Actor, foolery maker and comedian Richard Belzer was on Fox 5’s Good Day New York today, which is sort of surprising since I can’t believe they have time to interview guests in between giving us the weather every 3 seconds. But anyway, they had Richard Belzer on to talk about Law & Order: SVU and stuff, and who ever is in charge of hitting the bleep button nearly had an aneurysm in their censorin’ finger when he started making jokes about ass rape. Richard also topped his ass rape joke by giving out a special “Heil, gurl, Heil” to Fox News.
The ridiculousness started when one viewer said that Good Day New York’s co-host Dave Price looks like a clone of Richard Belzer. (Side note: I definitely have different eyeballs than that viewer, because I don’t see it at all. Richard Belzer looks more like a mix of white Obama and a scholarly Galapagos turtle to me.) Co-host Rosanna Scotto said that Dave should play Richard’s brother on SVU and Richard responded with: “If he gets molested and banged in the ass.”
The side-eyes and nervous laughs from the hosts was Richard Belzer’s cue to say goodbye, so he did it by making the Nazi salute for Dave and Rosanna’s colleagues at the other Fox division. Richard’s rep told TMZ that it was all just a joke: “[It was] satirical gesture toward Fox News … whose ideology he is opposed to. The other portion was a joke pertaining to the material of Richard’s TV show, which he tweaked at the last minute to make about furniture. A joke is a joke.”
What an irresponsible, stupid and dangerous thing to do! If Mad Mel Gibson was watching with the sound off and didn’t know Richard Belzer was Jewish, he’d want to bang Richard in the ass before Jacuzzi. In this day and age, the Nazi salute is also sign language for “Please bang me in the ass before Jacuzzi, Mel Gibson.” Richard should know better. For shame.
