Rob Schneider Zinged Jimmy Fallon for Cancelling Norm Macdonald
The Tonight Show, in order to out-woke the most wokest snobs at this weekend's wine tasting parties, canceled Norm Macdonald's recent appearance. A lot of normal people were bothered by the cancelation and what it means for our culture. Those unbothered were leftist doucheburritos who believe entertainment exists just to validate their worldview. The offensive aspect of the cancellation was the reason: Macdonald's #MeToo comments, where Norm also defended Jimmy Fallon being attacked by those same aforementioned doucheburritos.
Norm's friend and fellow SNL alum Rob Schneider had the best response to the cancellation. He managed to blast Fallon, while also mocking a truth about celebrities.
To be fair, Norm gave insight into what happened behind the scenes on a recent Howard Stern appearance.
"Jimmy comes to me ... and he was like, 'How should we play this? I said 'I think we should say it at the end because if you say it at the beginning, you can't come back from that,'" Macdonald told Stern. "And he said, 'What am I supposed to ask?' And I said, "Jimmy, I don't exactly know.' So he leaves. Then someone suggested I start the show with an apology, and I go, 'It's not my show.'
And Jimmy came back in and said 'Can I talk to you, buddy?' He was very broken up about it. And he said 'I don't know what to do. And I said 'Should I not do the show?' And he said. 'I don't know. It's just that I have so much pressure from so many people.' He goes, 'People are crying.' And I say, 'People are crying?!' And he said, 'Yeah. Senior producers are crying.'
And I said 'Good lord! Bring them in and let me talk to them. I don't want to make people cry.' So Jimmy said, 'Come back whenever you want, but I think it will hurt the show tonight. And I said, 'Jimmy I don't want to hurt your show. That is the last thing I want to do.'"
The whole ordeal seems to be behind us. Norm learned a valuable lesson in dealing with the entertainment press. While he thought he was telling jokes, the entertainment reporters thought they were Meet the Press. Something with which other comics like Bill Burr have more experience.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to start binge-watching Norm Macdonald Has a Show.
