Natasha Leggero just made a joke about the SpaghettiOs Pearl Harbor tweet that was probably more offensive than the tweet itself.—

As Twitchy readers will recall, the makers of SpaghettiOs apologized last month for a crass Pearl Harbor day promotional tweet. Actress and “comedian” Natasha Leggero, a co-host of NBC’s New Year’s Eve special along with TV/radio personality Carson Daly, apparently decided to double-down on stupid with a New Year’s Eve swipe at America’s greatest generation.
Because nothing says festive like mocking WWII heroes who survived the Pearl Harbor raid.
Did some dumb ass idiot on this NBC New Year's show just make fun of Pearl Harbor survivors and "gumming" their food now? Seriously??!!!—

NBC is getting an earful from viewers on its Facebook page, too.
“Hiding it well?” Nah. Seems like their idiocracy has been laid bare for all to see.
