Joan Rivers defended Alec Baldwin after MSNBC canceled the "30 Rock" veteran's show in the wake of an alleged anti-gay tirade.

But the 80-year-old TV personality and comedian upped the ante, seemingly hoping to prove a point by unleashing a tirade full of racist and anti-gay epithets in front of TMZ's cameras.

"Everybody just relax," Rivers noted, before hurling a series of slurs against Italians, African-Americans, Jews and gays, among other groups. "Everybody's something, so why don't we all just calm down?"
