Joan Rivers, 79, has caused quite the controversy during ‘Fashion Police on E!
After the Oscars, while discussing Heidi Klum, Ms. Rivers stated that “the last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into ovens” in the dress she wore for the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party in West Hollywood. After making the joke, Rivers doubled over laughing.
While Klum does look pretty fucking incredible, Rivers choice of words has been criticized by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an organization that combats antisemitism.
ADL leader Abraham Foxman said: ‘Of all people, Joan Rivers should know better. This remark is so vulgar and offensive to Jews and Holocaust survivors, and indeed to all Americans, that we cannot believe it made it to the airwaves.
‘Making it worse, not one of her co-hosts made any effort to respond or to condemn this hideous statement, leaving it hanging out there and giving it added legitimacy through their silence.
‘Almost as bad as her original comment is the fact that she sat there doubled over with laughter after saying it.’
He continued: ‘There are certain things about the Holocaust that should be taboo. This is especially true for Jews, for whom the Holocaust is still a deeply painful memory.
‘It is vulgar and offensive for anybody to use the death of six million Jews and millions of others in the Holocaust to make a joke, but this is especially true for someone who is Jewish and who proudly and publicly wears her Jewishness on her sleeve.’
Joan Rivers has refused to apologize and believe it keeps the Holocaust alive in societies eyes. She said: ‘My husband lost the majority of his family at Auschwitz, and I can assure you that I have always made it a point to remind people of the Holocaust through humor.’

[VIDEO] Time capsule conversation: Jeremiah McDonald Talks To His 12-Year-Old Self Using a Video He Made TWENTY Years Ago
this video has began going viral, and because of that, I thought I would share it with all of you. Jeremiah McDonald is a 32-year-old man who appears to be having a conversation with himself, at the age of 12.
Jeremiah McDonald‘s endearing film shows him going 20 years back in time to speak to himself as a playful, chubby-cheeked boy.
McDonald is from Portland, Maine and is receiving not only praise for this video, but also some skepticism. Many people believe he hired someone to play his 12-year-old self, while others realize he is a filmmaker and has the ability to edit a video from 20 years ago, that he made himself, with the newer video he recently filmed. Also, he made this video and most likely watched it a few times and decided what questions he could ask and what statements he could make that would make it appear that he was having the conversation with the boy from the older video. It’s not rocket science. In fact, how do you think reality television works? They arrange the footage they’ve captured in such a way that they can tell whatever story they choose to concoct.
The outrageously talented McDonald is an associated artist with the Comédie de Caen theatre in Normandy, France.
Betty White, 90-years-old, and still has some of the best advice for people today. Everyone says listen to your elders, and my feeling is she is most definitely an elder for most politicians, and hell, most everyone today. Learn from what she has learnt and stop giving two shits about my sexual relationship with someone, because quite frankly, it’s none of your business. If I asked a heterosexual man if he liked sticking it in his wife’s rear, surely he’d be offended; Yet, sodomy has been in law books, for years, as a crime. If you’re a gay man, it’s common knowledge that that’s what goes on, but just because you assume, doesn’t mean someone should be persecuted. And if that were the case, we should be able to look into heterosexual relationships to make sure that they’re not committing the same indecent act.

Professor Irwin Corey was not only an intellectual, but he was also a comedian, actor and liberal activist. He has been patrolling Manhattan’s East 35th Street for 17 years, collecting small amounts of money from the people who unknowingly gave to a once very well-known man.
In fact he is not even homeless, despite his scruffy, scrawny appearance, but has an apartment in an affluent area of New York which he believes to be worth $3.5million.
His reasons for posing as a homeless down-and-outer and hassling drivers for change are two-fold: Since his wife of seventy years Fran died in May he said it helps beat the loneliness.
Since he doesn’t need the money, he donates all of his earnings, sometime even $250/day, to a charity located in Cuba that buys medical supplies for the children there.
He has had a career since a VERY young age, and has worked alongside many well-known personalities, such as Jackie Gleason and Woody Allen. He also appeared on The Late Night with David Letterman. He hasn’t stopped yet and still continues to perform.
Mr Corey has cultivated his ‘professor’ charade since the 1940s, with his trademark black tails, a string tie, high-top sneakers and scarecrow hairdo.
Though his stage persona is known more of its witty one-liners, put down of hecklers and nonsensical observations, he is mild-mannered to those who give him money on the street, always expressing gratitude and telling them: ‘See you later, alligator.’
Mr Corey has travelled to Cuba to donate personally, he said, and has photographs on his wall with Fidel Castro, alongside one of him on the David Letterman show in 1982, and with the likes of the comedian Dick Gregory and the actor Ossie Davis.
I absolutely adore this woman! Not only does she say whatever the fuck she wants, but she does so at an age that most would expect her to br prudish and uptight. And personally, I agree with this statement. I have never seen a man cry so hard as when he gets slapped in his nuts. Not closed hand, punched in the nuts, but bitch slapped. Those sorry asses go down so fast and roll around on the ground as if we ripped their dicks off.
When I get slapped in the vagina, I get pissed. I don’t fall to the floor and cry about it. I have no intention of growing balls so that I can be easily diminished to a sobbing fool by an enemy, fuck that. I suggest you lose yours and grow a damn vagina so you at least appear to act like a man as opposed to a little bitch.
