Bit late to the Joan Rivers vs. Adele nastiness but I thought I’d throw my little contribution at the growing pile of commentary.
Those disparaging Joan Rivers’ appearance in response to her personal attack on our beloved Adele have completely missed the point.
Acceptance. Love. Kindness.
My Mum always used to say to us as kids “If you do it back, you’re just as bad” and my Mum is NEVER* wrong. (*ask my Dad)
Clearly Ms Rivers has her own acceptance issues. The irony in her making fun of someone else’s appearance isn’t lost.
She is also a comedian trying to do her job and make people laugh. We know that fat jokes are not a new thing.
But are they funny? Nope. Will they stop? Only if we stop laughing.
