    NOT Funny- hE'S A SHIT fucked up creep



  2. 2

    First one was hilarious :D



  3. 3

    in very poor taste, but isn't he always so?



  4. 4

    A comedian? This gives real comedians a bad name. Brainless idiot!



  5. 5

    They're just crap jokes



  6. 6

    Gilbert Gottfried needs therapy. He only expresses his feelings through jokes. Remember when Greg Giraldo died??? He did tasteful jokes too :(
    I am wondering what happens in his childhood!?



  7. 7

    It's really yucky and insensitive. But I'm not surprised this comes from him. I might be wrong, but didn't he make some remarks right after Greg Giraldo died? As I get older, I don't have time for this kind of inhumanity toward fellow human beings and fail to see the humor — what purpose does it serve? The suffering that's going on across the Pacific is horrific! Don't people like Gottfried and 50 cents get it!!! Sorry for my rant, but they can't gloss over it with an "is it too soon?" quip. That joke is old and it's time to grow up. Blessings to the suffering people in Japan.

    I thought he was pretty funny.



  9. 9

    He is f….gross not funny! ugly both inside and out!



  10. 10

    perez how about you ignore all the negative stuff people are sayin bout japan and use the space for ways in which the readers of your site can help instead. remain positive and focus on helping and supporting those in desperate need.



  11. 11

    Fucking HILARIOUS!!!!



  12. 12

    Good stuff, right up there with his "The Olson twins walk in to a bar" joke.



  13. 13

    the last one cracked me up. come on, laugh a little, you bitter morons



  14. 14

    Not in poor taste, simply not funny. Look up the word "joke" in a dictionary. These do not qualify as jokes. zzzz……why isn't he joking about the flood victims in Pakistan, there are MILLIONS of them, MILLIONS.

    I imagine Gottfried has been to Japan and few of your readers have.



  15. 15

    shut the fuck up you fat stoolpusher and show some fucking respect. whether YOU or anyone else likes it or not, gilbert is a comedy legend. anyone who thinks different can go walk in front of a train while listening to dane cook on an ipod. theres no such thing as 'too soon' in the comedy world. stop being a bleeding heart and stop trying too hard to show everyone that you care and just shut the fuck up…life is obviously too short for this shit



  16. 16

    Re: Big Gurl

    HES A COMEDIAN YOU FUCKING MORON. I know gilbert and he was as hurt as anyone when greg died, you have NO idea what goes on in that circle so shut up.



  17. 17

    [re=5635737]Re: Demode[/re I agree!



  18. 18

    Uhm….I looked at this man and I thought HE was Japanese! (Is he part Japanese or something?)



  19. 19

    too soon!



  20. 20

    Eh….it's to early to be making jokes about Japan. Re: Mr.Johnsson – Lol yeah that one made me laugh a bit.



  21. 21

    Yeah, we should all lighten up as thousands of bodies keep washing up ashore in Japan. As family members try to frantically see if relatives are alive, running from shelter to shelter. Haha, so funny, right? Get a life, you losers. How about we put all those 9/11 jokes about the victims and just laugh and he haw ourselves to death?



  22. 22

    I do not really like him to begin with because he is obnoxious but I think the first one would have been really funny if it were a few years or even a few months from now. Right now, there are people dying and struggling to survive and it is just too early to say anything



  23. 23

    what a disgusting human being! but LET'S NOT FORGET! he is jewish and god forbids somebody makes fun of him being a jew!! but he can say whatever the fuck he wants about this horrible tragedy!

    what a piece of shit



  24. 24

    if muhammed won't go to the ocean the ocean will go to muhammed…well i'm converting



  25. 25

    too soon, but I smiled at them.



  26. 26

    he has never been funny and he still isn't. has he ever uttered any concentration camp jokes? didn't think so. fucking loser.



