Did Fox News Cancel Joan Rivers Appearance Because Of Her Sarah Palin Jokes? No

Willing to say anything comedian Joan Rivers was caught unleashing a slew of jokes, or insults depending on one’s perspective, at Sarah Palin. Rivers said Palin’s website encourages violent behavior and that Palin is an amazing woman who “should go to another planet and get out of our face.” Rivers also thinks the media is right to blame Palin for the Arizona shooting because “this woman is just stupid and a threat.” And in case anyone wants to know the real meaning of “blood libel,” Rivers clears that up too – “it means Sarah Palin.”

According to a series of tweets by Rivers herself (and reproduced below) it seemed at first as if Fox cancelled her upcoming scheduled appearance on the network. Although Rivers thought that she felt the wrath of Palin, Fox News told The Wrap that the show was overbooked and that Joan will be rescheduled. Crisis averted, for now.
