  • Joan Rivers not apologizing for Holocaust joke.

    (CNN) -- Comedian Joan Rivers isn't about to apologize for a joke she made about the Holocaust.

    Rivers, while appearing Monday on "Fashion Police" onE!,talked about the dress model Heidi Klum wore to the Academy Awards

    "The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens," Rivers said.

    The Anti-Defamation League called the remark "vulgar and hideous," but Rivers, who is Jewish, said it is her way of getting people to talk.

    "It's a joke No. 1. No. 2 it is about the Holocaust. This is the way I remind people about the Holocaust. I do it through humor," she told HLN's "Showbiz Tonight."

    When asked by host A.J. Hammer why she won't apologize, Rivers said, "For what?" She also said critics should focus on people who have anti-Semitic views and not someone whose late husband lost his entire family during the Holocaust.

    "Of all people, Joan Rivers should know better," Abraham H. Foxman, ADL national director, said in a statement posted on the organization's website. "There are certain things about the Holocaust that should be taboo. This is especially true for Jews, for whom the Holocaust is still a deeply painful memory."

    When you have no talent, use controversy. What a stank. No wonder her husband chose suicide over living with her.

    Comedy.

    I don't like Joan Rivers. But this is comedy. Unbunch the panties.



    Plus the joke was a slam against Germans, not the Jews.

      The joke was out of line, but she has been funny and talented over the years.

        Where is the joke hidden in that line?

          I never understood the appeal of that unfunny, freak-show, walking face lift.

          There isn't one. The only joke is rivers herself. Reminds me of a Venice song.

        You are upset about her joke, and yet you make this comment;

        "No wonder her husband chose suicide over living with her."

          Ok, point blank:

          You verbally fellate Muslims on this forum. You get self righteous and indignant if anyone of colour is made fun of (except whites, of course).

          But you're way cool with derision towards Christians and Jews, jumping right in at times.

           

          IOW, if you want to be a self righteous PC loving poster, don't make fun of anyone, capiche?

        Would you let Joan Rivers fellate you in the back of a dark porno theatre?
