On Tuesday, to protest Costco's refusal to sell her new best-seller, "I Hate Everyone … Starting With Me," comedian extraordinaire Joan Rivers entered a Costco in Burbank, California, and caused quite a stir. While voicing her disapproval through a megaphone, Rivers signed and handed out copies of the book and handcuffed herself to a shopper's cart. The video of the incident is getting a lot of attention on the Web.
We spoke to Rivers about why she chose this particular method to convey her message, where the cameras came from, and whether this was a First Amendment protest or a publicity stunt for her book. Oh, and also, what items she recommends buying in bulk.
