Joan Rivers Handcuffs Herself To Costco Cart
TMZ broke the story ... Joan claims Costco banned her new book "I Hate Everything ... Starting with Me" because of several racy jokes on the back cover -- so yesterday, she staged a protest in Burbank against what she called unjust censorship.
Joan yelled into a bullhorn, "Costco should not be like Nazi Germany. Next thing they'll be burning the bible."
Joan then walked into the store and handcuffed herself to a random woman's shopping cart, where she continued to scream. Costco management called the cops, who then asked Joan to leave -- which she did. And that was that. But the footage is hilarious. Even the cops can't help but laugh.
