Joan Rivers Left Out Of Oscars 2015 Memoriam & Sparks Twitter Outrage
The legendary comedian wasn’t the only one not included, Elaine Stritch didn’t not make it into the segment either.
Afterwards, many of the viewers took to social media to voice their unhappiness over Joan‘s omission from the segment.
Though Joan never won an Oscar, she was a huge presence at the star-studded show year after year until her death last year.
Joan Rivers should've been in that "In Memoriam" segment, @TheAcademy.

Omitting Joan Rivers from that in memoriam was genuinely disrespectful.

I know I'm friends with the right people when my newsfeed is full of outrage that Joan Rivers & Elaine Stritch weren't included in Memoriam.
