RumorFix has learned that Joan Rivers was escorted off the premises of a Costco on Tuesday after chaining herself to a basket inside the store.
The publicity stunt was done in protest of the retailer refusing to sell her new book, I Hate Everyone … Starting With Me. Video of the incident circulating online shows Rivers urging fans to buy her book, and rambling on about America not being Nazi Germany.
Burbank police confirmed to RumorFix that they were called out to the Costco where they asked the comedian to leave, to which she complied. No arrests or citations were made.
Rivers reportedly had a camera crew with her documenting what was happening. She was not cited or arrested, and no complaint has been filed against her.
