    Exclusive: Joan Rivers: I’m Not Apologizing for Heidi Klum Holocaust Joke
    By Kathleen Perricone | omg! – 2 hours 27 minutes ago

    Joan Rivers thinks everyone needs to lighten up.

    When discussing Heidi Klum’s super-sexy Oscar night gown on E!’s “Fashion Police,” the 79-yearold joked, "The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the
    ovens." Needless to say, the line was met with lots of jeers.

    But Rivers refuses to say she’s sorry. During an interview with “omg! Insider” that airs on Friday
    evening, Rivers balked when asked if she planned to apologize.

    “Apologizing for what?” she exclaimed. “For what?! … Heidi didn't mind it. That's the joke, Heidi
    Klum didn't mind it. We didn't mind it. So somebody else minded, you know, then don't watch
    ‘Fashion Police.’ Next.”

    Rivers also explained that using the Holocaust in a joke, she’s raising awareness … even if that
    particular joke wasn’t met with the reception she expected. “I make points with humor and you want
    to talk about the Holocaust? That's how I talk about the Holocaust,” the former late-night host
    added. “I remind people there was a Holocaust and someone should wake Mel Gibson up to watch
    ‘Fashion Police.’”

    As for an omg! poll, in which 66 percent of readers voted that she had crossed the line this time,
    well, the comedian has a message for them, too. “You live in the dark ages,” she continued. “Learn
    what comedy's about, tell that Richard Pryor, tell that to Chris Rock, tell it to Louis C.K., go back to
    Lenny Bruce. I'm very proud to be a part that group.”

    well i used to think that you couldn't make jokes about the holocaust until i saw Kevin Neilon on Conan and he made a good joke about the holocaust, so i stood corrected.

    If she does apologize, that will be no better than appeasement. We all know what happens when you appease someone with something small like an apology or Austria. Next thing you know, they will want something big, like the world.

    She needs to stand her ground and eventually the fuhrer will subside. Before long, everyone's concentration will shift to something else. Hopefully they don't hitler with a fine or something.

    When you have nothing anyone can take away from you, you don't apologize. Everyone else has to kowtow.

    Not like she's wrong. Hugo Boss designed the nazi uniforms which is why they were such snappy dressers

    Of course we know that, but it's her way of "justifying" the joke to appease humorless cunts.

    I know. I take issue with the fact she tried to justify humor under the guise of educating the public. As a comedian she should know better and have left it off at I'm not apologizing.

    I'm guessing the people offended by that joke were the same ones offended by Seth McFarlane's "Jews run Hollywood" bit with Ted at the Oscars. But Joan Rivers is Jewish, so the PC Police have already established that it's ok to tell an "offensive" joke or make an "offensive" comment about a race/religion/ethnicity if you're a member of that group, so they can't complain about this. If the people complaining were Germans, then they need to stop being such sissies. I'm German on my dad's side of the family and I don't get all pissy when people make jokes like that. There has to be a middle ground between slaughtering millions of people and being over-sensitive ninnies. And if the people complaining were neither Jewish nor German, then they need to shut up and mind their own fucking business.
