Joan Rivers’ jokes are causing her more trouble.
This time she’s offending Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus.
Their attorneys say Rivers made an off-color comment this week on the “Today” show.
She compared living in her daughter’s guest room to their captivity in Ariel Castro’s Seymour Avenue home in Cleveland.
The attorneys for Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus say that, even though they know Rivers is a comedian, the comments were hurtful, shocking and disappointing.
Below is the full statement:
“Our clients have become aware of Joan Rivers’ unfortunate comparison of living in her daughter’s guest room to their captivity. We understand that Ms. Rivers is a comedienne; however, the idea that a celebrity would say something this hurtful, on national television no less, is beyond shocking and disappointing. Our clients are strong, private women who have endured unwanted and often painful media attention for quite some time. They now have to endure this, which is a new low, and we believe a sincere apology is warranted.”
