Joan Rivers Makes Jerry Sandusky Joke on Fashion Police, Watch
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.
