This past Tuesday in Burbank, California, 79-year old Joan Rivers chained herself to a Costco shopping cart, before leaving when police arrived at the scene, according to the L.A. Times.

Rivers said that Costco refused to sell her new book, "I Hate Everyone ... Starting with Me," which has made the New York Times bestseller list. According to Burbank spokesman Drew Sugars, Joan Rivers was still talking about her book while she was chained to the shopping cart. Do you think it's a publicity stunt or has the Hollywood personality gone bonkers?

    As long as the product is legal to sell in the locality of their local store, Costco has the sole and supreme right to decide what products they sell and what products they do not sell - period! End the freaking conversation.

    They have every right not to sell it. It's their store.

    She's a liberal, it's a major mental disorder, and madding so many people suffer from it.

    It's sad how you can't judge a single person by their behavior, you must feel the need to insult half of the nation.

    If she's stuck to the cart, you could pick her up and wheel her out of the store...

    She's been out of the news for sometime, so time to get folks interested in her again.

    "This is not Costco's property. This was taken by the INDIANS."

    The woman to whose cart Rivers handcuffed herself should have begun to leave the store. Rivers would have no choice but to follow.

    Get your name in the paper and make sure they spell it right. Everything Joan does is for publicity.

    Bad P.R. is good P.R. It's kinda funny though when you think about it. She chained herself to a mobile shopping cart. Not like people who chain themselves to buildings or trees.
