Joan Rivers Walks Out on CNN Interview - Watch It Here!

Joan Rivers angrily points her book at the camera while becoming agitated during a nationally televised CNN interview on Saturday (July 5).

The 81-year-old Fashion Police personality was being interviewed by CNN Newsroom host Fredricka Whitfield when a lot of the questions seemed to be criticizing her humor.

“I’m going. I really am going because all you have done is negative,” Joan said. “I’ve made people laugh for 50 years. I am put on Earth to make people laugh. My book is funny. I wear fur that was killed fifteen years ago. I work for animal rights. Stop it with ‘and you do this’ and ‘you’re mean.’ You are not the one to interview a person who does humor, sorry.”

“Off camera, [Rivers] kept her microphone on as she continued to talk and dropped some rather unflattering four-letter words,” the CNN host added later.
