Gilbert Gottfried on being crucified in the media
"The media, the first thing they did is they called my jokes "remarks." And "comments." That immediately changes people's perception. They're not remarks or comments. They're outrageous jokes! If the media called them what they were, "jokes," people would be going: "Who cares? There's a comedian making jokes!?!" It's not a headline to say, "Gilbert Gottfried makes tasteless jokes." When have I ever done tasteful jokes?"
