Lisa Lampanelli

NBC Treated Me Like Rosa Parks

But I Got My Apology

1/5/2012 2:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lisa Lampanelli has buried the hatchet with NBC -- calling in to TMZ Live moments ago, claiming the network has apologized for dissing her hardcore at the NY Knicks game last night ... or as she put it, treating her like "Rosa Parks."

Lisa tells us, NBC called her up today to say sorry for the faux pas -- after it asked Lisa to attend the game as a favor to promote "Celebrity Apprentice" ... then insulted her with an 11th row seat, while her co-stars Teresa Giudice and Dayana Mendoza sat courtside.

Lisa cracked, "I'm like Rosa Parks! ... Don't sit me in the back of the bus!" -- but says she has since forgiven the network. According to Lisa, NBC even asked for her address to send her a gift in the mail.

Fruit baskets fix everything.

I used to think she wzs funny on the roasts. Then I realized she recycles the same jokes over and over again. I tried to watch her stand up and she sucked. I'll take Jeffery Ross or the late Greg Giraldo over her any day.

Comparing her 11th row seats to Rosa Parks was insulting. It trivializes the struggle and sacrifices that minorities have experienced and reduces it to a minor inconvenience. It's one thing to use hyperbole to make a joke, it's another to use it at the expense of others. Lisa, did it ever occur to you that your seat assignment was at the request of your costars?

Anyone else feel that maybe NBC did it for the protection of the players? there has to be a worry of Player rape by her. lmao

Maybe NBC was trying to protect the players. Lisa likes the black boys so... maybe they were worried about her raping a player. lmao

Rosa Parks? Really? Not even close; do some research on discrimination and then apologize. What a whiner. Lots of people would love to have had your seat and wouldn't have complained at all.

Rosa Parks? Really? Not even close; Lisa might have been joking, which actully kind of makes it worse. Do some research on real discrimination (as if she will -- at best she'll offer a lame apology and not mean it at all.) Her spin-people are probably at least getting paid for some over-time tonight...

This talentless pig has a lot nerve comparing herself to Rosa Parks. If it was meant to be a joke, it's not remotely funny. Rosa Parks was an icon of the civil rights movement, Lampanelli is just a disgusting slob who makes no discernible contribution to society.

Getting 11th row seats is nothing compared to sitting on the back of the bus and the significance of what it meant. SMH
