‘Disgusting’: NBC viewers not amused by actress Natasha Leggero’s mockery of Pearl Harbor vets
Twitchy ^ | 31 Dec 13 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 01/01/2014 7:14:47 AM PST by LSUfan

As Twitchy readers will recall, the makers of SpaghettiOs apologized last month for a crass Pearl Harbor day promotional tweet. Actress and “comedian” Natasha Leggero, a co-host of NBC’s New Year’s Eve special along with TV/radio personality Carson Daly, apparently decided to double-down on stupid with a New Year’s Eve swipe at America’s greatest generation.

Because nothing says festive like mocking WWII heroes who survived the Pearl Harbor raid.

Honestly’ I don’t think the vets will care. It was a bad joke,but those people aren’t a bunch of simpering wusses. Vets have been thru a lot worse than bad comedy.
Kinda tire of the offended group meme....

MSM and especially NBC have no respect for anything military. They will no doubt issue an apology but make no mistake ...they don’t mean it!!!

I have never heard of this woman, and simply cannot wrap my head around what I just saw. I won't post the links here, but if you google image her name there are pictures of her nose bleeding from cocaine, her exposing herself to a stunned little girl, and her breastfeeding a dog.

Is this some weird nightmare? Where did this demonic trash come from?

Prices and payment methods seem to vary a little, but then, so do the so-called "services" offered.

"Its pretty sad the the survivors of pearl harbor are being mocked by the only food they can still chew" - Natasha Leggero hahaha hilarious. 10:48 PM - 31 Dec 2013

The short research i did on Natasha tells me she's a 'shock' comedienne that lives to offend.

So am I. But they’ve pulled this sh*t on conservatives for years. Maybe they’ll stop when they get tired of it happening to them.

“Vets have been thru a lot worse than bad comedy.”..

Yes we have and someone needs to accept the fact that if it were not for the veteran's these 3d rate actresses and wannabe comedians wouldn't have that free speech they so proudly expound. By the way, she resembles the hookers I saw on many street corners.

Is that what all the hubbub is about? She made a lame joke about the Spaghetti-O outrage, so we are supposed to get outraged again?

How about if we address the blacks while we are trashing queers and RATs?

Yo bro!

Thanks to the communist hippies, the fags, and the segregationist/KKK democRATs, you poor bastards never had a chance.

Any sponsor of any program that employs Leggero should also be reminded of what kind of vermin they are. We must attack their source of funding, otherwise they will persist in bringing our western culture down.

I’m tired of apologies...accepting none of them. If this is what these people think, then so be it...why apologize? Ask me how I feel about things, I
will tell you, with no apology later!

I must retract some of my last post. I fail to see the malevolent intent of the original Spaghettios tweet. Maybe a little tasteless, but no bad intent. What did Natasha say?

Cans of spaghettio’s are mocking the Pearl Harbor survivors? That doesn’t even make sense.

Megyn Kelly on Fox did a beautiful tribute to our WWII vets the other day. Natasha should be made to watch it.

I just went to Ms. Leggero's Facebook page, where I planned to give this woman a piece of my mind, but ultimately decided against it for two reasons: 1) Many other people had previously given Natasha Leggero ample helpings of their minds, and: 2) I figured that there is nothing that I could say which is not either redundant or so vile that I would be taking myself down to Ms. Leggero's level, or even lower. I went to Ms. Leggero's Facebook page thinking that I could provide her with some sort of "great insight" into her travesty cum depravity, but a cursory examination of her Facebook comments quickly showed me that such a belief was simply fatuous. Okay: I will admit my real reason for not posting anything on Natasha Leggero's Facebook page: I felt sorry for this pathetic excuse for a human being, even before I saw the Pearl Harbor comments. The woman now has physical beauty, but Time will eventually take that beauty, and leave Ms. Leggaro with that "Mylie-Cyrus-without-the-singing-talent" soul of hers, and that, to me at least, will be punishment enough!

I am sure we are all shocked by anther indecent lefty being given a platform while normal people would never be allowed on TV at all.

Half of this country never see anything on TV that represents them and their values.

It wasn't "surviving the raid" that made them heroes. It was burying their dead and getting to work on defeating the evil that killed them, often at the risk of their own lives.

Both sides of the aisle.

Two days late, but I can't agree more!!!!!

This is why we became the USSA. The conservatives who should know better, prattle on and on about this stuff and the Duck Dynasty guy and what some girlyman said on ESPN. Meanwhile, the TSA is raping us, cops are breaking down our doors and shooting our dogs, our daughters' webcams are being turned on without their knowledge, and no one cares. And I'm not just talking about some crabby old FReeper who can't take a joke. I mean, National Review, talk radio, FNC. We've lost our liberty while feigning outrage over jokes.

Here's a link to the whole story and what led up to Natasha's comment. Her own father lost his hearing in Vietnam. What's even more disgusting to me are the many death threats and demeaning comments she received on her Twitter account. And to the poster who mentioned the photo of her nose bleed, that's a fake photo from one of her comedy CD covers. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/natasha-leggero-not-sorry-joke-668443?
