Cancel Culture Isn’t A Thing, You Snowflakes – Some More News


(inquisitive music) – Breaking news, that
this is some more of. Professional
guy-you-only-just-heard-about,
Shane Gillis, was recently canceled
from “Saturday Night Live” over telling a few jokes. And what kind of liberal fascist 1984 dystopian future are we living in where a good, honest American is denied such a basic human right as being hired by a lukewarm late night television show just because he pushed a few
boundaries with his humor? Isn’t that what humor is all about? Pushing boundaries with edgy
side-splitting jabs like… – Damn, Chinatown’s (bleep) nuts. – [Host] It’s crazy. – It is full (bleep) China. Dude, it’s (bleep) Chine-ee down there. – I wonder how that started? They just built one
(bleep) up looking building and people were like, all right? No one said anything– – That’s (bleep) Chinks live there, huh? – This just in, ha ha ha ha,
what a joke he just told. What with the whole set up of the joke and punchline of that joke
clearly formatted like a joke, as opposed to a guy just
saying off-hand racial slurs. This is what jokes are. Let’s hear another joke. – It’s funny, too, ’cause
that’s more annoying than any other minority
playing music at a restaurant loud on their phone.
– You think an Asian– – An Asian trying to learn English bothers me more than
someone listening to, like, Lil Uzi Vert while I’m
trying to eat (bleep) dinner. – That’s hilarious. Yes, that’s hilarious. What a hilarious joke
where you are bothered by Asian people trying to learn English, and other hilarious jokes like calling people (bleep) and stuff. Now in Shane’s defense, his offer to apologize
if anyone wants him to does mention that he’s been mostly bad at comedy for the last 10 years. But honestly we’re not here to (bleep) on this specific guy. You know, he got SNL and he lost it. And aside from the casual racism and homophobia and racial slurs, he’s not unfunny. He was in a sketch a year ago about a fireman who saves a family and during the interview
the reporter brings up this. – The family of four was saved thanks to the efforts of one
firefighter, Shane McGillis. Shane, you fought this
fire for three hours. – Yeah, yeah, yeah, it was
pretty brutal up there. – Can you confirm this is you? – And like that’s funny. The sketch devolves into the reporter digging up Trump stuff and
blowing some out of proportion and actively trying to
get the fireman fired and then he does and it’s a funny. It’s a good, not untrue point
and Shane is funny in it. And I think it actually
would have been interesting to introduce his point of
view to a some might say, lukewarm and annoyingly
liberal comedy show that ultimately challenges
nothing about the status quo, if that’s why they wanted to hire him. But actually, apparently, they just wanted to appeal to more people and make more money by hiring
like a token Trumpy kinda guy and then they were surprised
when that manifested in some homophobia and racial slurs, and that’s hilarious. Funniest thing SNL’s done in years. If Shane did it on purpose, as a bit, (bleep) man, you’re brilliant, good joke. But, of course, whether or not you think the casual racial slurs and complaining about Asian
people trying to learn English are jokes or even funny jokes, like pushing aside the humor aspect, it totally seems indicative that this brand new outrage culture, it’s new and real, is digging through everyone’s
past like this, huh, you know? Jim Jefferies and Bill Burr, am I right? – Well, this is just Cancel-culture. The guy shouldn’t have been fired. It’s just a couple of
things back in his history. We’re gonna go through everyone’s history? – You just scroll through, help cat out of a tree, that’s not it. (laughing) Help grandmother walk across
the street, that’s not it. You know? Said something on a podcast, there it is! (laughing) I mean, you could do that, you could honestly do that to anybody. – Yeah, who the heck are these PC warriors tireless digging through
this guy’s history to find one little a bunch of mistakes from his youth back in September of 2018? Fun aside, that is also a perfect summary of what’s actually happening here, in that clip Bill Burr later
makes a really awkward joke about Asian people at lumber yards and no one really laughs that hard because it just didn’t
quite work as a joke. And then he gets mad that
no one laughed that hard and accuses the audience of being too PC. – If you say something like that you can’t work on a sketch show but it’s okay for what? He can work at a lumber yard? (laughing)
Yeah? He’s certainly gonna meet
more Asians there, right? (laughing) Than on SNL! It’s a joke about how
SNL’s not hiring Asians. Jesus Christ, now I’m in trouble? – It’s almost like if you’re
famous enough as a comedian you feel entitled to immediate praise and blame the audience
when a joke doesn’t work despite it being a funny
observation about SNL not hiring Asians until this year. But whatever, we’re gonna move on. I’m sure that has nothing to do with any of the rest of what
we’re gonna talk about. So let’s actually back up for a second before we dive into the
idea of Cancel-culture. First, by defining what it is for the sake of this conversation. But also because it seems
that a lot of the time Cancel-culture is just, it’s people being mad
at your (bleep) opinion. Like if you write a bad
column in a newspaper or tweet about how much harmless fun it is getting your face dicked-in and everyone tells you it’s (bleep), you’re not being canceled, you just did a bad job. That racist kid getting
