Oh Gilbert, you so crazy.

Well, he just got fired from being that AFLAC duck for saying this. But, people seem to be pretty split over if he should say these or not. Some people think it is too soon, and some people think the jokes are funny. I am sure you guess will have an opinion (doesn't everyone) so lets hear it...

Right or wrong?

Freedom of speech is freedom of speech.

No big deal. Other people are going to make jokes about it too, so what if he didn't wait a week.

If you have ever seen Gilbert Gottfried in the documentary "The Aristocrats", you'll know that jokes like these are par for the course after a disaster.

Part of that documentary showed him on-stage at one of those Comedy Central "Celebrity Roasts" shows. The show was held like, a month after 9-11 occurred, and so everyone was shying away from jokes about death/dying/planes/etc.

Well, Gilbert starts out with a joke about being concerned that his flight was going to take a lay-over at the Empire State Building, and the entire room was completely silent - some people even booed.

So, knowing that he had already reached the pinnacle of distastefulness, he started telling the Aristocrats Joke. Needless to say, that part of the Comedy Central show was never aired.

Clearly the dude has no boundaries when it comes to "tragic" material - and I applaud him for that.

Don't even like that one but I think it's the original

His voice annoys me and his face looks like he looked up at the sun, brought his face back down and kept it the same, but damn it, that is true, Timmy. In an era of overly-politically correct people, it's refreshing to know we have Gilbert to be fearless in the time of pussy-edgyness

The guy is a comedian. Nothing is off limits to a comedian, why would he get fired for this?

Is it common knowledge that he is the Aflack duck? I never even suspected for a second that it was him.

Meh, I dont think epople really care about people dieing anymore

of course the japs will be psissed at the moment because were laughing at them but soon theyll be like"tsunami? lol"

of course im sure anyone who has lost a relative or loved one in the tsunami is gunna be kinda pissed off their tits some lucky cunts somewhere else in their great, not so earthquake/tsunami ridden country laughing at them.

its strange how people dont see that as wrong or dick shit trolling. Freedom of speech? fuck freedom of speech if all its allowing you to do is mock, make funny of those less fortuante and thsope suffering.

Better to laugh at something than be miserable about it. Fuck people that have no sense of humour.

Freedom of speech only applies to a person and the Government, not between a person and a company they work for. I have no problem of him getting fired. You bring negative attention to yourself and as a spokesman for a company, it will equate to the company as well and they can't have that in this pc world.

I don't have a problem with him making jokes, but it should have been no surprise to him that there might be some backlash to it.

I know that, and I knew that he could still get fired from his job for saying that stuff because it may not be good for their image. But, I was saying that there is no way he can legal receive a "real" punishment for saying these things. Sure, your boss can fire you... but other people can't really do a damn thing.

But seriously I don't think anyone should get offended by a joke, no matter what joke it is. Honestly, if you get offended by a joke, then you are a motherfucking plaque that causes people to get fired over tiny stuff like this.
