Gilbert Gottfried Apologizes for Offensive Japan TweetsWhile Japan is still reeling from the tragic aftermath of one of the most powerful earthquakes in recorded history, comedian Gilbert Gottfried took time to crack jokes about the tragedy on Twitter.

During the weekend, he tweeted a stream of questionable jokes, including, "I just split up with my girlfriend, but like the Japanese say, 'They'll be another one floating by any minute now,'" and "Japan is really advanced. They don't go to the beach. The beach comes to them." He followed up later with, "Japan called me. They said 'maybe those jokes are a hit in the US, but over here, they're all sinking.'"
