Aflac: Gilbert Gottfried Got Fried

As most of you know Gilbert Gottfried is known for his disgusting humor. Well he went a little too far this time and got himself fired from Aflac. He was saying some extremely insensitive things about the people of Japan and Aflac gave him the boot about an hour after the tweets were sent out. Good for you Aflac!

aflacAs an example of these insensitive tweets:

“I was talking to my Japanese real estate agent. I said ‘is there a school in this area.’ She said ‘not now, but just wait.’”

“Japan is really advanced. They don’t go to the beach. The beach comes to them.”

“I just split up with my girlfriend, but like the Japanese say, ‘They’ll be another one floating by any minute.’”

There was no call for these “jokes” and they really were not funny anyway.

Well either way you will no longer have to be annoyed by his voice. I am excited to see who is going to be the new duck voice. It doesn’t really take a whole lot of talent, just someone that can sound like an annoying bird saying Aflac. The company is actually putting together a nationwide casting call to find the new duck voice. Maybe you can go try out for the new Aflac duck voice.
