Gilbert Gottfried Makes Japanese Earthquake Jokes, Loses Aflac Deal

e4875afe29b911ea025ddbb09a80abfe Gilbert Gottfried Makes Japanese Earthquake Jokes, Loses Aflac Deal

When will celebrities learn that just because they can say anything they want when microblogging, they probably shouldn’t. Aflac spokesperson or perhaps I should say former Aflac rep Gilbert Gottfriend took to Twitter on Sunday and tweeted the following message:

“I just split up with my girlfriend, but like the Japanese say, ‘They’ll be another one floating by any minute now.’”

Later adding:

“What does every Japanese person have in their apartment? Flood lights.”

Even after receiving harsh criticism from his own fans he continued with:

“Japan called me. They said ‘maybe those jokes are a hit in the US, but over here, they’re all sinking.”

In a press statement Aflac execs shot back with:

“Gilbert’s recent comments about the crisis in Japan were lacking in humor and certainly do not represent the thoughts and feelings of anyone at Aflac.

Aflac, who conducts nearly 75% of their overseas business in Japan added:

“There is no place for anything but compassion and concern during these difficult times.”

So who will replace the comedian? “Aflac will immediately set plans in motion to conduct a nationwide casting call to find a new voice of the iconic Aflac Duck. It should be noted that Gilbert Gottfried is not the voice of the Aflac Duck in Japan.”

Gottfried has always annoyed me, so good riddance to horrible trash.
