Comedienne Joan Rivers has revoked her apology for swearing on live British television on Tuesday.
The outspoken star sparked outrage in the U.K. after she called actor Russell Crowe a “f**king s**t” while speaking to co-hosts of daytime talk show Loose Women.
The flustered presenters immediately apologised for Rivers’ foul language while giggling about the slip-up, but show bosses weren’t quite so light on their guest – they asked Rivers to leave the set during the commercial break.
Rivers issued an apology for her expletives – but has since revoked it, insisting the British public have overreacted.
She said: “Lemme get this straight. Bin Laden’s top man has been released. The price of petrol is through the roof. There’s inflation, depression. And people are hysterical because I said f**k? I was having a great time and everybody was laughing. Then these people – these idiots – came running onto the set and ripped me off my seat and dragged me off. They were saying ‘Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go’. I thought I was being arrested.”
