Whoopi And Joy Continue To Defend Gilbert Gottfried On The View!

| Filed under: TV NewsElisabeth HasselbeckWhoopi GoldbergJoy Behar

And the battle continues!

Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg once again went at it with Sherri Shepherd and Elizabeth Hasselbeck today on The View, over whether or not Gilbert Gottfried's jokes about the recent tsunami that has devastated Japan warranted his termination.

Ch-ch-check out their opinions on the matter (above)!

Although we rarely see eye to eye with her, we think Elizabeth makes some pretty strong points.

But what do U think?? Was Gottfried out of line??

    Most of Aflax's (?Spelling) business is done in Japan. Let me ask Joy if it were Mel Gibson (not a comedian) saying the same thing you would be out raged. Whoopi if he said something about the Katrina Flooding you would be pissed. They had to fire him because of who their client base is. He and anyone who uses tragety to get a laugh is an idiot no matter who they are.

    Who cares about these two cackling hen's.

    all these b!tches are ugly & gross, typical that you would watch this show

    "Finding humor in tragedy is a human coping strategy when stark, unfiltered reality begins to taste and smell like a burden too heavy to bear. Most likely, some Japanese comedian will be beset by the same enigma in the near future, "Is it okay to make a tsunami joke now?" Radiation joke? Hmmm… probably not soon … or ever. Elusive terms like timing and taste spring to mind, yes?"

    He is a comedian, I don't think he needed to lose his job, but he did a big mistake because Aflack ( a medical insurance company) has big accounts in Japan. They don't want to be associate with Gilbert Gottfried.

    I was watching Donald Trump's roast and I was noticing the comedians…they make horrible jokes between them and they laugh, laugh and laugh. Why is that? It's really disturbing…maybe they are open to all kind of attention, even if it's negative. That's sad.

    Move on - this story is old. It's sad that his freedom of speech is being sensored. He's a comedian shocking people is what he does. You can not deny what happened. The jokes may have been to "soon" for some - but those people aren't his audience. Go Team Gilbert!

    I am bothered by an number of people who have made ignorant statements. Gilbert, Beck, Druggie Limbaugh, the crazy religious girl on you tube and the college girl in the library.

    Laughing helps us cope with hard times. I thought wat he said was funny. But you can't bite the hand that feeds you

    These two should re-enact the last scene from Thelma & Louise… FOR REAL!

    Fuck both of 'em.

    Unfortunately everything Elisabeth says is @ 90 miles per hour. She rarely has a point of view that isn’t rigid/frigid. American’s seem so eager to hang everyone for any gaff, with Blow Hard, Closeminded people like her at the helm.
    What he said was wrong, what he did was apologize which was right. Should he lose his job, that’s not up to Elisabeth thank God, because if it were up to me she would have lost her job years ago. I don’t watch the View because of her. I’m enjoying the Talk instead.
    If only we were all as perfect as Elisabeth!

    who cares



  12. 12

    there is a time and place for everything and this tragedy was NOT the time to make jokes! Total moron especially that AFLAC has a big client base in Japan but aside from that simple humanity people are suffering no time to make jokes. way to go AFLAC!



  13. 13

    I cannot stand those two women. They have such skewed views. They never let anyone talk and believe that if someone does not have the same opinion as them, then they are wrong. Anyone in their right mind would know that this is a sensitive issue right now and there should be some repurcussion for his actions and words.



  14. 14

    In my eyes, the bigger issue is that none of these grown women seem to understand that having a difference of opinion is okay and to be expected. They are all worried about stating their "truths" and anyone else is irrelevant and wrong.
    *
    I haven't watched the video - I'm simply assuming their comments off of the other "conversations" these moron's have had.



  15. 15

    There is a right time for everything. Joking at a time when Japan is still undergoing the worst tragedy since Hiroshima is despicable. I can't imagine joking at a time when a nation and its people experiences a huge earthquake, tsunami and nuclear plant meltdown - and over
    10, 000 people dead! I'm glad AFLAC didn't rehire that jerk back!



  16. 16

    Who really cares? I know I don't! The focus should be on the victims of the earthquake, sunami and the what seems to be inevitable nuclear disaster that will affect us all. When I think of the the enormity of it all, the thousands of lives lost and the pain and sorrow I get angry that so many morons are concerned with what a comedian had to say. Get over this non-news.



  17. 17

    I don't understand why people in general choose to get so worked up and offended by the stupidest things. Who cares what he said? There are more things to be offended about in our country right now than what jokes a comedian has said. So what you didn't find humor in what he said. Move on and shut up.



  18. 18

    And also, It's not like he caused the disasters that happened over there…and I guarantee he feels bad for the Japanese people who are suffering…but it was just a joke. He didn't hurt anyone.



  19. 19

    Gilbert's fellow comedians shut him up when he tried to make a 9/11 joke three weeks afterward at a roast. American comedians still won't make 9/11 jokes. I found a bunch online but I won't type them here. We'd be sensitive if people made mortgage crisis jokes.



  20. 20

    When the f..uck did it happen that a comedian has to worry about being politically correct? As a society we are definately becoming such cry babies..can't even take a joke from a f..ucking comedian…. the day is fast coming when freedom of speech will become extinct….



  21. 21

    Re: !hateperez – "It's sad that his freedom of speech is being sensored". Huh? His freedom of speech has not been censored. He can say whatever he likes…but Aflack doesn't have to pay him as he does it. Sheesh.

    I believe in freedom of speech, but I also believe there are consequences to your actions. Aflac had every right to fire him.

    I wouldn't defend what he said, just his right to say it…personally, i thought his comments were very inappropriate.



  24. 24

    If Gilbert Gottfried isn't intelligent enough to understand that public statements he makes will reflect upon his employer too, he deserves to be fired. What he said was stupid/insensitive. Does he find humor in the suicide bombings in Israel too?



  25. 25

    blahh blah blahhhhh



  26. 26

    So is she upset about the HORRIBLE things Rush L has been saying about Japan (in a VERY mean way not joking AT ALL)?!



  27. 27

    Civil war in Libya, dictators ousted in Egypt and Middle East, earthquakes, tsunamis, nuclear disaster, Elizabeth Hasselbeck making sense, this MUST be the Apocolypse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I like Gilbert Gotfried, but he was wrong. He apologized. Let's move on.



  28. 28

    Saying that making jokes about a tragedy helps us cope only makes sense if it were a Japanese comedian making the joke. Because he's there and he's the one that needs to cope. Any other comedians from across the world, when they make the jokes, it's just making fun of a situation. How does it help Gilbert Gottfried to cope with anything? It doesn't.

    We've all been in situations so bad that we can't help but make bad jokes because it feels like you're at the end of your rope and there's nothing left to do but laugh. Ever hear people play that game where you go around in a circle and say out loud everything that's wrong with your life? And then then the next person tries to top it with their own sob story. And on and on… It's like, "you think your life is bad? Well get a load of mine!" It helps to get it off your chest and puts it in perspective. But again, people can accept self-deprecation, but to make fun of another person's situation is where I cross the line.

    I would like to see how Whoopi and Joy would react when Gilbert makes a joke about African-American as slaves and Jews killed by Hitler.

    Comediennes are like doctors. They have each other's backs. They also don't cotton to censureship or political correctness cramping their ability to comment about whatever, whenever.
