Rihanna and Joan Rivers are fighting. Um, okay.

Joan Rivers and Rihanna are fighting now or something. Hopefully not literally. I hear Rihanna has a real weak chin. From Contact Music:

Rihanna has taken aim at Joan Rivers after the outspoken comic mocked the pop star over her candid interview with Oprah Winfrey. The Umbrella hitmaker broke down in tears during a chat with Winfrey for her Own network earlier this month when she admitted she still loves her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

The comment irked Rivers, who took to Twitter.com to call the star out on her confession, writing, “Rihanna confessed to Oprah Winfrey that she still loves Chris Brown. Idiot! Now it’s MY turn to slap her.”

Rihanna quickly retaliated, replying, “Joan_Rivers wow u really do get slow when you’re old huh?”, before adding, “Slap on some diapers.”

River then tried to make amends by inviting her on her show Fashion Police, writing, “Honey, Rihanna, everyone knows: If he hit you once, he’ll hit you again. Read the statistics. Ps – Love to have you on Fashion Police!”

Oh boy, I think it’s time for Joan to call it a career. The old lady had a decent line that was totally destroyed by Rihanna’s “slap on some diapers” comeback. For you rank amateurs considering a career in comedy, never, EVER, try to justify a lukewarm one-liner with real sentiment because your target killed you. Joan’s retort to the retort was so hack that I’m surprised she didn’t ask Rihanna to pick a card first. So much for that “genius” label every comedian likes to pin on Joan — clearly she’s not. In the words of the great humanitarian and lover of women, DMX: “Mind yo business, trick-ass ho!”
