Joan Rivers Under Fire AGAIN After Lindsay Lohan Comments! You Won't Believe What She Said This Time!

joan rivers controversy cleveland kidnap victims joke today show

Just days after joking about Lindsay Lohan's miscarriage announcement, Joan Rivers is in trouble again!

The Fashion Police icon was on the Today Show to talk about living with her daughter Melissa Rivers when she made a crack about the size of their living arrangements:

"Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space."

Needless to say, things got very awkward VERY quickly. Not only were the hosts dead silent- even Melissa looked shocked!

But they weren't the only ones who thought Joan's joke was in poor taste. The attorneys for Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus have released a statement calling Joan's remarks a "new low" - and asking for an apology!

See the joke land with a thud and decide for yourself if Joan should apologize …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

    THIS WAS FUNNY! JOAN is Hilarious! She is bringing positivity to a bad situation with those 2 girls and they should laugh about it by now also.

    Nasty old bitch needs to go away already.

    I remember a time when comics joked about Joan's husband committing suicide. She did not think it was funny. I guess she has two standards … it's funny when it is not about my sad situation. The miscarriage and hostage jokes are incentive. Comic do not always just get a pass.

    Lindsay Lohan is disgusting. I love Joan. She's right on the money!

    Re: sayrah16 – They were kidnapped as children, beaten, raped and starved daily. One was forced to give birth to her rapist's child. The others were beaten to induce miscarriages. And you think they should laugh about this? I think the police should check your basement.

    Actually, it's Lindsay Lohan who has gone too far. Way too far. To lie about a miscarriage is the pinnacle of soullessness. The Queen of comedy, Joan can say what she wants - she's the best there is. And Lindsay will just have to grin and bare it.



  8. 8

    Funny!!! Lindsay story in my opinion is total bullshit!!! So why should Joan not make jokes!!!



  9. 9

    I'm sick and tired of always having to be soooo sensitive and pc about everything. a joke is a joke, that's it,nothing more. many years ago bette midler said "fuck 'em if they can't take a joke" and I couldn't agree more.

    Re: Teresa Andrews – the joke was in reference to the size of the room they lived in. it had nothing to do with what the women were forced to endure. stop being such a bleeding heart for people you don't even know. learn to laugh, you just might enjoy it.



  11. 11

    What in the world has gone wrong with her writers?



  12. 12

    Re: Teresa Andrews – no doubt!!!!!!!!

    You go, Joan!
    …and don't apologise!



  17. 17

    So based on Joan's comments, the jews shouldn't complain about being in concentration camps because they were living rent free.



  18. 18

    That was really funny tho! Appropriate? No. But it wasn't offensive to them.

    oh come on were you 2 girls locked up that long ,you cant laugh. It is Joan Rivers people are way to serious get a grip get a shrink and a good one ,cause the one you got to away your human side LAUGH!!

  20. Tru says – reply to this

    You're a fucking moron!! Nobody gives a damn about Lindsay lohan. Instead of focus on the true insult to the women who were held captive you chose to put that as a minor and use that trash Lindsay as the top story. God someone need to crack your head open

    Joan needs to be readmitted to the psych ward. I have no idea who the idiots are that hire these types motards.

    NO APOLOGIY…Geeze…That is Joan Rivers. Comedy should NEVER be censured, ever.
    You Have to look at Everything and make fun of everything, to get through life.
    Comedy at it's Essence, is about the absurdity of Life, of situations…..

    They both look disgusting! Why would you want to mess your face up more? To look like momma dearest. Ewe…..puke, my turds look prettier after defecating….

  27. Melissa says – reply to this

    She's an idiot and she looks horrible. Those girls in Ohio may have had a bigger room but they didn't have the freedom like that bitch had at the time of their imprisonment. Also Joan has a choice on where she can lay her ugly head. She just needs to go away quietly!

    Re: ms. trudyRe: ms. trudy – After you've been locked up in a basement and beaten and chained to the wall, let's see how funny you think it is when we joke about the size of your living quarters. You're just as pathetic as that old hag Rivers.

    I love Joan Rivers! Get over it people! She's very funny, and always makes me laugh.
    Been watching her since she was first on Johnny Carson. I am soon to be 73 just a little younger than Joan. Keep up the good work Joan. Love to Melisa too.

    Re: ms. trudy – Learn to laugh? Usually I laugh when there is something funny said, while I agree with you the "joke" is about the room where those 2 ladies had all those terrible things happen to them, I also think it was a stretch to get a little laugh and ultimately fell flat, just making her look even worse.

  32. Really? says – reply to this


    32

    Wow…. this is all there is to all this complaining and crying?
    This is only funny because she wasn't referring directly to the girls, just the ROOM they had. It's not against them! There shouldn't be a need for an apology when there's nothing offensive going on here! God… people are so stupid.

    You need to uncross your eyes and stop the powder and she if the botox will let your brain come back to like. You are a heartless bitch that needs to disappear from T.V. like Oprah and go back where you came from if they will have your stuckup ass and take joan jr with you. Shit t.v. America needs better

  34. douglas says – reply to this

    Not true. Joan rivers was doing suicide jokes almost immediately. She's a comic. That's what comics do. Save your anger for the people running th the town that let their poor girls be held captive for so long without finding them.

  35. Lou says – reply to this

    There are thin skinned idiots who will take offense at almost anything. You don't have a right to never be offended by something you'll read, see on tv, or hear in public or on the radio. If you can't deal with that then close the book, change the channel, turn off the radio. Here's a radical thought - go take a walk in the park.

    She is a loud mouth, that should stop with the plastic surgeries to her face.. damn enough already, instead try working on that loud obnoxious voice of hers.. her daughter seems stuck to her hip & they never seem to have anything nice to say, comedian or not. You can be funny without making jokes about some terrible situations..

    Joan Rivers is crude, rude, and insensitive. Always has been and always will be. You don't joke about something as horrific as what those young women experienced. HOW DARE YOU! You are worse than disgusting. You don't deserve to be the dirt under their feet!

    Re: Mad Dog
    and African-American's should look at their time in slavery as centuries of free rent!! Lets just make jokes and try to bring positivity into a bad time our history - which no one alive now had to endure. Double standard in Hollywood.

    Re: bobcat – WRONG. it was JOAN RIVERS herself that actually cracked jokes about her husbands suicide. There is no joke that would make Joan's feelings hurt. She jokes about her plastic face ALL THE TIME.
