SJWs Coming After Chris Rock, Ricky Gervais for a 2011 Clip
A problematic clip was unearthed this weekend. By "unearthed," I mean a leftist bitch baby was looking for something for which he could be offended. Par for the course when your life has no real direction. And you smell so bad humans won't tolerate your presence. Anyhoo, a clip from Talking Funny did the trick. In 2011, HBO had a show where Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Ricky Gervais, and Louis CK discussed comedy. This was pre-Louis becoming THAT Louis (see This Radio Host Has the Perfect Response to Louis C.K. Outrage and Norm Macdonald Speaks Out On Louis CK Banishment).
Four comedy legends discussing being funny. When a certain five or six letter word (depending on usage) came up. That's where the outrage comes in.
I know black folks who are completely comfortable with white people saying the n-word in their presence. Have had t… https://t.co/46ymPPVp3l— Jemele Hill (@Jemele Hill)1545529766.0
Here's some of the stupid reactions:
Activist @deray asked, "What was Chris Rock thinking?"
"You know how many other ways Louis C.K. could’ve gotten his point across without saying the N-word?" @AbeFroman tweeted. "I also blame Chris Rock for not checking him. How many (people) watching probably thought to themselves, 'I can say this around my black friends now.' "
"Note how proud Ricky Gervais was of the fact he used the n-word," Hill continued. "And Louis CK basically said he’s one because black folks ain’t (expletive). Chris Rock is getting crucified, but those other two deserve massive smoke."
I line up with Jerry Seinfeld when it comes to the word. Which is all I have to say about it.
But this story is more about the practice of retroactive outrage. We saw it recently with Kevin Hart and the Oscars. Or the Heisman winner and his tweets from when he was a tween. Hell, people even tried to get Seinfeld on an entirely different issue. Leftists scour old tweets and anything you may have said at any time ever to find reason to banish you from society. Then when five of them tweet the same stupid opinion, alleged legit news sites run their outrage uncritically. Never questioning "why the outrage now?" Because clickbait ad revenue makes up 50% of our GDP. Or so it seems. Challenging the left on anything just makes them call you a racist sexist transphobic islamophobe who hates the gays.
What's the endgame? A press release from HBO with an apology written by their PR firm? You're sure as hell not going to get it any of that from Seinfeld, Rock, or Gervais.
Or is it more the people writing this crap hit their click quota for the month, do some damage to people's reputation in the eyes of internet crap gremlins, then move onto something else. Note the absence of a question mark following the previous sentence.
