Joan Rivers Protests Costco, Gets Kicked Out
She’s never been one to hold her tongue, so when Costco refused to sell her new book “I Hate Everyone… Starting with Me,” Joan Rivers took action.
The outspoken media personality showed up at the Burbank, California branch of the discount warehouse with copies of the newly-released book to sell yesterday (August 7). She signed autographs for fans and made a huge scene when she moved things from the parking lot to the food court.
Of course, Costco workers alerted the authorities who eventually asked Ms. Rivers to leave, which she did without putting up too much of a fuss.
Afterwards, Joan told press, “Costco, who sells condoms by the pallet, who sells Paula Deen books and – which is not good for their customers’ health – they decided to ban my book. This is a First Amendment violation.”
“This is a store that sells 300 rolls of toilet paper at the same time, and I say any customer that buys 300 rolls of toilet paper deserves a funny book to sit on the toilet and read.”
