Joan Rivers has always been an outspoken and controversial comedienne, but her latest jokes have critics slamming the 80-year-old for taking things too far.
The Fashion Police co-host recently made a series of jokes about the three Cleveland women rescued last May who were held hostage and raped for more than a decade.
When promoting her reality show with daughter Melissa, the millionaire complained about her current living arrangement in her daughter's guest bedroom, telling anchors on the Today show, "Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space."
She later lamented to TMZ, "They got to live rent free for more than a decade."
Now, attorneys for two of the women rescued, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, are demanding she apologize, calling the comedienne's comments "a new low."
But Joan has made it clear she has no intention of apologizing, telling Cleveland newspaper The Plain Dealer, "I know what those girls went through. It was a little, stupid joke. There is nothing to apologize for. I made a joke. That’s what I do. Calm down."

This is the second time in a week the host has come under fire for her remarks. She first made headlines for joking about actress Lindsay Lohan's miscarriage after the 27-year-old revealed she suffered one while filming her docu-series.
