Apologizing for a joke: Gilbert Gottfried repents for his Japan tsunami Tweet
Gilbert Gottfried has enjoyed a long career in comedy by telling dirty jokes and offending people.
Last year, however, Gottfried apologized for a joke he wrote on Twitter that made light of the tsunami that devastated Japan. It was his first apology over a joke. He explained his thought process to 92YTribeca's Rabbi-In-Residence Dan Ain earlier this year. Which the folks at the 92nd Street Y uploaded online this week to honor the grand Jewish tradition of repenting and apologizing during the high holidays from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur.
So, with that in mind, roll the clip!
