Rivers takes shots at Lena Dunham, Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus and other celebrities in her new book “Diary of a Mad Diva.”

As Gossip Cop previously reported, the sharp-tongued comic disses Kristen Stewart and Angelina Jolie in the book, and new excerpts show that Rivers (not surprisingly) goes after plenty of other famous people, too.

According to passages quoted in the New York Daily News, Rivers calls Dunham the “first fat girl naked on television” and jokes that she wants HBO charged with crimes against humanity if she has to see the “Girls” star’s “ass, boobs or tattoos” again. She wonders if Dunham is free enough to “have her fat ass on display,” why isn’t she “free enough to have a f*cking salad once in a while?”

It’s not the first time Rivers has targeted Dunham over her weight. Elsewhere in “Diary of a Mad Diva,” the comedian writes that Jennifer Aniston has “dated, been cheated on and dumped” by almost every man in Hollywood, and says of Sienna Miller, “What can you buy a woman who has had everyone?”

Rivers implies that Miley Cyrus engaged in incest and jokes that Halloween is the pop star’s favorite holiday because she can knock on doors “posing and saying, ‘Trick?'” The “Fashion Police” host jabs Tyra Banks as a “narcissistic loser” and jokes that Renee Zellweger’s face is so tight the actress “could whisper in her own ear.” We’re sure the book contains lots of similar sentiments. What do you think of Rivers’ comments?
