Television host and fashion critic, Joan Rivers was on CNN recently, being interviewed about her new book. However, that interview came to a screeching halt when she was asked about wearing fur.

CNN’s Fredericka Whitfield had been commenting and questioning some of Rivers’ work, which includes making light-hearted jokes about very serious news stories and being overly critical of celebrity fashion. Rivers had a quick answer for everything and brushed off the seriousness of the questions, but when the topic of wearing fur came up (Rivers poses in animal furs on the cover of her new book), Rivers got a little heated.

“Are you wearing leather shoes?!” asked Rivers.

“Yes!” replied Whitfield.

“Then shut up!” snapped Rivers, who went on to say that she “doesn’t want to hear this nonsense” from people who wear leather and eat animals. “Come to me with a paper belt and I’ll talk to you,” she said.

Whitfield explained that, although she herself is not an animal rights activist, Rivers’ fur wearing has been an issue before and it’s something she’s heard in press conferences many times. Whitfield tried to get a clear answer from Rivers, but Rivers had heard enough. She announced that the interview was too “negative,” then pulled out her earpiece and left the cameras. (Whitfield reported after the interview that Rivers’ mic was still on and many expletives were heard as she stormed off.)

Check out the interview below and let us know: Was the interview too negative, or was Joan Rivers dodging the question?

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
