"Fashion Police" host Joan Rivers has branded Kim Kardashian's baby "ugly."Instagram

Joan Rivers sunk to a new low on Jan. 17 after saying that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby, North, is "ugly" and is "desperately in need of a waxing."

Rivers reportedly saw North when Kardashian recently brought the baby to the office of E! television network, and later went on to say during a stand-up comedy act that the "that baby is ugly‚Ķ I've never seen a six-month-old so desperately in need of a waxing," according to Radar Online.

Rivers was performing at the Saban Theatre to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project, a veterans service program.

While neither Kardashian nor West have reacted to these comments, the online media is abuzz with backlash for the "Fashion Police" host's insensitiveness in mocking a defenceless baby.

"Joan must be in bad need of attention to rip into a sweet little baby," a comment on Radar Online read. "Joan you didnt exactly have a pretty daughter and you yourself aren't good looking, you have no room to talk about anyone. Shame on you picking on babies."

Last month, Kardashian was at the receiving end of a lot of criticism for allegedly waxing her daughter's eyebrows after she released a photograph of her daughter in December.

"Do people really think I would wax my daughters eyebrows so young? Come on, I'd wait until she's at least 2 1/2!" Kardashian wrote on her Twitter page, reacting to rumors that she groomed North.

"I'm kidding!!! Its pretty sick for people to insinuate that I would wax my daughters eyebrows. They are thick, natural and amazing!"
