Earlier this week, actress, comedienne, and plastic surgery enthusiast Joan Rivers was on England’s version of The View (called Loose Women…teehee) to promote her one-woman show debuting in London.

Apparently Rivers didn’t realize that the show was absolutely live and the comment immediately sparked waves of complains to the station, including one from a woman in Leeds who was:

Rivers was then kicked right off the set of the show and didn’t even get her goody bag for appearing as a guest. Said Rivers:

“I have won an Emmy, been nominated for a Tony award, done every show and become an icon and when people ask me what is left in my career I have always said I don’t know, but I have never been forcibly thrown out of a TV studio. It is another milestone.”
