If you don't like it, don't read it or pay attention to him! while the tragedy is unthinkable he has the right to joke about it and its inevitable that jokes will surface.

Seriously, we have become a nation of whiners who pay more attention to Celebrities that we do serious world events or loss of serious liberties, rights and the fleecing of the US by the rich and their corporations...

The first one was OK, but that second one was pretty gross quite frankly.

I normally laugh at shock valued jokes like those, but c'mon man... that's just tasteless. The country is suffering, and there are three nuclear reactors that are begging to meltdown, and you're JOKING about this? How pathetic.

Horrifying. "Just words" are the window to ones mind and soul. This man is devoid of conscience.

No Mr. Levin, no you don't. You and your TMZ crew are starting to show your true agenda....make revenue at any cost...including posting jokes about the Tsunami in Japan.

Karma Mr. Levin, and it's a bitch.

I like Gilbert Gottfried, however there is a time and a place for everything: Now is definately not the time or place. Very poorly timed and insensative.

Gilbert, get over there and throw your cold-hearted carcass over those nuclear rods to cool them down.

Not his funniest works, but mildly amusing.

If now is not the time for jokes, please let me know when the right time is, because I have a few of my own that I'm bursting to tell.

Remember, everything in life has the potential to be funny. Smartasses seize the moment while you're too busy being uptight. Lighten up.


I still say the tsunamis and earthquakes are pretty unbelievable. Godzilla is the more realistic threat here.

Those are the kind of jokes that you should just keep between friends, because your friends still chuckle even if they're slightly offended, but they know you and understand your intent.

For the public...way too soon.

Where's KOOKY?    

To poster #8, Jim -- GREAT post. Even before I read yours, I was going to respond and put the word "comedian" in quotes like you did, because GG is definitely NOT a "comedian" by any stretch of the imagination. He's a pig, NOT funny, and so strange I can't imagine how anyone could watch anything he's in.

Hiw "jokes" are beyond the pale, and even the lowest of the low should realize there's a time and place for most things, and this is definitely NOT the time nor is there EVER a time for crap like this.

TMZ, please. Show some class, eh? All because you CAN print it, doesn't mean you SHOULD.
