Report: Joan Rivers calls Michelle Obama 'Blackie O'

Joan told scandal-loving Howard Stern that she pulled a joke out of her repertoire about Michelle Obama (pictured) for fear of being accused of racism.

"We used to have Jackie O," she said. "Now we have Blackie O!"

Rivers claimed she meant the nickname as a term of endearment for Michelle.

She thought it was a funny complimentary joke.
Endearment and funny complimentary joke? Yeah, right.
