Joan Rivers

Costco Won't Sell My Book!

6/1/2012 11:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601_joan_rivers_video_tmz_5Joan Rivers' new book is set to hit stores next week, but you won't find it at your local Costco ... because Joan claims the bulk retailer has cancelled its order because Joan refused to remove a few raunchy jokes on the back cover. 

Joan called in to TMZ this AM in the middle of the morning meeting and explained how Costco objected to 2 fake testimonials:

-- Wilt Chamberlain: "Even if I were alive I wouldn't f**k her."
-- Marie Antoinette: "I don't like her. Let her eat s**t."

Costco had neither a comment nor a sense of humor.

I love Joan, I love Costco. Costco has the right to object to certain words on back cover. Joan, look at it this way, TMZ just gave you free publicity becuz of Costco refusing to sell your book.

I don't blame Costco. Put those crude comments on the inside of the book. She has no class!

I can understand why after reading those. They are inappropriate so I don't blame Costco for not wanting to stock those. I'm sure there are many other places happy to sell her book.

Good for COSTCO. There is a propoer place for those kind of statements and that place is not on the back cover of her book. She should know better and her publisher should have warned her. Its about time some Comnpany stood up and said No. Now if more Companies would start taking the high road, all these relaity losers like the KrapTrashians, Jersey Shore morons, Woman beater Chris Brown and tramp Rihanna will also go

First of all, who would buy this book! Secondly, I agree with Costco we don't need filthy language ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE BOOK. Kids could see that stuff. Come on Joan, stop trying to place Costo in a poor light when it should be you!

Joan Rivers is a skank...and she's not funny. I wouldn't buy her book no matter where it's sold.

She should pull a page out of Madonna's Sex book. It was wrapped and sealed in Silver metallic plastic. Why not have a secondary cover with the back hidden?

She should be thankful her daughter broke up with the porno guy.

While funny, it's hardly family entertainment. I'm with Costco on this one.
