Jerry Seinfeld is on the micro aggressive trail lately. Like when he lashed out at liberal, PC culture, or when he may the ludicrous claim that your race or gender isn’t as important in comedy as whether you’re funny or not. But his comments here about gay French kings have really crossed the line. They deserved a voice too. Even better is his jab at Late Night host, Seth Meyers.
Seinfeld even called out Seth Myers for saying he would never make fun of Caitlyn Jenner, which Meyers specified that he only meant on that day…
“As long as we’re on the subject, which is very relevant and important. You said the other day that you aren’t going to make any jokes about Caitlyn Jenner.
“But Caitlyn Jenner can’t go around doing whatever she wants the rest of her life thinking she’s not going to show up in a monologue.”
“Ok, good, I feel better now,”
It was actually an interesting discussion on political correct extremists, the media, and Twitter outrage as whole. I remember the “New York” cover in question, and the ridiculous accusation that “this could have been on the cover of a nazi magazine.” Sadly, we’ve gotten more ridiculous since then. Well, not we. Them. ‘Social Justice Warrior’ liberals who’ve made taking offense into a full-time job.
Expect Seth Meyers’ publicist(s) to begin writing apology tweets in 3, 2…
