*Oh man, a hailstorm of criticism poured down on Rihanna after she revealed that she still loves Chris Brown, in a candid interview with ‘Queen’ Oprah.

Among the haters was comedian and plastic surgery extraordinaire Joan Rivers.

She totally instigated a Twitter war (come on Joan, you’re too old for that), bashing the singer.

“Rihanna confessed to Oprah Winfrey that she still loves Chris Brown,” Rivers tweeted. “Idiot! Now it’s MY turn to slap her.”

Yikes!

So RiRi, in all her Bahamian attitude, fired back.

“@Joan_Rivers wow u really do get slow when you’re old huh?” Rihanna tweeted, later deleting the message. “Slap on some diapers,” she added

Joan appeared to clean it up a bit with a less hostile response.

“Honey, @Rihanna, everyone knows: If he hit you once, he’ll hit you again,” she tweeted. “Read the statistics. PS – Love to have you on Fashion Police!
