Joan Rivers loves to speak her mind and we  love to hear her speak. The 79 year old comedienne has made a career making us laugh and ponder life’s idiosyncrasies.Joan has a new book, I Hate Everyone…Starting with Me, that Costco will not carry due to concerns over “offensive material.”


Tuesday, Rivers sat up at Burbank, California Costco pimping the book herself. Surprised that Joan would be at Costco? So was I. All to prove her point I’m guessing.


Wearing sunglasses and holding a megaphone as she stood inside, Rivers signed copies of the publication for a crowd of eager fans. But not long afterward, cops responded to the scene and ordered Rivers to leave.



She did comply and left without charges being filed against her, however the reason she is loved by so many is humor and she did not disappoint getting a couple of good shots at the bulk retail store:

Joan wonders what type of action this  will lead into the future:
