Joan Rivers received a flood of death threats after defending Israel’s right to bomb Hamas terrorists.
The U.S. Jewish comedian hired a bodyguard after receiving the death threats following her comments in support of Israel.
“Let me tell you, if New Jersey residents were firing rockets into New York, we’d wipe them out, we’d kill them,” Rivers said.
“When she came out and said that Israel had every right to bomb Hamas, the death threats started rolling in,” a spokesperson of a charity that was run by Rivers said.
“Well, ask Colin Powell, when you declare war it is war. They started it. We do not count the dead. You deserve to be dead. You started it. Do not make me feel sad about that. You need to get rid of Hamas. They are terrorists. They were re-elected by a lot of very stupid people who do not even own a pencil,” Rivers said about civilian casualties in Gaza.
Rivers, 81, was born in Brooklyn, New York. She died last Thursday, after she stopped breathing during a medical procedure on her vocal cords.
