Feud Alert: Joan Rivers Slams Lena Dunham!

It’s been quite a week for older comediennes lashing out at young starlets. First Kathy Griffin threw some may-jah shade at Demi Lovato, and now Joan Rivers is talking some trash on Girls star Lena Dunham:

“[Lena is] sending a message out to people that it’s OK to stay fat and get diabetes,” she told Howard Stern on his radio show. “I’m saying if you look the way you look Lena, that’s fine and you’re funny, but don’t say it’s OK that other girls look like this,” she said, adding, “tell them to try and look better.”

Not exactly mincing words, is she darlings? But then again, Joanie probably wouldn’t have ascended the comedy ladder if she had. I’m going to refrain from weighing in on this one (pun intended) and instead I’ll let you faithful followers voice your opinion.

Do you think that Joan is right? Is Lena basically telling the world that being overweight is a good thing? Or is Joan just being a hater because Lena actually loves herself just as she is?

    Lena is just saying that it’s OK to feel good in your skin, whether you’re overweight or skinny! And I respect her for that, because there is not a lot of women who are happy with their bodies nowadays. Women are not beautiful when their bones are showing, but with curves!

  2. Frances Said:

    So Joan is saying that slicing and dicing your body is healthier than this? At least this woman is real (not fat) and not yoyo dieting, starving herself, or having herself operated on to be the “perfect image.” Being healthy has a different definition for everyone and Joan Rivers doesn’t exactly scream ‘role model’ to me.

    It’s so funny that Joan Rivers is saying anything about anybody ! She’s fake all over (atleast all we can see). She’s a mean, hateful, jealous OLD woman !

    This from a woman who makes a living telling other women that they look horrible. Joan Rivers is disgusting and her opinion shouldn’t mean anything to anyone.

  6. Kelly Said:

    Just because Lena isn’t just skin and bones doesn’t make her fat. Yeah she’s got some meat on her but so what? I feel like girls should look up to Lena for the way she embraces herself.
    Plus, why should we listen to a woman who is made more of plastic than a barbie is?

  7. CRazy Said:

    Joan Rivers is one to talk…And speaking of talking, when Joan Rivers open that nasty trap of hers, her face doesn’t even move. She looks like a hideous side show freak. She’s had more plastic surgery then a 3rd degree burn vicitm and she’s bitching about someone whose not skinny as a rail and doesn’t vomit after eating. Any of these famous (and I use the word famous loosely) people who trash talk others is because they’re jealous of the fame that person has. Joan is a washed up HAS BEEN WHORE!

    everyone is so overweight now. whoever this person is clearly is fat as she is at risk for all the health problems mentioned above. regardless of if people agree or not being overweight, having ‘meat’ on your bones increases the risk of a lot of chronic diseases. does anyone even hear about anorexia anymore? no! y? because being fat is the status quo. both the extreams of body weight thin and obese can be unhealthy. this women clearly has a high BMI so is overweight. joan isnt wrong.

  9. Ally Said:

    Can I just pose a serious question here? WHY. IS. IT. BAD. TO. BE. FAT?! Lena Dunham isn’t even fat, she’s just curvy…like a normal person! If she is comfortable in her own skin, and is happy…who the hell should care? Shaming people for the way they look needs to be banned from society. Lena is beautiful inside and out. FAT DOES NOT EQUAL BAD. And EVERYONE needs to get it through their heads.

  10. Melanie Said:

    Joan is exactly right! It’s not okay for people to think this is the norm. It’s unhealthy and no one is saying she should starve herself, but exercise and proper eating habits are going to make you lean and feel much better in general. The fact that the U.S upped their standards for obese and morbidly obese people to make them feel better should be indication enough that there’s a huge weight problem in that country!!

  11. Salticus Said:

    Wow if Lena is considered obese we have a really warped sense of body image in this contry. None of us know her eating or exercise habits so maybe take a self assessment on your insecurities before commenting on others body image confidence.

    That is the most dumb sh!t I’ve ever heard.

    1.Lena’s not fat/obese. She’s a normal.
    2.Being skinny doesn’t keep you from health problems. Plenty an organ has shut down due to Anorexia and unhealthy habits like OVER exercising and not getting enough nutrition.
    3.Lena’s health is between her and her doctor.
    4.Joan is insecure (as evidenced by her ATTEMPTS at beauty via botched surgeries) and has decided to use it as a living.

    Tearing people down is what insecure people do to feel better about themselves.
