A few months ago, TLC’s Chilli spoke openly about the need for folks to be held accountable when they take shots at celebrity children. While the famous parent in the spotlight is prepared for criticism, it’s not something a young person, who has nothing to do with how their parents are or what they do, should have to deal with. Still, people joke about celebrity kids, and even worse, a comedienne like Joan Rivers thinks it’s funny to call 7-month-old North West “ugly.”
In a stand-up show at The Saban Theater in LA on Friday, according to Radar Online, Rivers decided to take a jab at baby North. She explained that Kim and North had been in the E! offices recently, and since Rivers works in the same offices as one of the hosts of Fashion Police on E!, she had the chance to see both mommy and daughter.
“That baby is ugly… I’ve never seen a six-month-old so desperately in need of a waxing.”
Radar Online claims that she did garner some laughs with the joke, but it’s not funny at all. This jab about the child and her hair comes after people tried to accuse Kardashian of waxing her daughter’s eyebrows after she posted a photo of her infant baby, something Kardashian denied (and tried to use humor to address).
“Do people really think I would wax my daughters eyebrows so young? Come on, I’d wait until she’s at least 2 1/2
“I’m kidding!!! Its pretty sick for people to insinuate that I would wax my daughters eyebrows. They are thick, natural and amazing!”
Oh come on, Joan. Really? You couldn’t stick to dissing Kim and Kanye, you had to cross over to the baby? I know the woman is all about shocking folks, but the little ones of famous folks need to be off limits, especially from someone with a whole other face than she was born with calling folks ugly.
