Controversy Over FOX Show Canceling Joan Rivers

1/19/2011 4:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joan Rivers has been canceled from a scheduled appearance on FOX & Friends -- she says it's all over a comment she made to TMZ blasting Sarah Palin ... but FOX denies that's the reason.

Joan Rivers Banned Fox and Friends
This weekend, Rivers said she partially blamed the Arizona shootings on Palin ... and then referred to Sarah as "stupid and a threat."

Rivers was scheduled to appear with daughter Melissa tomorrow on the show to promote her new show, "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?"  River's rep tells us a producer called to say they gave her the chop because of Joan's comments.

But moments ago FOX responded ... they say the show was overbooked and the producer "mistakenly" canceled Joan's appearance instead of rescheduling it.

FOX insists it has nothing to do with Joan's comments.

Hey, you Palinfiles ... answer just this one question: Why won't your goddess go on any networks other than Fox? I'm sure that the MSNBC folks would love to have her on to discuss and debate her philosophies - so would CNN. Yet, she won't appear on those networks. I won't even ask you the hidden question - what is she hiding? Just answer that first one: Why won't your goddess go on any networks other than Fox?

There is nothing Joan could say I'd want to hear and that includes a so-called reality show. Joan is a dumb ass plastic old bag. Good for FOX for not putting up with her nonsense.

My President, and yours, too, I presume, is being interviewed by Bill O'Really on Super Bowl Sunday? Palin continues to be a coward, and will not nut-up for any perceived opponent networks. Curious. What's she hiding? Hmmm. Gosh, golly, gee - I dunno! Seems awfully suspicious to me.

When FoxNews says "Fair & Balanced", does everyone, like me, assume they mean "caucasion-y" and "no inner-ear infections?"

Afraid of Sarah Palin? Oh, God - is there another Sarah Palin out there? Because this one is as scary as a bag of yard trimmings, and about as smart.

QUoted from palin loser ugh vomit:
"fox needs to tie sarah palin to a telephone pole and have 4000 18-wheelers loaded with gasoline slam into her stupid ugly alaskan face at the same time.........."

Wow - that is really nasty. Now if something happens to Sarah Palin, you are partially to blame (based on Joan River's logic).
