Joan Rivers, Rihanna Embroiled in Twitter Feud
It was a good day for us in the Twitter universe today (Aug. 24). First, Spencer Pratt of MTV’s ‘The Hills’ followed us on the social media site (we’re dumbfounded and excited at the same time), but even better than that? We found out comedian/TV host/author/etc. Joan Rivers got into it with Rihanna on Twitter. Day = made.
So what started this pseudo-feud? Rihanna’s interview with Oprah, of course. In her interview, RiRi admitted that despite everything she had been through with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, she still loved him. “It’s awkward. I still love him,” she said in the interview. “My stomach drops, yes. I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part.” Well … Joan Rivers wasn’t having any of that.
“Rihanna confessed to Oprah Winfrey that she still loves Chris Brown,” read a tweet written by Rivers. “Idiot! Now it’s MY turn to slap her.” Clearly, Rihanna didn’t take too kindly to that, because she responded, “@Joan_Rivers wow you really do get slow when you’re old huh.”
Ri also wrote, “Slap on some diapers,” but Rivers wasn’t tagged, so there’s no way to tell for sure if the second tweet was aimed at the host, but we’re going to go with a “yes.” Also, Rihanna was pretty brave to go up against Joan Rivers. Rivers is the ultimate b—-, and we love her for that.
