Veteran comic and ‘Fashion Police’ co-host, Joan Rivers, has made a career out of being brash and controversial. She often insults public figures and delivers jokes that can be considered racist, anti-Semitic, or just plain rude.

The media recently blasted Rivers after making a Holocaust joke on television. In trying to explain how wonderful supermodel Heidi Klum looked, she said “The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens.”

Very few people found it funny, but as always, the comedian refused to apologize… using her Jewish background and husband’s experience with the Holocaust as an explanation.

So, when TMZ approached Rivers at the airport to ask about her feelings on Bieber’s recent Anne Frank controversy, she decided to defend the young pop star.

If you remember, Bieber was criticized for commenting “Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber” in the Anne Frank House guest book.

Rivers believes that Bieber’s comment “came out wrong”, and if anything more people will visit the Anne Frank House.

Watch her comments below.
