NICE QUIP ABOUT HER VIEWS ON PALESTINE YOU FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT

The comedian Joan Rivers died yesterday. Before doctors even had a chance to salvage her plastic corpse for parts the world's keyboard commandos mobilised to highlight the ironic timing of her demise. 

You see, like a lot of humans on the planet, Joan supported the actions of Israel. Unlike a lot of humans on the planet, she chose to express her support in a pretty shocking manner, to the effect that Palestinians "deserve to be dead" because "they started it".

Just to clear a few things up, I don't agree with Joan in the slightest, however I do approve of the manner in which she aired her feelings. It was outrageous, offensive and designed to provoke the ire of people who disagree with her. She is Joan Rivers after all, you fucking baby. As wild a leap as you may think this is, it was with the same spirit and conviction that she once spoke on feminism, women in comedy, her appearance, her vagina and the expectations society places on females, all subjects that shocked and probably disgusted audiences at one point in time too. All subjects that no other comedienne since has been able to include as effortlessly and acerbically into their act as Joan. 

As hard as people will try to leverage a 60 second TMZ video of Joan ranting at LAX into her tweeted obituary, it won't be the act that will come to define her. When you trailblaze, influence and entertain for as long as Joan Rivers, no amount of online contrarianism can sully your legacy.

The social justice you spew out on your tumblr doesn't mean shit.
