Wow. This was a big story in Tracy's Celebrity Insider this morning, but you have to see the video for the full impact to see how crazy it was.
Joan Rivers walked out in the middle of an interview with CNN, after being repeatedly questioned about her "mean" style of humor.
Joan was promoting her new book, "Diary of a Mad Diva" . . . but CNN's Fredericka Whitfield repeatedly asked her about how she criticizes celebrities' clothes on "Fashion Police", and the borderline offensive jokes in her book.
At first, it seemed as if she playfully defended herself . . . and denied that she actually hurts anyone's feelings. But then she got more serious, insisting that what she does is just HUMOR. She said, quote, "Life is very tough . . .
"If you can make a joke to make something easier and funny, do it! . . . I'm really going. All you've done is negative. I've made people laugh for 50 years. I've been put on Earth to make people laugh . . .
"Stop it with, 'And you do this, and you're mean, and you're that.' You're not the one to interview a person who does humor. Sorry!" Then she stormed off. Whew. Check it out:
