Joan Rivers makes Jerry Sandusky joke on Fashion Police, watch below. Joan Rivers joked about Jerry Sandusky on E!’s Fashion Police on Friday — the same night the former Penn State assistant football coach was convicted on 45 counts of sexual abuse of children. The remark came during the comedy legend’s evisceration of a dress Keira Knightley wore to a film premiere.

Rivers commented that the gown was “busier than Jerry Sandusky backstage at [the] Kids’ Choice Awards.”  Of course, Rivers has made inappropriate and awful jokes in poor taste before, including an eyebrow-raising crack about Whitney Houston’s death in her new book. The especially horrifying nature of the Sandusky case makes it a dubious source for comedy in the eyes of many observers.Considering the hell Jerry Sandusky’s victims have suffered, Rivers’ remark was tasteless and hurtful. Certainly late night comedians will have a field day once the dust has settled a bit, but given the actual timing of her crack, she definitely gets an F for tactfulness this time.
