Comedian Gilbert Gottfried and rapper 50 Cent have both found themselves in trouble this morning after tasteless tweets about Japan’s earthquake and tsunami. Gottfried’s insensitive jokes even cost him his recognizable job as the voice of the AFLAC duck.

Gilbert’s poor taste tweets cost him his job as the AFLAC duck after for eleven years voicing the insurance company’s duck, the company fired him.
