You’re Ridiculous For Thinking Joan Rivers Would Ever Apologize For Anything

Joan Rivers Oscar special 2013Almost nothing irks me more than celebrity apologies. There’s nothing less genuine and more weak than saying you’re sorry for something you meant to do or say. If any one profession is immune to the pressure of releasing cowardly statements through their frantic PR people, it’s comedians.

Here’s a recent joke about Heidi Klum that Joan Rivers has come under fire for after a special Oscars-edition airing of Fashion Police on Monday:

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

Oh no! It’s not like the very funny, very Jewish Joan doesn’t make jokes like this every week. Her favorite topics include WWII, tampons, plastic surgery and obesity… 

Unlike a child who has accidentally broken a window with a baseball or stolen candy from the drug store, Rivers is not apologizing for the comment. Her only acknowledgment of the incident seems to be a sort of f*ck you to the Anti-Defamation League, who called the joke “offensive” and “vulgar.”

My husband lost the majority of his family at Auschwitz, and I can assure you that I have always made it a point to remind people of the Holocaust through humor.

If she were a black comedian saying the n-word over and over again and/or making slave jokes would anyone even notice, let alone accuse her of being insensitive?

I completely understand that the joke relates to subject matter that many find uncomfortable, but there’s this one solution that totally works… I strongly dislike Daniel Tosh and Larry The Cable Guy, so you know what I do? I DON’T WATCH THEIR SHOWS.
