Too Tsunami?

Gilbert Gottfried got fired by Aflac for jokes he made about Japan on his Twitter.    How do you weigh in on this?

My personal feeling is that Gilbert is famous for controversial comedy, not just for doing cartoon voices.  Aflac had to have known the risks in hiring him.   While I think the timing for the jokes is poor, I think firing him may be overreacting.

  1. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck…it’s no longer Gilbert Gottfried. I’m neutral since I don’t know the terms of the contract. Maybe they did know his humor but this they didn’t like. As for Gilbert, you know the old saying ‘all publicity is good publicity’.
