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.
Her rants supporting Israel made headlines when she said that Palestinians in Gaza “deserve to be dead,” and then exploded when a TMZ reporter pushed her hot buttons.
How would Joan have reacted to being bounced from the Oscars red carpet?

Why was @joanrivers cut out of the #Oscars ? Oversight or beef? And in other news #JohnLegend and #Common were perfect.
