Gilbert Gottfried got fired for basically ripping on Japan, and Aflac’s main client is Japan. So he apologized and made nice. I expect that from Gilbert Gottfried. That’s his thing – being an insufferable ass.
Now Glenn Beck … I have to admit, he’s in decline so maybe this was an attempt to gain a little attention before he fizzles out of the media spotlight. But in the same vein, I always assumed he was mostly saying the crazy things in an ironic parody of common sense on his show. Now, after basically doing the God rant about Japan, I’m not so sure. I sense a seething religious zealot under his hood. Right next to his moronic demeanor.
Seriously, when your future career is up in the air, don’t go on TV being an ass. Especially if you have people just waiting to pick your corpse apart.
