Joan Rivers

The 2 Chicks Held Hostage in Ohio Should Lighten Up

4/23/2014 2:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joan Rivers
is scoffing at the 2 women who were held hostage in a Cleveland, Ohio basement  ... telling TMZ they shouldn't complain -- "They got to live rent free for more than a decade."

The women are pissed at Joan's comments on the "Today" show this week ... when she talked about her daughter's guest room, saying "Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space."

The women -- Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus -- came out swinging, saying they were shocked and disappointed at the "hurtful" comment.

Joan tells us she WON'T apologize, telling them to lighten up, adding,  "One of them has a book deal.  Neither are in a psych ward.  They're ok.  I bet you within 3 years one of them will be on Dancing with the Stars."

And Joan says, plenty of comedians have done schtick about tragic events like Hitler's terror and the sinking of the Titanic.  Joan says, "The TV the guy gave them must not have had SNL."

Joan Rivers and Lindsay Lohan could easily be run out of Hollywood but somebody keeps hiring and giving them a job again and again. That's the stupidity behind all this.

Joan is a vicious, nasty old steaming pile of crap. Not funny, not relevant, she needs to crawl back into her cave and just wither away.

Will the real "leatherface" stand up! She was never funny too me. Always talking about other people. How about you try to move your face while talking crap about a painful situation. She needs to be banned from tv period.

Hilarious!! I always thought those basement chicks were destined to make a lot of dough, so it was worth it in the end. I also thought that they would end up on DWTS, go figure, so if Joan thought the same, then, guess what, lighten up !!

I thought she died? Anyways ,she only says controversial stuff to make headlines. She's totally irrelevant any other way.

Once again Joan shows her lack of empathy for others. I find her very sad when she tries to use humor using someone's pain.

she hasn't been funny for over 30 years now, so why bother feeding into her miserable attempt at staying relevant?!
