Joan Rivers Refuses To Apolgize For Adele Fat Joke
Never one to hold her tongue or back down from an insult, E! Fashion Police host and resident babbler Joan Rivers is standing by her ‘fat’ slander that she directed at songstress Adele in a recent interview with David Letterman.

In a recent interview with David Letterman, Joan Rivers mocked Adele’s weight, saying the singer should have named her hit song “Rolling in the Deep Fried Chicken.”
In an interview with HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill Friday, Rivers didn’t back down from those comments.
“She’s a chubby lady who’s very, very rich, and she should just calm down — or lose weight!” Rivers said.
Rivers joked that she had a creative solution when Adele requested an apology for those initial comments: she “took an ad out on [Adele's] ass.”
“Adele is beautiful and successful,” Rivers said. “Let’s face reality: she’s fat!”
Joan Rivers is always out of pocket, so there’s no surprise here.
But does she have a point this time? Does Adele need to develop a thicker skin if she’s going to be in the limelight…or does Joan Rivers need another ‘ho sit down?’
