Joan Rivers created controversy even in death last night when the Oscars gave her the ultimate snub. She was left out of the award show’s “In Memoriam” montage, which included stars Robin Williams, Maya Angelou and Mike Nichols.
Rivers, who died last September at 81 from complications following routine surgery, was always controversial, and never a slave to political correctness.
How would Joan have reacted to being bounced from the Oscars red carpet?
