TMZ: Joan Rivers won't apologize, says Cleveland hostages lived 'rent free for more than a decade'

CLEVELAND - The same day Ariel Castro survivors Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus demanded an apology from Joan Rivers for "hurtful" comments she made on television , the comedienne has fired back.

When the Plain Dealer reached out to Rivers , she said she wouldn't apologize for her "stupidity" then said the "girls" should "Calm down. Calm f------ down." 

She went further with TMZ, saying Berry, DeJesus and Michelle Knight lived "rent free for more than a decade."

She was referring to the women being held hostage by Castro in a Cleveland house for ten years.

Rivers added, "I bet you within three years one of them will be on 'Dancing with the Stars'."

She didn't stop there but you can read the full TMZ story here .

According to her website , Rivers doesn't have any appearances scheduled for Cleveland and judging from the reaction locally, she probably won't any time soon.
