Bernhard Banned for Palin "Gang-Rape" Gag

10/2/2008 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Unlike Sandra Bernhard, not everyone thinks joking about gang-rape is high-larious.

The bigmouthed Bernhard just got axed from a benefit for a women's shelter because of her now-infamous "joke" that veep-seeker Sarah Palin would get "gang-raped by my big black brothers" when she came to NYC. "In light of our mission, we don't think violence against women is a laughing matter," says the PR rep of Rosie's Place.

Saucy Sandy's rep didn't immediately comment on the situation.

To "it is what it is" why does the man have to be a baboon he didnt make the joke Sandra made the comment. I agree Gang Rapping is not funny for a woman, but also calling Obama a baboon is ignorant. You must have some issues with your self.

Bernhard Denies Making Palin Rape Joke By Explaining Her Palin Rape Joke

(Oct. 3) -- Comedian Sandra Bernhard made headlines recently when she reportedly told a joke saying that Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin would be "gang raped" if she came to New York. Bernhard denies saying that, and is now explaining how the story came about ... and it's a bit confusing.
Talking to the Huffington Post, Bernhard says she always opens her comedy show "with something of the moment. It so happens we are in the middle of a highly charged political time. And I'm a woman. And I'm concerned not only for myself but for my daughter and the future of all young women, specifically with Sarah Palin and her stance on reproductive rights."
She then goes on to tell what she actually said about Palin. "Being a comic, you go of on these really funny stream of consciousness tangents. So what I said, only funnier, was 'are you willing to have the experience of getting raped and then keeping your child?' Only I said it much funnier, and more fluidly. I never once said gang rape. Actually I never said rape."
Summary: She made a joke about the "experience of getting raped" ... only never said "rape." Got that?

Sarah Palin to Do 'SNL' Oct. 25?

(Oct. 11) -- The buzz has been swirling this week that Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin would counter Tina Fey's dead-on impersonation of her on 'Saturday Night Live' by appearing on the show, and a new report is saying it's a done deal.
Cindy Adams of the New York Post reports that Palin will be on the Oct. 25 episode of the show. "She has already OK'd it. She's booked. It's confirmed. Done deal," Adams writes, adding that "sketches are being sketched as we speak."
