Joan Rivers Moves on from Holocaust Joke to Mimicking Hitler

JewishPress Logo

Joan Rivers ignored critics of her crass joke about the Holocaust at the Oscars last week and decided to have a go with Hitler, just for laughs.

On Friday, she cut off a piece of her hair and held it where a mustache usually grows as she tried to mimic Hitler, according to Radaronline.

Rivers last week dismissed criticism for the Anti-Defamation League and others for referring to a very sexy gown worn by German supermodel Heidi Klum at the Oscars by saying, “The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens.”

She not only refused to apologize, but she also said, “My husband lost the majority of his family at Auschwitz, and I can assure you that I have always made it a point to remind people of the Holocaust through humor.”

About the Author: Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu is a graduate in journalism and economics from The George Washington University. He has worked as a cub reporter in rural Virginia and as senior copy editor for major Canadian metropolitan dailies. Tzvi wrote for Arutz Sheva for several years before joining the Jewish Press.

  2. David Blatt says:

    Good for Joanie!

  3. Harris Lubin says:

    Joan, there is NOTHING funny about the Holocaust!

  4. Sometimes they are their own worse enemy! Now they found that the numbers were even.. Nothing funny about it.. She is an idiot..

  5. Brian Cooper says:

    this WAS a funny joke……to keep it ouit in the open like she does, and to not treat it as a taboo does us a better service than to relegate this horror to the back of history books that kids don't pay attention to…and holocaust deniers try to say never happened anyway.

  6. Herman Rosen says:

    JOAN RIVERS DOES NOT LIKE THE GERMANS AND THIS REMINDED EVERYONE.
    THAT IT WAS GERMANS WHO RAN THE HOLOCAUST AS AVID SUPPORTERS.
    OF THE NAZIS…THE PREMISE OF THE BOOK "ORDINARY GERMANS AND.
    THE HOLCAUST" THE JOKE MADE THIS POINT.

  7. Brian Cooper says:

    she was poking fun at Germans…..kinda like Sasha Baron Cohen's Line in BRUNO.(A DEVOTED ORTHODOX JEW BTW….)."I Wanted to be the biggest Austrian Superstar since Hitler…!"

  8. The joke was not funny and made No sense at all. She got the whole point wrong. If the Jews are being put into the ovens, then it is THEM who are Hot, not the Germans.
