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?
