Joan Rivers Likens Herself to Rosa Parks

Joan Rivers

Few comedians have had careers as long as Joan Rivers. The legendary funny-woman and talk show host has made fun of Hollywood's elite, political dignitaries, and even herself—all in the name of humor. Yet, while standing outside a Costco in Los Angeles, Rivers blurred the line between the LOLs and SMHs when she boycotted the supermarket chain for refusing to sell her new book. Costco chose not to sell Rivers' book, I Hate Everyone… Starting With Me, because of a swear word printed on the outside jacket. After locking herself to a shopping cart, the E! Network talk show host took to the airwaves (and her own film crew) to let the people know that she will be heard.

Armed with a megaphone, the controversial comedianne decide to sell her books the old fashioned way, through outlandish remarks. "I am the Rosa Parks of White people," Rivers shouted out through her microphone in between comparing the superstore to Nazi Germany. In addition to that, she also claimed to be the Anne Frank of Beverly Hills.

Perhaps it's time for Ms. Rivers to take a seat somewhere.
