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."

Not everyone who writes books about an experience they went through are celebrities. There are regular people who have been through extraordinary events that do have stories about their lives to tell. Just because no one wants to read anything Joan the HAS BEEN freak Rivers has to write anymore she's jealous.

You're not funny Joan. You haven't been funny in decades. Now, you're raunchy and just sad and pathetic. Shocking people with insult is always a comedian who's past their prime's last dicth effort at a fame grab. Your slip is showing Joan. We all know you're career is at an end and your desperate. You use your daughter, her career, and anything you can to get a rise out of the public. LOL It's truely sad Joan.

You remind me of that crazy balloon boy da from wife swap. There's no level of desperation you wont sink to to get any bit of attention and feel like the "old days" again. You also kind of remind me of Michael Jackson. Obsessed with your image to the point cosmetic surgery has destroyed your face completely that the only thing you CAN do is make jokes up about your own appearence just to help deal with the savage results of what you're left with. We can all see right through that one too Joan. And such a desperate has-been, trying to do anything you can to stay afloat. Having money problems too I'll bet. How could you not. You don't do anything but beg for "appearances" on whatever you can get. Car commercials. Honestly Joan. You look like a freak. You're more than likely going broke. And you're begging for that little bit of press. Just Like Michael Jackson. I wonder, will you be off'd by your Dr. too? One can only hope.

Oh, and the Titanic sink back in 1912. Hitler's reign was over in the 40's. Enough time has passed that most people have movied on. These women were just rescued.
GROW THE HELL UP!

So if anything happens to Joan, she should get over it and not complain about it when others mock her or her family then. Seriously, just because someone else makes inappropriate and uncalled for jokes it doesn't mean it's right or okay.

Joan Rivers is a worthless hag and needs to shut her mouth. Why do people even give her any air time? Shut up already. Someone needs to lock her up in a basement for the rest of her pathetic life.

When will we be able to stop hearing what this horrible woman says. Her humor is mean and worse never funny. This is as low as it gets and she got publicity for saying it. News media-- listen up. Don't have her on the shows and don't print what she says!

Back in the day Joan was funny because she made fun of herself. Now she attacks people and calls it humor. I hope she gets a huge backlash from this, Paula Deen size backlash. Hurt her in her bank account. Apparently during one of her many surgical procedures she had her soul removed. How do you even attempt to make a joke about what those girls went through. POS.
