While appearing on NBC's “New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly,” actress and comedienne Natasha Leggero angered a number of people when she mocked survivors of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Newsbusters reported Wednesday.

Campbell’s, Noel Sheppard wrote, got in trouble when it tweeted a picture of its SpaghettiOs mascot holding an American flag and asking people to "take a moment to remember #PearlHarbor with us."

"It offended a lot of people, corporations glomming on to, you know, sentimental American historic traditions, seemingly looking for people in business. It wasn't good. But you were offended for another reason," Daly said

"I'm offended because they were referring to SpaghettiOs as pasta," said Jane Lynch.

"I mean, it sucks that the only survivors of Pearl Harbor are being mocked by the only food they can still chew. It's just sad," Leggero added.

Sheppard said the entire group reacted with laughter, including actor Anthony Anderson who, he said, "proceeded to laugh as if this was the funniest thing he’d ever heard."

Twitchy said a number of NBC viewers weren't happy with her display.

"Are you kidding?" one person tweeted.

"Just tried watching 10 minutes of @nbc coverage of New Year's celebration.Right away they take shots at those fought in Pearl Harbor," another person added.

"Making fun of Pearl Harbor vets? Changing channel. Disgusting. Really NBC?" another Twitter user said.

NBC's Facebook page was inundated with angry viewers making their feelings known.

"Shame on you, NBC, for making fun of the WWII vets," one person said.

"We turned to ABC immediately," another person said.

A scan of the page found no apology or mention of Leggero's comment by NBC, something that caused one person to say tht perhaps NBC executives approve of her comment.

NBC is the parent network of MSNBC, the cable outlet known here as the network of insane liberal hate.
