Joan Rivers is known for pushing the envelope but the comedian’s remarks about First Lady Michelle Obama may have taken things too far.

The 77-year-old soon to be reality TV star appeared on the “Howard Stern Show” Tuesday where she revealed that she jokingly called The First Lady “Blackie O”, a reference to Jackie Kennedy Onassis.

According to Rivers she previously nixed the joke from her stand-up routine because she feared she’d be called a racist.

She tells Stern,

“We used to have Jackie O now we have Blackie O…I think it’s an adorable joke… I thought it was a compliment!”

While Stern’s Black co-host, Robyn Quivers laughed she also added,

“Where’s the compliment in that? I’m looking and looking, I’m trying to find it.”
