Joan Rivers went on Letterman this week and made fun of Adele for being fat.
Surprisingly, that didn’t get her in near as much trouble as a compliment she gave Heidi Klum earlier in the week.
“The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens,” Rivers said on Monday’s Oscars-themed episode of Fashion Police.
It took two whole days, but the remark finally made its way to Anti-Defamation League director Abe Foxman, who issued a statement calling Joan’s joke “so vulgar and offensive to Jews and Holocaust survivors, and indeed to all Americans, that we cannot believe it made it to the airwaves.”
