Joan Rivers to Rihanna and Selena Gomez: Get Off Drugs and Leave Me Alone!

by at . Comments

Joan Rivers has never been the shy type, but the 81-year-old comedy legend has been sharing her views more openly than ever while promoting her latest book.

While her ruthless jabs are usually reserved for celebrities and their fashion choices, recently Joan has entered the political arena and set her sights on Hamas and Selena Gomez.

That may seem like an odd combination of targets (and it is), but they're not totally unrelated.

Selena tweeted her support for Gaza last week, joining the long list of celebrities who have sided with Palestine in the bloody, ongoing conflict. 

Rivers is staunchly pro-Israel and, consequently, anti-Selena. She shared her views in her typically outspoken fashion during a recent interview on Israeli television:

"Selena, who just came out of rehab who I believe is not a college girl," said Rivers. "Rihanna, who is beautiful but is not the brightest bulb in the lamp, they see pictures of children and they go crazy. I think Israel should start showing pictures of dead puppies, and you'll see these girls turn right around."

She continued, "If America were being attacked by Mexico and one rocket came over, there would not be a Mexico. Hamas, who are terrorists, who are not legal...everyone forgets what we are dealing with here."

"These girls should shut up, put on pretty clothes, and get themselves off of drugs and leave me alone."

As always, you can accuse Joan of just about anything except playing coy.
