Joan Rivers vs. Baby North West?!
We all know 80-year-old comedienne Joan Rivers can take it a little too far sometimes. Her latest routine however, went WAY overboard. Joan had a stand-up comedy show in LA on Friday, and decided to take a jab at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's infant daughter, North West. Apparently she ran into Kim K. and Nori at the E! offices one day. On stage she said, "That baby is ugly! I've never seen a six-month-old so desperately in need of a waxing!"
I understand that comedians poke fun at celebs and their lives, but making fun of a child, let alone an infant is crossing the line. It's one thing for a grown adult to be scrutinized, but a baby?! C'mon Joan, really?? I get it, celebrities are in the spotlight, and therefore their children are in the spotlight, but Kim and Kanye have done a pretty good job at keeping Nori under wraps as best as possible.
Personally, I like Kim Kardashian, although I definitely don't agree with everything she does. Kanye on the other hand, has really been getting on my nerves lately. I love his older music, but his new music isn't that great && over the past few years he's become so narcissistic!! Regardless of how I feel about her parents, I actually think Nori is a pretty cute baby. I don't care if Joan really does think North West is hideous, she should have never said it. Children should always be off limits, whether you like the parents or not. There are some things that are better left unsaid and this is definitely one of those things.
Joan isn't the prettiest person on the planet, not to mention her own daughter isn't the epitome of beauty. Joan apparently thought that she was so ugly that she had to go get an entirely new face. Obviously she has some self-confidence issues herself. I understand two wrongs don't make a right, but I'm pointing out the obvious here. These are also grown adults, not a minor child that I'm talking about.
Overall I think that this went way too far and Joan should know better. It takes a heartless bully to attack an infant, and I don't care who the baby's parents are, no child deserves that.
What do you think about Joan's latest act? Let me know in the comments below!!
