The Tweets that got Gilbert Gottfried fired

Comedian Gilbert Gottfried has been fired as the voice of the Aflac duck. Gottfried has made a career out of being offensive. Unfortunately, following the earthquake in Japan, Gottfried went too far. He made a series of posts on his Twitter account including one that said, “Japan is really advanced. They don’t go to the beach. The beach comes to them.” and “I just split up with my girlfriend, but like the Japanese say, ‘They’ll be another one floating by any moment.'”

Japan is Aflac’s number one foreign market.
