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

by at .  Updated 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.

Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift wrote a song titled "Bad Blood" about an enemy in the music business. We're pretty sure the subject was Katy Perry.

To complete Joan's analogy. It is as if New York decided to carpet bomb New Jersey in retaliation for mafia violence that originates in Jersey. Hamas is a small terror group in Gaza that not only holds Israel in contempt, but holds their own people hostage. Back to the mafia analogy, Israel is basically calling anyone who pays protection money to Hamas a terrorist sympathizer and bombs them indiscriminately. Do you honestly think schools and hospitals want missiles stored on the premises, or do you think it more likely that a terror group (again, think mafia) threatens violence against a person and their family if they don't do exactly as they are asked? Precisely. It is possible to hate Hamas AND empathize with the dying Palestinians caught in the middle; and those who call that anti-Semitic are simple-minded morons like Joan Rivers.

I agree with Joan.
What part of Hamas has dishonored every cease fire they agreed to honor do Selena and Rihanna not get? Hamas has always precipitated any violence.
