Feel Better, Joan
damn right, feel better, joan.
maybe it’s the internet’s fault because we can hide behind usernames or we’ve just naturally evolved into a bunch of assholes, but it saddens me that people are openly talking about celebrating joan’s possible impending death because they hate her. what for? why do you hate her? because she’s outspoken, because her act is to talk shit about other people, to make fun of them? gee, what’s her job again? oh, right - she’s a COMEDIENNE. that’s what they do. do you people honestly think that when joan is talking with people as herself, she deliberately makes fun of them, is mean to them? no. it’s her act. it’s her schtick. yes, she’s outspoken, she says outrageous things. so what? she’s got bigger balls than most - she’s a legend in her business and never gave up in a business that was (and sadly still probably is, though we’ve come a long way, baby) dominated by men. i’m too lazy to be a really effective feminist, but this just pisses me off. show some g.d. respect, already.
if you want to see a real side of joan, i urge you watch joan, the season 2, episode 4 of louie. when louie meets joan rivers, they talk about their line of work and she schools him on being better at what he does - not on stage because she knew that wasn’t her business - but offstage. she was the most real and down to earth i’d ever seen her and even so, she was still funny as shit.
she’s lived a long, full life, but i still want to see her recover and see what you assholes said about her so she can laugh at your pettiness and cruelty.
QUIT BEING MEAN, WORLD. BE NICER FOR PISS’S SAKE.
