Joan Rivers has made a LOT of offensive jokes over the span of her 5+ decades on stage.
But when she threw out a tasteless joke about the Cleveland kidnapping victims on The Today Show, she lost a lot of people- and not just those on the set with her!
Attorneys for Gina DeJesus and Amanda Berry quickly made a public statement demanding an apology from the octogenarian comic.
So does Joan plan to say she's sorry for offending them? Nope! She says:
"I'm a comedienne. I know what those girls went through. It was a little, stupid joke. There is nothing to apologize for. I made a joke. That's what I do. Calm down. Calm f**king down. I'm a comedienne. They're free, so let's move on."
Joan just doesn't surrender! And though she did go on to say she's very happy the women are free and hopes they have happy lives, the attorneys' demand for an apology will go unfulfilled.
But what about Joan's defense? Does being a comedian give one carte blanche to joke about anything? Or are some topics too serious?
What do U think??
