Joan Rivers says she won't apologize for a joke that's stirring controversy, and Clint Eastwood voices his views on same-sex marriage. Carl Azuz has more in Hollywood Minute.

Joan Rivers is coming under fire for referencing the Holocaust in a joke she made while covering the Oscars on the red carpet.

The Anti-Defamation League is asking for an apology, but Rivers told HLN's A.J. Hammer, critics should be more concerned about the real anti-semites out there.

"My husband lost his entire family in the Holocaust. Your generation doesn't even know what I'm talking about, by my doing a joke get them talking and thinking," Rivers said.

Rivers says there isn't any subject she wouldn't take on.

"I think that's how we get through life, that's how I get, you make people laugh, you laugh, you can deal with it," she says.

Clint Eastwood is showing his support for same-sex marriage.

The 82-year-old actor has joined a group of Republicans siging a legal brief in favor of gay marriage, according to a person familiar with the document.

The move comes as the Supreme Court prepares to hear two cases on same-sex marriage next month.

Eastwood has previously voiced his support for gay marriage, but said there are more important issues for the country to tackle.

"Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers" are hitting the road this summer.

The group is announcing a six-week tour across North America. It will include appearances at music festivals, including Bonnaroo.

They'll also have extended residencies at theaters in New York and Los Angeles.
