The ghost of Joan Rivers has a message for everyone: go buy the new iPhone 6! A post, promoting the device, appeared briefly on the late comedienne’s social media pages on Sept. 19. See it here.
Joan Rivers Promotes iPhone 6 — Instagram & Facebook Pages Accidentally Post
A post published that morning, on both social media sites, read, “This badass is being replaced by an iPhone 6 (not the fat one). I got this one in 2010, and after 4 years, my only complaint is that apps are now designed for bigger screens, and the battery is getting tired. Never had a case for it, since it was most beautiful on its own. Great achievement in design. Great product. #apple #iPhone #tech,” TMZ reports.
The post, which TMZ believes was likely the result of a pre-negotiated deal with Apple, appeared briefly before it was removed.
Of course, that didn’t stop fans from finding some humor in the awkward situation.

Ironically, E! has declared Friday, Sept. 19 — the same day Joan’s accounts promoted the iPhone 6 — as “Joan Day.” Joan’s daughter, Melissa Rivers, 46, will join Fashion Police hosts Kelly Osbourne, 29, Giuliana Rancic, 40, and George Kotsiopoulos, 45, to honor Joan in an emotional 90-minute special.
The special Fashion Police episode will feature never-before-seen show moments, behind-the-scenes footage and hilarious outtakes of Joan being silly with celeb guests.
