Gilbert Gottfried Vs. DiGiorno Pizza: Which One Made The More Inappropriate Ray Rice Joke?

Sports and Bets — September 10, 2014 at 1:56 pm by

Wow. Just wow. The country has been on high domestic violence awareness alert this week in light of the Ray Rice situation. Justifiably so. Many people have taken to Twitter to release their stand points on Ray Rice, the Ravens, the NFL, and spousal abuse. There was even a movement that included #WhyIStayed and #WhyILeft. If a woman was a victim of domestic violence, she could tweet the reason why she decided to stay in her relationship, or the reason she decided to leave her relationship.

In typical Gilbert Gottfried fashion, he decided it would be a good idea to release this tweet:


Classy move, Gilbert. But that’s what he does.



I have to say you would think that a well-renowned pizza corporation such as DiGiorno Pizza would have been a tad more careful when posting their tweet at the expense of Ray Rice and women everywhere who have suffered from abuse:


Listen, DiGiorno. You don’t have to tell me, I know your pizzas are the bees knees. But not even your stuffed crust supreme is worth domestic abuse, and its a tad early to be joking about such, wouldn’t you say? DiGiorno then released an apology tweet, saying they did not know what the hashtag was for.

I’m calling bull shit on the apology. Some slap dick who had been entrusted with the Twitter account for the largest frozen pizza company in the country tried to pull a slick move and capitalize on a rough situation by turning it into comedy. A lot of soccer moms out there are now switching to Tombstone Pizzas, I can guarantee you that.


But which one of these two terribly-timed jokes made in bad taste was more offensive?