  27. 27

    I don't think that anything about this disaster is funny. People lost their lives. Homes, businesses, property, etc. were all destroyed. Bodies are washing up on the shore in droves. That's fucking hilarious, guys. All of you that are saying that it's funny, or are defending these tasteless, insensitive jokes are heartless, evil morons. I hope that one day, you will be faced with such a horrible dilemma. It's funny, right, so when all the other douche bags decide to make jokes about it, you'll laugh along, too. Who cares that you just lost your family? Who cares that everything you owned and loved is gone? It's a fucking comedy! Fucking jerks.



  28. 28

    He is too early with the jokes. Everyone knows the rule. After a tragedy you gotta wait 9 days before you make any jokes.



  29. 29

    What a fucking idiot - There's no excuse for this - He needs to shut up, it's not funny and he has never been funny. Extremely poor taste to say the least.



  30. 30

    It's definitely too soon. It's only been 3 days, and it's still going on. They're still experiencing aftershocks, and people are still turning up dead or missing. Whole towns have been wiped out by waves, and they still don't know what's going on with the nuclear plants. There's nothing funny about anything that's going on for these people right now. Joking about it at this point is highly inappropriate.



  31. 31

    It is just jokes, get over it. That is what Gilbert does.



  32. 32

    Re: ms trudy

    yes he has you moron.

    'my grandfather died in a concentration camp. he fell out of one of the guard towers'



  33. 33

    Bad judgement from both, Gilbert and Perez.
    Maybe even more from Perez, who is happy to to blame Gilbert, but still publishing those bad tweets on his own blog.



  34. 34

    FUNNY AS HELL. I love Gilbert Gottfried
    People are gonna/already joking about it, he just did it as a celebrity, so everyone will freak out about it



  35. 35

    This man’s jokes are in poor taste. I understand he has become irrelevant in the past few years and his only notable work in recent times is being the voice of the afflack duck but that’s no excuse to say such terrible things. What pains me more is that people actually condone this behavior and actually find humor in it. This is obviously a last ditch effort for him to get his name out there (even bad publicity is good publicity?). However, there is so much spite in some of the readers’ postings. I don’t find death and suffering on a mass scale amusing AT ALL. The faces you see in the news are somebody’s family or friend. We all need to respect the situation at hand as it could easily be one of us or our family members standing in ruins or dying on the streets. I’d hope people would have the decency to not joke about it



  36. 36

    I think some people make light of bad situations because that's how they process them. Get the sticks out of your asses, you whiners, and move on.



  37. 37

    Perez, he was around before you. That is his schtick.



  38. 38

    who the hell is this heartless bastard anyway??? we'll see if he could still say something like this if some of his relatives lost their lives in a disaster like this. such a waste of skin.



  39. 39

    Revolting fucking idiot ever since he wrecked Disney's 1992 "Aladdin"



  40. 40

    UGH while i do not agree that it is in good taste.. its gilbert gottfried and I can't say I'm too shocked.. :(



  41. 41

    Re: Mad Dog – Seriously? You tend to talk about how awful this guys messages were.. with an AWFUl message of your own.. You are JUST as bad. Pathetic actually.



  42. 42

    Keep them comming I laughed my face off. later



  43. 43

    the first one is funny. Gilbert is a talented guy, it doesn't bother me. They are only jokes.



  44. 44

    Society needs to remove the stick outta their ass and just fckn deal with it. I hate people who need to be politically correct all the time. Get over it! It's a joke, it's funny…deep down, I'm sure he does feel bad for what happened. I applaud him for being himself and not moping in front of cameras and being phony.



  45. 45

    More power to Gilbert! I love him and his ability to make jokes during a time where laughter is needed should be admired and not ridiculed.



  46. 46

    some people deal with tragedies by making jokes. so its not a big deal.



  47. 47

    Gilbert Gottfried was the first one to make jokes after September 11th, so why not now? The jokes are funny, gimme a break drama queen Perez!



