Joan Rivers is the Biggest Hypocrite in the Whole Entire World

Joan Rivers is not funny. She never really has been, basically is a has-been, and her latest remarks about Lena Dunham's weight, of all things, have firmly placedher in "Douchebagsof the Century" category -- you know, the very same one in which Chris Brown, John Mayer, and Kathy Griffin reside. 

Here's what Joan said in a recent interview with Howard Stern:

"[Lena is] sending a message out to people saying it's OK, stay fat, get diabetes, everybody die. Lose your fingers. ... I love that she's funny, I love that she did well ... but don't let them laugh at you physically. ... If you look the way you look, Lena, and that's fine and you're funny, don't say it's okay that other girls can look like this. Try to look better."
 
Wait, wha ...? I'm completely agog. Did Joan Rivers -- the Joan Rivers who so obviously hates herself to the point of making herself unrecognizable with terrible plastic surgery -- really just give Lena Dunham (who's got some of the most realistic expectations of herself and other women of all female Hollywood leads) body confidence advice? Did that just happen? Did she also just refer to Lena as "fat" and tell her to "look better," as if it's any of Joan's business whatsoever what goes on in Lena's mind about Lena's body and, oh right, LENA'S BODY?

Joan Rivers seriously needs to lay off. Like, truly. When you're in the -- ah -- physical position that you are because you so apparently despise aging and real life and basically anything resembling any kind of normalcy, then maybe it's time to just check out of this business altogether, because damn, Joan -- wrong, harsh, and just chock full of complete hypocrisy.

the fact that joan rivers has chosen to work side by side with a fashion TRAIN WRECK in the not in the least talented osbourne girl, but chooses to criticize the ultra talented Lena shows how badly the way too many plastic surgeries have damaged her credibility. Joan has lost it....

Joan Rivers is neither funny nor talented. For the life of me I can't understand Dodge's decision to feature her in their commercials either.

joan regularly makes fun of her own quest to 'look better'. lena chooses to show off her hideous body as if that's some sort of teen 'feminist' statement. are people (and especially comedians) not supposed to make note of that? from the level of offense taken by the writer of this article, i can only assume that she's another fat chick. try to look better, hon. you'll thank me and joan for the advice.

My problem with Lena Dunham isn't her weight, but the way she dresses. Lots of women are much bigger than Lena and they dress so much better than her. I feel like Lena's message to the world is if you're not a size 2 don't even try to look good. She doesn't need to lose a pound. She needs to hire a stylist.

I'm all for self improvement and I believe there are TONS of benefits to eating healthily and exercising.

However, I think it takes a complete lack of class for someone to criticize the physical appearance of another, especially publicly, and to tell them to be less happy with themselves.

I also think that Joan Rivers is the LAST person who should be saying anything to anyone else about body issues, considering that she has essentially mutilated her own face/body out of obvious unhappiness, and unwillingness to accept the truth about herself.

Furthermore, lets say Lena DID take her advice... what then? The next step would be people telling her to get all kinds of surgery etcetera in order to further enhance her appearance. In the process she would lose TONS of respect that she actually has right now.

The world needs LESS Joan river's in it, not more.

Joan Rivers is a disgusting husk of a woman. Lena Dunham is beautiful and funny. Being mean and hateful is always unattractive. Why can't Joan Rivers just die quietly and go away?

Frankly, Joan Rivers isn't funny, she's crude and obnoxious. That said, is it just me or does looking at Joan's face hurt anyone else's feelings?

Joan Rivers, Kelly Osbourne and their "guests" also critize the people walking the red carpet. It is extremely laughable that they are even given the opportunity to judge others looking the way they look.

Joan lost credibility a long time ago. Kelly never had it. Why are we even giving them screentime let alone an article wherein her opinion is even mentioned.

Please, Joan River's has never had credibility and neither does that Kelly Osbourne chick (both of whom judge how anyone else looks, acts, dresses, etc. and are the last people on the planet that should be allowed to do so).

Why do we give them shows? They are not clever or funny. Why do we even give them air time to repeat some dumb comment they make about other's? We should dismiss them altogether and move on.

Joan Rivers is a vile woman, and a poor excuse for a human being. Such a nasty shrew -- she ought to be ashamed of herself!

Many years ago I loved Joan Rivers, I'd stop everything to watch her when she was on TV, Then.....I saw her in person. What a fowl mouthed troll she has turned into. I lost all respect for the woman when she screamed obscenities at the staff and audience of Casino Rama. She needs to retire quietly, and get back under her bridge. She is the last person that should open their mouth about someones appearance. I won't buy anything with that has been hag associated to it.

Maybe the "author" of this item should wait until they have built a successful career that has then lasted for decades before sitting in judgment on Joan Rivers.

At least she has some sort of talent. You have none, sorry.

Totally agree with Sarah Taylor, but I would also like to say, that Joan should be addressing her co-host, Giuliana, who looks anorexic, bulemic and skeletal. My boyfriend saw a picture of her and asked if she was sick and dying or something. Seriously, with all the plastic surgery Joan has had, I think maybe they slipped up on the face and sliced her brain, which might account for her incoherant babbaling.

I keep getting sucked into this site because no one else seems to cover the same topics. But they are so mean-spirited. ALL OF THEM. So negative.

Lena IS fat. She is disgusting looking. But I love Girls and think she's talented (albeit very unpleasant to look at). I give you that Joan isn't much better to look at and keep your lunch down, but I have to give her a pass as plastic surgery used to be "what you do" in her day to keep your career if you were an aging woman. There really is no reason for Lena to flaunt her rolls so extensively on her TV show. I don't think she's sending out a good image to young girls. "Be a muffin-topper. It's okay. Lena Dunham does it and she's famous." No, Joan has a very valid point.

Excellent editorial. Rivers is a snarky old crone who thinks that degrading other people is funny. It's not. I don't know who Lena Denham is, but, bless her heart, she's a better person than Ms. Rivers. There no need for cruel jokes at other people's expense. It's tacky and cruel. I'm glad your website called her out publicly for her mean remarks.

One of the most perplexing mysteries in Hollywood is Joan having a fashion police show when she is the worst dressed person in Hollywood. I'm tired of her complaining about non-skinny people, she is putting nothing positive into the world and in fact makes life harder for other women, their health and self-image.
