Joan Rivers Calls Rihanna an "Idiot" For Loving Chris Brown
When Oprah flew to Barbados to interview Rihanna, the women must have known that the questions and answers exchanged between them were going to cause quite a reaction among viewers and fans. Most importantly, Oprah asked the question that everyone has been dying to know – does Rihanna still love Chris Brown? When she admitted to it, when she agreed that he may have been the love of her life, it was almost like a collective gasp could be heard around the world.
The singer has had to deal with the backlash over her honesty since many people feel that she shouldn’t have any feelings except hate for Brown who admitted to assaulting her back in 2009. At the time, pictures emerged of her face, black and blue, bruised and bloody from being beaten. Since then, she’s reinvented herself, even established herself as a survivor of sorts but the speculation about the continued relationship between Brown and Rihanna has raged on.
Some have decided to be open with their criticism of Rihanna’s revelation, accusing her of being a poor example for other women who are also in abusive relationships.
One vocal opponent has been Joan Rivers who tweeted: "Rihanna confessed to Oprah Winfrey that she still loves Chris Brown. Idiot! Now it's MY turn to slap her."
Rihanna, naturally, wasn’t going to just let the 79-year-old comedienne just get away with saying that. She fired back: "@Joan_Rivers wow u really do get slow when you're old huh?"
That message was eventually deleted but Rihanna did follow up with: "Slap on some diapers"
Rivers tried to defend her words by saying she just wants the best for Rihanna and then added: "Honey, @Rihanna, everyone knows: If he hit you once, he'll hit you again. Read the statistics. PS – Love to have you on Fashion Police!”
Well, you can’t say Rivers has lost any of her spark as she’s aged!
