Way to make America look like a bunch of *******s. This guy is a f'n loser. People are dead. Their families are dead. They have lost everything and this prick sitting in his lofty LA home with a mill in the bank has the nerve to say something like this? This is the same prick that made fun of 9/11. He's not even funny and neither were his stupid wanna be jokes.

God Bless the people of Japan......sorry some American's think tragedy is funny....K.A.R.M.A.

So 50cent and Gilbert G. had the same parents? Their ridiculous excuse for a sense of humor shows they've got some reeeeal mean genes.

The only thing that hasn't happened to those poor people is Godzilla stomping down mainstreet.

So Mr. Levin, why would you take jokes that apparently he removed from his page, and move them here to TMZ? Really, can you answer that please?


TMZ....little minds that think alike.

Like I said never liked his little annoying, slobbering ass, but THIS IS HIM, I wonder what kind of mind it takes to start thinking of these things while a disaster is in progress. TMZ did not have to spread the weirdness.

In theory, I don't believe anything is off-limits for humor. To each their own. However, these jokes are not funny. The guy is a no-name hack. Sure, he garnered attention by being controversial, but there is no sign of talent or true wit. So, in the end, he just embarrassed himself.

Well...one way to look at this issue is to consider it in this way -If this was Venice and Long Beach sifting through the rubble for the bodies of loved ones' - The Japanese people would not be making jokes about it.

This phenomenon of the cultureless-uncouth trashy… is uniquely American...I am sad to say...And as many posts here will confirm.

TMZ is uniquely American. And we wonder why we are hated so much throughout the world? Thank you Mr. Levin for your "input" to this senseless exploitation.

Those tweets were meant for his tweeter account. Yes, he may have followers, but still in his account and those who follow him are like his friends and the joke brought for them. Those who are offended can disconnect from nim. Tasteless and insensitive as it may seem, he has the right to do whatever he wants. TMZ on the other hand preferred to publish it for other people to view and putting it out there to bring out hate and sensation. For a land who keeps on saying we have freedom of speech, we can't blame both sides, the have all the freedom they want to write what is their minds. There will be more from other people about certain jokes. So, we have to take it, this is what "this" freedom brings.

Yes, nothing like laughing at a country on the brink of annihiliation, with at least ten thousand people dead.