  48. 48

    The question isn't if his jokes are funny or not. It's more like if his jokes are appropriate given the situation. I hope that majority of the people will agree that this is not at all appropriate. Taking jabs at other people's misery is simply not OK. I don't see anyone making fun of the people who suffered during hurricane Katrina. I know this sounds very bad but I can't wait for Gilbert to get what he deserves. I will smile upon his suffering. Idiot.



  49. 49

    Never thought he was funny, ever.
    But hey there is no such thing as bad press right? So why not try to boost a failing career….



  50. 50

    Yes, its just a joke. Just as funny as your mom having cancer-this is in poor taste. Glad Aflac fired him.



  51. 51

    I think they're hilarious. Don't be so sensitive.

    You have to be able to laugh at yourself and make light of the situation.



  52. 52

    I guess he took them down, I didn't see them…I just think it's weird that some of the people commenting on here thinks it's ok for his "jokes" (and jokes is used loosely) and were on the other page calling church girl 'crazy, psycho, etc…' Pick a side people and stick with it.



  53. 53

    Now that he's been fired from Aflac, maybe he could spend some time helping rather then making light of the disaster. But that probably won't happen.



  54. 54

    what a fucking stupid tool. the suffering of people is NOT FUNNY, ASSHOLE.



  55. 55

    HYSTERICAL! Lighten up losers, get a sense of humor.



  56. 56

    Sick bastard, yeah people lets see how funny it is if he goes down there and makes that crack. Yeah There is a time for cracking a joke and then theirs tasteless jokes..you people who say get the stick out of your ass or loosen up..how can you say that well many pope suffered or are suffering from this tragedy..this is nothing to laugh at or make jokes..good he got fired anyway hate that blackboard voice.



  57. 57

    This is classic Gilbert. It's what he does. For him NOT to have done it would have made him a fraud.



  58. 58

    Re: DANNYGLOVERSDICKBLOOD – what a dick



  59. 59

    Just shows how sensitive people are these days….Anyone remember this joke? "What kind of wood doesn't float?……….Natalie

    These kind of jokes were NORMAL….of course Japan killed thousands of US soldiers in WW2, but hey, we're insensitive.

    Whatever.



  60. 60

    Re: jvs007 – I wonder if you would think it was funny if it happened to you?



  61. 61

    Perez has lost his sense of humor. No wonder this site sucks now.



  62. 62

    Not as tasteless as a tubby 40 year old queen posting endless "non stories" about teenage boy pop star.



  63. 63

    Truly tastrless! Where's the sensitivity at the time of catastrophe? Some people say, "cmon it's just a joke!" Really??? I wonder if Gottfried will be joking if ever he's got family or friends dead from this horrific tragedy??? Maybe Gottfried should be the one floating on the beach! Pathetic jerk!



  64. 64

    What he posted is textbook black comedy. There are plenty of jokes about death and destruction in this world. It is the scale of the crisis in Japan that makes it hard to stomach the jokes. The extemity of the reality is what makes the joke work.



  65. 65

    when has he ever been funny?



  66. 66

    There is absolutely NOTHiNG funny about this disaster. I feel so badly for the tsunami victims and my heart goes out to them… I hope everyone does their part to help out. Even if there were something "funny" to say - these jokes aren't even funny. He seriously needs to find another career.



  67. 67

    He should kill his self. Hang him ASAP!

  68. 8pie says – reply to this

    "People like to feel morally superior by declaring themselves arbiters of too soon - 'we also care who make jokes'. " -Bill Maher.

    It looks like some of you guys need to learn to lighten up.



  69. 69

    i find them funny..of course Aflec wouldnt since they ARE in the insurance business and this is probably costing them a bundle!



  70. 70

    wow perez if anyone should be defending gilbert against overzealous humorless
    overly PC douche bags,shouldnt it be you?remember miley cyris?guess not
    you must a very short memory,these are the same kind of people who accused you of being a pedophile



  71. 71

    They ARE funny! Come on, have some humor people!
