Joan Rivers Says She Won’t Apologize to Cleveland Kidnapping Victims [VIDEO]

“There is nothing to apologize for,” said Joan Rivers, when asked if she planned to apologize to Ariel Castro’s victims. “I’m a comedienne,’’ she told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I know what those girls went through. It was a little, stupid joke

In typical Joan-Rivers-no-filter fashion, the queen of crass compared her living quarters in daughter Melissa’s guest room to the basement where Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight were held captive. (Video below)

“Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more room,’’ Rivers said on the ‘Today’ show Tuesday morning.

Rivers went on to tell the paper that she’s glad the women are OK, and hopes they are able to lead joyful, productive lives.

Lawyers for the women, James Wooley and Heather Kimmel, think Rivers owes their Castro’s victims an apology.

“Our clients are strong, private women who have endured unwanted and often painful media attention for quite some time. They now have to endure this, which is a new low, and we believe a sincere apology is warranted.’’

What do you think? Should River apologize, or are her words covered under free speech?
