Accompanied by a camera crew entourage, Joan Rivers took to the streets to protest Costco’s refusal to sell her book I Hate Everything…Starting With Me. KTLA reports that Rivers dramatically handcuffed herself to a shopping cart at a Costco in Burbank, CA, which seems a little misguided since those things have wheels and you normally push them with your hands. In addition to that stunt, Rivers brought a bullhorn, into which she vocalized her protest.
So, why won’t Costco sell the comedy icon’s book? Allegedly, Costco won’t carry Rivers’ book because of two parody quotes on the back cover from Marie Antoinette and Wilt Chamberlain.
