*No one is off limits, not even babies, when it comes to Joan Rivers and her standup.
The comedienne joked about seven-month-old North West, the daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, as part of her latest comedy routine. And she didn’t have anything nice to say about the famous tot.
*Hours after news broke that MSNBC had canceled Alec Baldwin’s short-lived talk show, “Up Late,” in light of the controversy surrounding his latest alleged use of a homophobic slur, comedian Joan Rivers defended the actor’s comments to TMZ.com.
“Everybody just relax,” Rivers said to the camera, before dropping a string of racial epithets directed at every race and sexuality.
“Everybody is either a wop, a nigger, a kike, a chink…,” she began. She didn’t stop until she hit every ethnic group.
She closed by telling every ethnic group to be glad we live in America and to “stop being so uptight.”
“And this [message] goes for the Indians, both dot and feather,” she concluded.
Watch her entire rant below:

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s daughter appeared to suggest the 24-year-old singer should get a ”sense of humor” as she defended Rivers’ tweet blasting Rihanna for saying she still ”loves” her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
Kelly wrote on Twitter: ”W/ the greatest of respect 2 a young lady of whom I love please get a sense of humor @Joan_Rivers paved the way 4 all us opinionated ladies! (sic)”
As previously reported, Rihanna recently explained to Oprah Winfrey that she still has feelings for Brown, who she split from in February 2009 after he assaulted her, saying: ”We love each other and we probably always will.”
Rivers tweeted: ”Rihanna confessed to Oprah Winfrey that she still loves Chris Brown. Idiot! Now it’s my turn to slap her.”
Rihanna then responded, in a message which has now been deleted, saying: ”Wow, you really do get slow when you’re old, huh?”
Joan came back with, ”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! (sic).”
*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.”
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!
