Kelly Osbourne Petitioning for National Joan Rivers Day

0

Kelly Osbourne is urging U.S. officials to declare September 4 National Joan Rivers Day in honor of the late comedian.

Rivers died at the age of 81 on Thursday, a week after she suffered a cardiac arrest during a routine throat procedure at a clinic in New York City.

Osbourne, who appeared alongside Rivers on Fashion Police, was heartbroken by her friend’s death and is now backing a campaign urging politicians to memorialize the late star by renaming the day of her passing.

She has posted a link to a petition on her Twitter page, adding, “Please sign and RT (return) #NationalJoanRiversDay (sic).”

A message alongside the petition states, “Let’s give Joan the recognition she deserves & the fanfare she said she wanted in her book… Joan deserves this honour and your support to make September 4th, #NationalJoanRiversDay and will be greatly appreciated and help to keep her memory and spirit alive!”

The petition has garnered more than 8,400 signatures at the time of publishing.
