Joan Rivers Calls Kim Kardashian’s Baby North “Ugly” — Is That Too Far?
Wow — we guess there’s no target too precious for Joan Rivers’ barbed tongue! The outspoken comedian has skewered just about every celebrity under the sun, including Jennifer Lawrence. And everyone loves Jennifer Lawrence. But we think Joan may have officially crossed the line when she lowered her bar to celebs under the age of 1 and called Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby North “ugly.”
On the January 17 episode of E!’s Fashion Police, Joan commented on the Kardashians’ recent visit to the E! studio. She even offered some equal opportunity criticism of the 7-month-old child saying, “That baby is ugly… I’ve never seen a six-month-old so desperately in need of a waxing.”
Kim was recently accused of either waxing or photoshopping Nori’s brows, something she vehemently denies, given how young Nori is. Look, we know it’s comedy and all, but we still think Joan’s comments were in poor taste. It’s bad enough Nori is growing up in a fish bowl, but one day she’ll be able to understand mean-spirited comments like that.
Not only that, but her “joke” wasn’t even all that funny — or accurate. Think what you will of Kim and her fiancé, but so far almost everyone but Joan agrees they made one adorable baby.
What do you think — did Joan go too far, or do we need to lighten up?
