ORLANDO, Fla., July 31 (UPI) -- Comedienne Joan Rivers reportedly used the F-word repeatedly and referred to some women as whores at a Girl Scouts fundraiser in Florida.

The Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel said many of the people who attended the Citrus Council event celebrating "Women of Distinction," found Rivers' act "rude and disrespectful."

Some attendees were particularly upset that Rivers joked about what Girls Scouts didn't teach girls. She reportedly gave as an example Paris Hilton, who she said didn't earn the "wearing panties patch," the newspaper said.

However, the organization did emphasize in publicizing the event that it was intended for mature audiences. It even used the quote from historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, "Well behaved women rarely make history!" in an effort to warn attendees of what they were in for, The Sentinel said.
