Joan Rivers Storms Off CNN
It seemed as though Fredricka Whitefield was having fun with Joan Rivers, but Joan Rivers wasn’t having fun back. Whitfield thought Rivers was joking or, at least, stunting, by walking off. But, apparently, the comedian, who pierces the skin of others, is rather think-skinned herself.
The interview, which aired on Saturday, shows Whitfield asking Rivers questions about her wearing fur on the cover of her book, as well as her infamous criticizing of celebrity fashion on the red carpet. Animal rights activists had protested Rivers’ book event at a Barnes & Noble last week.
“I’m going, I’m really going. All you’ve done is negative. I’ve made people laugh for fifty years,” she reacts to Whitfield aggressively. “My book is funny!” she then adds. Meanwhile, Whitfield looks bemused by Rivers’ anger as the comedian pulls her earpiece out and walks off.
Arguably, this is the most exciting thing that’s happened on CNN in quite some time.
