It's not just funny, it's hilarious!

And you sir, are a pathetic loser with no sense of humor.

Who are you anyway, just another nobody with an opinion that no one gives a **** about.

How many people follow you on Twitter?

Get a life.

Just words? Hmmmm, well walk down into central LA and shout some "just words" at some gang members....see what that will get you.

Two things wrong here with this post as I see it. First, why would TMZ post this other than to stir up hate/disgust? TMZ reporting at its finest.

Second, the "comedian" is Gilbert Gottfried. Nothing funny there, just sad that he needs to grasp at this level of desperation to get noticed. And he will now be noticed, thanks to the small minds at TMZ.

TMZ....small minds think alike.

Great post remyr, but with freedom of speech comes responsibility. The problem as I see it is, no boundaries. Nothing is off limits and when challenged, the "reporters" always hide behind the "freedom of speech" shield. Now it's being reported that some of our military has been exposed to a radiation plume from the second exploding reactor and have to be treated. Some of our Navy has been redeployed further out to sea to stay away from further exposer.

Pretty funny stuff huh Mr. Levin?

Too funny, everyone is too sensitive, it's a joke, take it as a joke, leave it as a joke. It's just words - get over it.

Funny? Suppose it is your sister, daughter, friend floating in that water! Not laughing now, are you? Remember, today it may be far enough and disconnected enough not to touch you directly in the heart, but there are plenty of "faults" in this earth and one cannot know where it will "re-adjust" itself next. You'd be screaming bloddy hell if it where your neighborhood that looked like theirs does today and someone thought it wordy of adding insult to injury.

TMZ can you tell why you let this "comedian" get audience for sick jokes and keep these jokes on your site....and same time you kill comments?

I am writing Mr. Levin a request to pull this post. Could all of you do the same?

Here is the link for your requests.

Soulless, heartless....TMZ at its finest.

Because, Moron, it's funny, and free speech is the cornerstone of this country.

Think of the Tsunami as payback for Nintendo.

He's a comedian's comedian. It's his humor. It might be insensitive but I'm sure Japan is not paying attention and he really doesn't do any actual harm in telling the jokes. I'm sure someone finds them funny...even if he is the only one.

#60...--He did make fun and joke about 9/11 victims, Katrina victims, Indian flood victims, other tsunami victims...this unfunny twerp seeks attention off of tragedy. I don't think he was ever funny. Does Gilbert joke about the Holocaust or would that be anti-Semitic outrage or would he be called a self-hating-Jew? Or is okay for the Jewish to make fun of others' tragedies as long as the Jewish are left alone? Advise Harvey, since you know best about stirring up racial things.

Oh Godfrey, don't jeopardize your "Cyberchase" gig on PBS. Nobody plays a bird quite as well as you!

Then don't reply to my posts. You have "dragged" yourself into it. Very simple solution.
