Joan Rivers Israel Interview


Joan Rivers went off on Selena Gomez and Rihanna in a new rant about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The controversial comedienne was being interviewed via satellite by a news station in Israel when she was asked about the stars’ seemingly pro-Palestinian comments on the war in Gaza.

“Selena Gomez, who just came out of rehab, who I believe is not a college girl, Rihanna, who is beautiful and not the smartest bulb in the lamp — they see pictures of [dead] children and they go crazy,” exclaimed Rivers.

“They’re not listening,” she continued. “If America were being attacked by Mexico and one rocket came over, there would not be a Mexico.” Rivers declared, “These girls should shut up, and put on pretty clothes, and get themselves off of drugs.”

The “Fashion Police” co-host had some criticism for Israel, too, however, arguing that they’re losing the war on the public relations front as Hamas showcases photos of civilian deaths. “The wrong people, the dumb people, are buying into it,” she complained.

Rivers went on to make an incendiary comment about the Palestinian people, angrily saying (but probably joking) that they all should get nose jobs. “Because once somebody’s had a nose job, they won’t fight, because they’re scared the new nose will get broken,” she said. “There will be peace in the Middle East.”
