Is It Time for Joan Rivers to Shut Her Awful Mouth Yet?

Does anyone else feel this terrible surge or rage and disappointment whenever Joan Rivers comes up? Yeah? Good, because that can be something that we all have in common right now while we read some excerpts from Joan's new book, "Diary of a Mad Diva." We can all band together in our disgust, and how great is that going to be?

Here's one thing that Joan apparently wrote in her book:

“Many stars only do one thing well. Of course, the best one-trick pony is Kristen Stewart, who got a whole career by being able to juggle directors’ balls.”

Now, see, not only is that unnecessarily mean, it's also not even true. Kristen Stewart has been acting since she was a kid, and obviously her career got huge after "Twilight," which was released a full four years before she was caught having that little affair with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director. Oh, and it's also not that funny. It's mean, false, and not funny. Going great so far, Joan!

Here's another little excerpt:

“No one is allowed to dress up anymore during Award Season. The networks have new decency guidelines, which insist that no more breasts, buttocks or genitalia show. Luckily, because of celebrities like 
Pharrell and his stupid hat, we’ll still be able to see a–holes.”

It doesn't need to be said that we do not make fun of Pharrell in these parts. We simply do not. And even when Joan tries to make fun of someone we don't necessarily love, someone like Paris Hilton, she still comes off as just awful:

“It’s all over the news that Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy to prevent getting cancer. I think Paris Hilton should… step up to the plate and try to prevent STDs. It would be so easy for her. All she would have to do is have her knees fused together.”

Who allowed Joan Rivers to write this mess? And can we get an apology from them immediately?