booted from Harvard wasn’t canceled, but he was kicked from an institution for apparently violating their standards. Now, I’m not saying you
have to agree with that, or that mob justice is good because a lot of the times it’s very bad, and public shaming can
really get out of hand. Social media, digital photos,
better record keeping, and the internet in general has created a situation where everyone’s past is going to be painfully available. And as Millennials grow older, we’ll have to figure out
how to deal with that and what the forgiveness process will be. It’s extremely complicated and
distressing to think about. But it often seems like the large canopy of the Cancel-culture phrase often makes it hard to address, which is why I’m really
going to hone it in. I’m not talking about a bunch of people dog-piling some rando for
saying dumb (bleep) on Twitter that never would have gotten attention had someone pointed it out. I’m talking about famous
people, comedians, entertainers being canceled or fired from jobs or gigs because someone dug up
an offensive statement or tweet or photo from their past. That is, after all, why
we’re using the word canceled and why any recent
article about the subject is specifically talking about
people like Shane Gillis or that Justin Trudeau
fellow from Up America with all the trees. Also to be clear, the idea that a person’s
entire career could be ruined, like ended over a couple
of offensive tweets is terrible and I’m not a fan of that. Unsubscribe. Luckily, that’s literally
never really happened really. Like it’s not a thing, at all. You don’t believe me? Just ask my good friend Bill Burr again. This time saying that
Cancel-culture isn’t a problem. – But I mean, I don’t go on stage and worry about what people are thinking. It’s a really weird time where people are just bringing this all the time like this is a major problem. I’m not experiencing it. I think it’s like a half-a-dozen
stories and like usual, they’re tryna act like you
know, the sky is falling. It isn’t. – This version of him is right. The answer to the question, “Has Cancel-culture
and SJWs gone too far?” is a resounding, not really. Most audiences love offensive (bleep) and the few who don’t usually walk out, Twitter hasn’t changed that. In fact, name a comedian or entertainer who has their career canceled over a few statements or jokes they made, like truly canceled. Rosanne Barr, she’s
probably the closest one, although she’s currently
planning a comeback as we speak. James Gunn, not exactly like it actually affected his career. And he is, in fact, back at
the job he was fired from, plus a Suicide Squad do-over film featuring only some of the original cast that we’re apparently going
to just allow DC to do. But anyway, not related. Gilbert Gottfried is no longer a duck because he made fun of dead people, but his career isn’t over. Paula Deen, you know,
that real racist lady is currently hosting cooking
shows like nothing happened. Alec Baldwin just got
his own Celebrity Roast. Heck, even Mel
“The-Jews-Start-All-The-Wars “Sugar-Tits” Gibson has received multiple Oscar nominations
in the last few years. Then Gary Oldman defended him, said that Hollywood was “run by Jews” and went on to win an
Oscar for Best Actor. So thanks, all the Jews
that run Hollywood, for that award you gave him, or so I’ve heard from Gary Oldman. Scarlet Johansson is a torrent
of hilariously bad comments and we (bleep) love her. SNL fired Jenny Slate for
saying not racial slurs, but the word (bleep) at
midnight on a Saturday. She, too, is doing great. Another person who got literally canceled was Bill Maher’s Politically Incorrect, and it wasn’t because he
offended the snowflakes by being racist or homophobic or when he compared mentally
disabled people to dogs or the numerous times he’s
said it’s totally cool for a female teacher to (bleep) their 14-year-old male students, or any number of his other terrible, lazy, scumbag opinions he espouses on his long-running not-canceled
show currently on HBO. No, Politically Incorrect got canceled because Maher implied the
United States was cowardly for launching missiles
from 1000 miles away and then the White House Press Secretary used his government position to condemn private citizen Maher and sponsors pulled because
he insulted the troops and then he got canceled. So maybe the real snowflakes are our government and military. (inquisitive music) But again, this isn’t a
judgment on these people or whether or not they should have faced harsher consequences, or whether or not the actual
(bleep) up free speech issue is when a comedian gets canceled for insulting the government and military. Those opinions are up to you, the viewer. Rather, I’m just asking
the simple question, who exactly has been canceled? Sinead O’Connor for criticizing the pope? Yeah. But where’s the Cancel-culture epidemic that’s going around and
hurting these poor celebrities? I’ll go even further and
mention some celebrities who not only said (bleep)
things, but did (bleep) things. Roman Polanski is a rapist and yet also has won all the awards and even got to be in a Rush Hour film where he played a rapist as a comedy bit. – So we can go now? – This will just take a moment. Welcome to Paris. – Oh (bleep). Casey Affleck drunkenly and nakedly got into the bed of the cinematographer of the film he was working on, and is still directing
and starring in movies putting him very much in a power position. TJ Miller has been accused of rape and definitely called-in
