I posted this on Facebook the day she passed: I think Joan Rivers was hateful and could be vile in her skits. What once was a funny comic slowly turned in her later years into a bitter, mean spirited and spiteful woman on stage which may have been her persona, at least that’s what I would like to believe. Part of me thinks that she played into what society fed on. Let’s face it most people are shit. They love to see someone be brought down because it makes them feel better about who they are. Not personally knowing her, I’m going to say RIP out of respect for who I hope she was inside. And while at the end of her days her style of comedy evolved into something that wasn’t my cup of tea, she was a mother and grandmother who had family and friends who adored her along with her many, many friends. She may not have been the person she acted like on stage. She may have been an amazing individual and with the longevity of her career, she should be toasted for that.
