You know what they say, if you can't laugh at death what can you laugh at.

Never heard of him but I'm guessing he's a complete imbecile. There are some things you shouldn't joke about and the destruction of thousands of lives is one of them.

@Mango Lady: "Freedom of speech HOWIE! GFY!

Posted at 11:21 AM on Mar 14, 2011 by Mango Lady"

Freedom of speech does not include the right to incite murder. You're too stupid and/or ignorant to understand that. You've overwhelmed yourself by your hatred of Jews. You'll find out about that when the police or FBI come knocking on your door to question you for inciting people to murder Jews. Have a nice day, you racist, violent psychopath. Or is it sociopath? Or both? Let's be safe and say you're both.

A lot of you folks are commenting on TMZ about Harvey and Gilbert having poor taste. Do you read the stuff they post on this site? We are asked "who would you rather?", we read personal, intimate things about people that most would have a hissy fit if it was us. And because a guy chooses to deal with a bad situation with jokes you call him out? Take a good look in the mirror!!

If you think Gilbert only makes jokes about other countries disasters, you are wrong. Gilbert made a joke at a Comedy Central Roast about 911 i think. Of course he was boomed by some, a comment about it being too soon was yelled. He didn't wait the required 2 weeks, months, years??? So Gilbert went on to tell The Aristocrats joke, got a bunch of laughs!! Don't know the joke, look it up, watch the DVD.

That is the dirtiest, raunchiest, foulest joke I've ever heard, but it was more appropriate than dealing the with the pain of a disaster.=

Hey, I'm not above making joke's at nearly everyone's expense, but his just aren't funny. Does he think he has to push the hottest current buttons to get a laugh? Cuz it ain't workin', bro.

The problem here is that Mr. Levin posted this just for this EXACT response. It's very hateful and it pushes peoples buttons. It is no wonder than, why people are really calling it as it is. However , no excuse to threaten ANY race, person.

TMZ....small minds think alike.

Really?! I have no remark about what he said good or bad. But some of you need to realize you're talking smack about TMZ in your comments which is a GOSSIP site. What kind of things do you expect to see on here? Yeah, what he said was tasteless, but throwing this site under the bus with him?!

Hey, Gilbert, you might want to save the jokes at least until the problems with the nuclear reactors are rectified. As it stands, a big chunk of the western portion of north America could be saturated in radioactive fallout if things get worse over there. So if you can't show compassion for a country suffering such a tragic event you should at least be able to show some concern for yourself and the country in which you reside.

Exactly right. There is no excuse to threaten ANY race or person.

But poor excuses for human beings like Mango Lady, don't understand that. They enjoy threatening people just because they're Jewish. They're racists and losers because of it.
