QVC Queen Joan Rivers Isn’t Sorry For Holocaust Joke

Here’s an update on QVC jewelry queen Joan Rivers, dame of the far-mouthed nasty Holocaust and Adele fat jokes. In numerous interviews, Rivers has defended herself and refused to apologize for her recent controversial remarks.

In case you’ve been living in a cave, Rivers sparked outrage with her post-Oscar “Fashion Police” show on E! Entertainment Television. Talking about Heidi Klum’s daring attire at the Oscars, Rivers quipped, “The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens.”

Then on “Late Night With David Letterman,” Rivers made fun of Adele’s weight. The singer performed what turned out to be the Oscar-winning song,”Skyfall,” during the Oscar telecast.

Last week Rivers, who is Jewish, appeared on on HLN’s “Showbiz Tonight” and defended her Klum comment, according to Radar Online.

“It’s a joke, No. 1,” Rivers told host A.J. Hammer. “No. 2. it is about the Holocaust. This is the way I remind people about the Holocaust. I do it through humor. My husband (Edgar Rosenberg, who committed suicide) lost his entire family at Auschwitz, so let’s just start with that. Your generation didn’t know what I’m talking about, and by me doing a joke, it gets people talking and thinking. It didn’t bother Heidi… doesn’t bother me.”

Then in the New York Post gossip column, Page Six, on Monday Rivers again defended her Holocaust joke.

“If you want nice, go on Christian Singles and marry someone,” she told the Post.

    That’s ok Joan, it’s a joke, six million innocent souls including millions of children perished in the holocaust, very funny..I’m laughing so hard that I might have trouble reaching for my credit card to buy you crap on QVC (Joan don’t worry only joking)

    I think that Q’s double standards — pulling Jane Fonda the day before she was to appear and hawking JR’s merchandise — regularly stinks.

    Jane behaved with class and grace over the incident. Rivers reminds me of a petulant little child who won’t say she’s sorry.

    I think she’s loosing it. She is now a major embarrassment to the Q.

    • Kristine Says:

      The difference between Jane Fonda and Joan Rivers is that Jane betrayed her country and jeopardized the life of US soldiers during Vietnam, Joan made a joke, no matter how insensitive it might have been!!

    I was watching a repeat of Fashion Police a few days ago & heard the so-called offending joke. The so-called MSM has way too much time on its hands kicking Joan Rivers instead of Obama.
