Joan Rivers Talks Israeli-Palestinian Conflict And Bashes Media And Selena Gomez In Outragious Rant
TMZ caught footage of Joan Rivers at an airport Friday, and she preceded to go on an rant of epic proportions, defending Israel and lashing out at its critics.
She likened the situation to New York and New Jersey. “Let me just tell you,” she said when asked by a reporter about her reaction to the conflict in Gaza. “If New Jersey were firing rockets into New York, we would wipe them out.”
“And Palestinians, you can not throw rockets and expect people not to defend themselves,” she added.
She then criticized CNN and BBC, saying “How do I know? Because I have been over there. That’s how I know. And I wish the world would know. And BBC should be ashamed of themselves, and CNN should be ashamed of themselves, and everybody stop it already.
Nobody was safe. Not even Selena Gomez
In reaction to Gomez’s pro-Palestine Instagram picture, Joan responded:
“Oh Selena Gomez? Oh yeah that college grad,” she said as she walked away. But then turned around and continued, “Oh well if Selena said that. Let’s see if she can spell Palestinian.”
