I don't know. I know in my own life, when I can laugh at my personal tragedies, they are easier to bear, and often become less overwhelming. Sometimes the way of dealing with something really painful, is to laugh at it. I takes some of the sting out.

@Mango Lady: "Gas him. Ugly jew.

Posted at 10:20 AM on Mar 14, 2011 by Mango Lady"

Do you want to kill all Jews, all people you find ugly people or just all Jews you find ugly? It seems apparent you want to kill all Jews just because they're Jewish.

How about all Christians or all Muslims you find ugly? Do you want to kill them too? No, I didn't think so.

We know no matter how you look, you're ugly on the inside. Your soul, what there is of it, is ugly. You're a violent, moronic, sick in the head racist.

This perverted comedian, Gottfried, makes a living making sick jokes about suffering people, but you're worse than him. He just jokes about other people's suffering. You want to cause suffering. You want to kill people because you hate them because of their religion. Why don't you tell us your real name so the American authorities can investigate you and prosecute you for incitement to murder? You don't and won't because you're a coward.

@jim
I plan on emailing Harvey Levin and asking him to remove these cruel and hateful comments sections on TMZ. Especially comments from jim asking to remove posts from TMZ.
Let's all hear it for censorship, because jim doesn't like TMZ. Even though he seems to spend an awful lot of time here complaining about TMZ.

For those of you who talk of Karma - What do you believe the 10,000 Japanese dead did to warrant an earthquake and tidal wave? Or the dead and starving Haitians did to warrant their earthquake? Do you believe they all laughed at or told a joke YOU believe to be in bad taste?

All in favor of Censorship and/or Karma say Aye.

Long live Gilbert Gottfried, Harvey Levin, and TMZ.

For those of you not smart enough to recognize this post (jim and others), it is called sarcasm. If you're offended by it too bad. I don't care about your opinion of my opinion! I just enjoy having the freedom to express it. Just like YOU! :P----

@Rude Boy, you have a point about freedom of speech BUT that freedom SHOULDN'T BE ABUSED AND BE USED TO INSTIGATE HATRED AND ANIMOSITY AND SHOULD NEVER BE USED TO MALIGN PEOPLE AND OTHER CULTURE AND ETHNIC BACKGROUND AND MUST NEVER BE USED JUST TO INVOKE JOKE AT THE EXPENSE OF OTHER PEOPLE OR NATIONS WHO ARE IN GRAVE THREATS OR SUFFERINGS!

Freedom of speech is useless if those who espouse it are using this freedom without positive influences and good intentions, and instead use this freedom for their own selfish interests even if it imparts negative and bad vibes.

So if the those who hate the US will malign or throw tasteless jokes on America on the net and twitter accounts and those haters will invoke FREEDOM OF SPEECH again let me ask, how would idiots like you feel? Eh Rude Boy?

Japan has no greater friend than Americans and the United States of America. To the Japanese people, the vast majority of us apologize to you for the tasteless, stupid, insulting comments of Gilbert Gottfried and the ignorant and/or racist people who support(ed) his remarks. Deepest condolences to the friends and families of those who lost their lives in the earthquake and tsunami tragedy in Japan. America stands with you in your hour of need and mourning.

I'm not anyone    

Tasteless!

To those of you who think that we who find it offensive are over sensitive; How would you feel if something this devastating happened in your home town and people you loved were missing or had perished; would you find it funny then?

Tasteless isn't the word. Nobody seems to know who this jerk is, which is a good thing -- since his career isn't much of anything, nobody's gonna miss him anyway!
