i’m sorry, she hasn’t even been gone for half a day and this is getting old.
joan rivers helped me out a lot as a kid. and i mean a lot. i’m not going to go into detail. i’m not going to make a long rant saying she was the most inspirational human being in the world, i’m not going to pretend she was a goddess. but i loved her.
was joan rivers flawed? ABSOLUTELY
did she say some terrible shit i wish she never said? ABSOLUTELY
i dont know about you, but the majority of my family are racist tactless homophobic jerks. they say things that make my skin crawl and sometimes and i wish i could make them see differently. but at the end of the day i couldn’t stop caring about them if i tried.
i’m not condoning some of joan’s remarks, i’m well aware she was far from perfect.
but at the end of the day, she has made laugh when i was crying, and anyone who does that will have a place in my heart forever.
when someone you dislike dies here’s an idea: just pretend it never even happened. pretend you’ve never heard of joan rivers. when her death comes on the news, change the channel. if you see her biography in the bookstore, walk past it. joan rivers’s funeral? don’t attend it. but if you see me crying because i’m sad that she died, either console me or don’t say a fucking word.
moral of the story: I’M going to miss her. if you’re not that’s cool too, just don’t go out of your way to make me feel like shit when someone i cared about just passed away
