Joan Rivers found herself in hot water today when it appeared that no man, woman, child or (probably) animal was safe from her acid tongue after reportedly deeming Kim Kardashian’s daughter North West ‘ugly’.

But there have been many celebrities before North (and we’re sure many more after) who have fallen afoul to the 80-year-old’s vicious insults.

Making a dig at an adult is one thing, but insulting a seven month old is quite another.

During a recent stand-up performance, Joan reportedly said of Kim Kardashian’s daughter, North: “That baby is ugly... I've never seen a six-month-old so desperately in need of a waxing.”

Jennifer Lawrence

When Jennifer Lawrence dared look down upon Joan’s show Fashion Police for teaching youngsters to judge each other on their appearance, the comic went straight to Twitter to lay into the actress.

She said: “It’s funny how Jennifer Lawrence loved @E_FashionPolice during Awards Season when we were complimenting her every single week...

“But now that she has a movie to promote, suddenly we’re picking on all those poor, helpless actors.

“WAIT! It just dawned on me why Jennifer Lawrence fell on her way up to the stage to get her Oscar. She tripped over her own arrogance.”

We still think J-Law won this one.

When Rihanna admitted in a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey that she was still in love with Chris Brown despite him assaulting her in 2009, the world groaned in disbelief.

Joan, however, decided to go one step too far, tweeting: "Rihanna confessed to Oprah Winfrey that she still loves Chris Brown. Idiot! Now it's MY turn to slap her."


Joan Rivers has made several fat jibes at Adele. Copyright [Rex]
Who doesn’t love Adele? Joan Rivers, apparently. The comic ripped into the multi-award winning singer over her weight saying: “What is her song? Rolling in the deep? She should add fried chicken!”

But this wasn’t the only time Joan hit out at Adele for no good reason, tweeting on the day it was announced the star had given birth.

She wrote: "Congratulations to Adele on the birth of her 68 pound 8 ounces bouncing baby boy."

Britney Spears

Clearly Britney Spears doesn’t have a special place in Joan’s heart (if she actually has one) after she proclaimed that she couldn’t wait for her career to fall flat.

Joan ranted: "I can’t wait for her career to be over so she can serve me coffee at a 7-11. She’s such white trash."

Jennifer Aniston

It would seem that inoffensive girl next door Jennifer Aniston also couldn’t do any right in Joan’s eyes, who branded her films as ‘stupid’.

She said: “I'm so bored with her and her stupid movies," They're all the same, I don't know how they get financed."

Probably because people keep going to see them, Joan.

Angelina Jolie

While most people openly mocked Angelina Jolie’s leg stance at the 2012 Oscars – Joan took things a whole new (and lower) level.

She mocked: "Everyone took her to task with that photograph with the leg out, but to me it looked as if she had a terrible yeast infection and she was trying to air it out. It was hilarious!"

Gwyneth Paltrow

When Gwyneth Paltrow swore she would never do botox again because it made her look like Joan, the comic wasn’t exactly best please.

Hitting back at the actress, Joan spat: “When I put my head up my ass, I look like her -- which is why I don't do that, either!

“Sweetheart, eat a sandwich! Make a hat of white bread and put it on. Take some ketchup and just paint your nails with it. Have a good time, you skinny b***h.”


Lindsay Lohan

Just when Lindsay Lohan thought she didn’t need anything else to worry about back in 2010, along came Joan Rivers who openly (and relentlessly) mocked her frequent visits to court.

Body blows included: "Lindsay Lohan said she wouldn't mind being under oath because she thought Oath was a Norwegian ski instructor."

As well as: "Lindsay Lohan is so dumb. Her idea of being sworn in is cursing at the judge. I was reading about the Lindsay Lohan diet ... all liquid. 80 Proof."

Miley Cyrus

The one time she actually seemed to be talking to the majority, Joan hit out at Miley Cyrus’s provocative performance at the VMAs last year.

She said: “Enough! That girl is disgusting. She should know her audience, and her audience is 17-year-old girls.

"I would never have let [daughter] Melissa go to a concert like that at 17 years of age."

"She went one step too far. We get it: you're no longer Hannah Montana...but you can do it with a little more grace. If I had a young daughter now that would be it.

"We wouldn't go to her concerts anymore. This has gone too far."

Victoria Beckham

Everyone’s favourite Spice Girl (no, not Geri Halliwell!) was also on Joan’s hit list.

She described Posh as ‘nasty’ and ‘short’ in a rant fuelled by rumours she had heard about the fashion designer – despite never meeting her.

Joan ranted: “Victoria Beckham is so nasty. Why doesn't she just go home?! Her dresses are beautiful, but I don't care what she does. She's mean to all the people around her.

“She's too short to be a diva. We all use the same hairdressers, make-up artists, limo-drivers and greeters at the airports in LA and nobody has anything nice to say about her. They says she's rude. She can't always just be having a bad day.”

We’re sure people say probably the same about you, Joan.

Proving she doesn’t take herself too seriously, Miley Cyrus tried out a pair of false teeth for this funny selfie with her pet dog. Copyright [Instagram]
