Comedian Joan Rivers is not happy that Costco refuses to carry her book, I Hate Everything….Starting With Me.

So the 79-year old went to the Burbank, Calif. store to protest Tuesday afternoon. Rivers handcuffed herself to a shopping cart and began to yell through a bullhorn at the store, Fox reports.

Rivers allegedly said Costco was like ‘Nazi Germany,’ and soon they would be burning bibles. Rivers then said she was not on Costco property, but on ‘Indian’ property because the land on which Costco is built had been stolen from the Indians.

Local police were called to the store and she was eventually escorted her out. No arrests or citations were made. Costco does not carry her book because it has a few bad words on the back cover, TMZ reports.

Rivers went on Twitter to thank her fans for support. She tweeted:
