Joan Rivers said she won’t apologize for Holocaust joke
Joan Rivers says she won’t apologize for a joke that’s stirring controversy. It was a comment Rivers made about Heidi Klum’s Oscar dress while appearing Monday on “Fashion Police” on E!.
“The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens,” Rivers said.
The Anti-Defamation League is asking for an apology, but Rivers said critics should be more concerned about the real anti-semites out there.
“My husband lost his entire family in the holocaust,” she said. “Your generation doesn’t even know what I’m talking about, but my doing a joke gets them talking and thinking.”
Rivers says there isn’t any subject she wouldn’t take on.
“I think that’s how we get through life — you make people laugh, you laugh, you can deal with it,” she said.
