Joan Rivers Holocaust Joke: She Said WHAT?!?

by at . Comments

Earlier this week, Joan Rivers slammed Adele for being fat.

But that diss was nothing compared to what this supposed fashion expert said about the Heidi Klum Oscars dress.

Referring to the model's plunging neckline, Rivers quipped on Monday

“The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens.”

No, really. She said that.

In response, the Anti-Defamation League posted the following statement on its website:

“Of all people, Joan Rivers should know better. This remark is so vulgar and offensive to Jews and Holocaust survivors, and indeed to all Americans, that we cannot believe it made it to the airwaves. 

"Making it worse, not one of her co-hosts made any effort to respond or to condemn this hideous statement, leaving it hanging out there and giving it added legitimacy through their silence. Almost as bad as her original comment is the fact that she sat there doubled over with laughter after saying it.”

What do you think, readers? Should Rivers apologize for the remark?
