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.

Joan ignorant Rivers is not even funny. She makes a living off belittling other people. No wonder her husband killed himself.

I hate Joan Rivers and I hate PETA, but I side with Joan on this one. First of all, I actually know many people who own fur coats, but they're OLD coats. Like, passed down through the family. It's not like they went out and found a fur coat maker and said "Skin me 101 dalmatians and make me a coat". PETA, I'm sure started out as a good cause, but over the years they've done nothing but become a mockery of themselves. They waste so much money on pointless useless "protests" it's not even funny. MILLIONS spent on trying to ban Pokemon (after the game/shows have been around for 20 years) because it teaches "kids to trap animals and use them for sport". IT'S FAKE. MILLIONS spent on a program targeted at children tellng them that "If Daddy fishes, he'll probably have no problem killing your pet dog too". I mean, come one. Look at the stats... they spend 80+% of their money paying celebrities to get naked for their pointless billboards.

Her husband realized he was married to a horrible, selfish person and offed himself. Hers spin on it was never believable.

Screw Peta is my sentiment as well. If someone ever threw paint or blood on my fur I would have them arrested. Who the He*l do they think they are!

THEY WERE NO PETA PROTESTERS. I was there! This was an organized action from people who care about the well being of these innocent animals.

I don't wear fur because I think it's tacky but I do wear leather boots and carry leather bags. Who gives a sh*t? PETA and vegans are so annoying. And, for the record "vegans", we all know you sneak cheese when nobody is looking. Who the f*ck doesn't like cheese!?
