"Law & Order: SVU" star Richard Belzer had a "trainwreck" interview on a local Fox station Wednesday morning, making a rape joke and giving the Nazi salute in the space of about 20 seconds.
Belzer was asked whether he thought "Good Day New York" anchor Dave Price looked close enough to play his brother on an episode of "SVU."
"If he gets molested and banged in the a**, maybe, I don't know," Belzer said to the hosts' clear discomfort.
As anchor Rosanna Scotto laughed nervously and Price asked if they had a five-second delay, Belzer attempted to undo the damage, saying, "I meant banged against a piece of furniture."
Then, as the anchors attempted to close out the segment, Belzer turned to the camera, raised his arm in the Nazi salute and declared, "Say Heil to all your colleagues in the other division."
A representative for Belzer subsequently told TMZ that the salute was a "satirical gesture toward Fox News...whose ideology he is opposed to."
"The other portion was a joke pertaining to the material of Richard's TV show, which he tweaked at the last minute to make about furniture. A joke is a joke."
It's not the first time Belzer has shown a predilection for Nazi gestures: He was photographed in June doing both the salute and holding two fingers up to his mouth in an approximation of Hitler's mustache.
