Joan Rivers Jokes About Adele's Weight

Despite winning an Oscar and a Golden Globe this awards season, Adele still can't escape her critics. Joan Rivers took numerous cheap shots at the 24-year-old new mom's size while on Tuesday night's Late Show with David Letterman, but it seems now Rivers is the one under fire following her not-nice remarks.
Making a joke in reference to Adele's song Rolling in the Deep, she said the singer should change the lyrics to "rolling in the deep fried chicken." Rivers, 79, added of meeting the acclaimed artist, "We got along." Letterman quickly changed the subject after the E! personality took yet another jab at Adele, causing the audience to gasp.
ET reached out to Adele's rep who had "no comment" about Rivers' jokes.
What do you think about Rivers' remarks? Is this all in good fun or did she take it too far this time?
UPDATE: The comedian also came under fire regarding some quips she made about the holocaust in association with Heidi Klum's Oscars event dress on Monday's E!'s Fashion Police. Joking of Klum's skin-baring gown, she said, "The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens."
Rivers released a statement to ET on Thursday in defense of that comment, saying, "My husband lost the majority of his family at Auschwitz and I can assure you that I have always made it a point to remind people of the holocaust through humor."
Wonder if she'll be displaying her controversial humor on tonight's Project Runway, in which she and her daughter Melissa are set to guest star. Project Runway airs at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.
