Joan Rivers

Screw You, Protesters

My Furs Are Older than Me

EXCLUSIVE

Joan Rivers PETA
Joan Rivers lashed out at animal rights protesters at her book signing Tuesday ... insisting she's exposing the dead animals on her back to culture.

Joan was at Barnes and Noble in Times Square hawking her new book, "Diary of a Mad Diva" ... when someone from the animal rights org asked her why she insisted on wearing fur.

Joan seems stumped at first ... then lashes out.

And then the twist ... Joan seems to say she's not in the market for buying new furs, but she's not opposed to wearing the old ones.  

Joan tells the crowd the furs have 2 options ... her basement or The Met.

She back peddled fast... Never mind I wear fur I have rescued animals. Don't care for either side but it's fun to watch Joan in the hot seat for once.

That saber-toothed tiger is especially chic. Did she wear it to the grand opening of "Fire"?

Lost any little respect i had for her.And she is delusional, SHE is older then the fur, she can not convince anyone she is young, we all know plastic surgery and such, has somewhat prevented her from looking her actual age