a fake bomb threat within the same year he was
in a (bleep) Spielberg film. I could go on for a solid hour. Like, once you actually go down the list, you realize that the pearl-clutching panic has nothing to do with
offended Millennials so much as entitled rich
people who are upset that there are now
slightly more consequences to their actions. And that, incredibly, it turns
out that big corporate giants like Marvel and Saturday Night Live sometimes, but not always,
play it safe when it comes to not hiring absolute ghouls or mild ghouls. That’s it, the big outrage is that potentially racist or abusive people aren’t getting all the power
they think they deserve while still probably
getting too much power. While it has a lot of funny moments, this is painfully evident in Dave Chappelle’s new standup special… – Against all the odds, Kevin became the most famous comedian
this world has ever seen and he got the job that only on black man before him had had. He was gonna host the 80th Oscars. And I don’t know what
you know about Kevin, but I know Kevin Hart
is damn near perfect, as close to perfect as
anybody I’ve ever seen. In fact, Kevin is precisely four tweets shy of being perfect. (laughing) – Just to be clear, which is a phrase I feel
like I’ll have to use a lot, that new special has a lot of great jokes. But it’s also peppered with moments that feel suspiciously like
one rich guy complaining that his other rich friends aren’t getting exactly what they want. Kevin Hart isn’t entitled
to host the (bleep) Oscars, a position designed for wide audiences that should be vetted. Like, how much do we need to feel bad that the guy who just had a major role in the 7th highest
grossing film of the year didn’t have everything perfectly
laid out for his career because he made garbage
homophobic comments as a joke in 2010, about
hurting his son if he was gay? A bit I hope his son never
sees, especially if he’s gay. Now, to be clearer than clearest, Chappelle even acknowledges
during his special that he isn’t exactly impartial
in defending his friends. And even clear-iest, the only reason I’m talking
about Sticks and Stones is because it’s oddly the
subject of a weird internet war concerning Cancel-culture. But what is kind of frustrating is to see so many comedians like him complain that PC culture is out of control and that they aren’t allowed
to say anything they want while literally saying anything they want on a $60 million dollar platform on the biggest streaming service around. Like, you just can’t be the underdog when you’re standing
on a pile of dead dogs. You can’t complain that
audiences are too sensitive to an audience that’s clearly
loving your offensive material on a special that’s
breaking ratings records. So, no, Cancel-culture as in
seeing harsh mob consequences for famous people who’ve done or said racist or sexist or offensive things, doesn’t actually exist. And, in fact, maybe should exist more? Like, really. Like, again, I’m not for someone losing their entire career or
livelihood over a (bleep) joke, a thing that, again, isn’t happening, and it would be great if our society had a strong social safety net to help the few canceled
racists out there to survive. But here’s another part
from that Chappelle special that better explains
what I’m talking about. – They ruined this nigga’s life and now he’s coming back
playing comedy clubs. – That’s Dave describing Louis CK, a comedian who was called
out by the snowflakes for masturbating in front
of female colleagues at his place of work, after a comedy festival, on the pilot of a TV show, on the phone with another comedian trying to network with him. Like this isn’t a few offensive jokes, but a literal workplace harassment issue. And according to Chappelle,
they “ruined his life” for it. But also according to Chappelle, in literally the same sentence, he’s coming back playing comedy clubs. You know, because they
didn’t actually ruin his life and he’s, in fact, still got a career despite being a literal sex offender. – [Announcer] Ladies
and gentlemen, Louis CK. (cheering and applauding) – Look at him, getting
that standing ovation. His life is ruined! Jeez, when will we stop
destroying the lives of men by denying them everything
they ever wanted because they whipped their
dicks out in front of women who didn’t want them to? Oh yeah, that poor, poor Bret. Must have been hard to almost not, but ultimately get a lifetime appointment on the supreme court. Gosh darn, Cancel-culture almost holding powerful people accountable for things but not actually doing that. It’s almost as if, and
I’m just spitballin’ here, a word that probably means something wildly different to Kavanaugh but it’s almost as if this idea of outrage and Cancel-culture
is creating a backlash to completely normal consequences and powerful rich people who’ve
done objectively bad things are being hailed as a hero
underdog in certain corners. It’s the equivalent of Trump’s “Presidential Harassment” tweets, a person who has all the power, complaining about critique
from marginalized groups, pretending to be the bullied while having all of the actual authority. The reality is that nothing has changed except a new way for people
to communicate their critiques and a new way for powerful
people to deflect accountability. PC culture isn’t killing comedy. Millennials aren’t overly sensitive. The people who whine that you can’t make a film like Blazing Saddles anymore also like to conveniently forget that time Robert Downey Jr. got an Oscar nomination for literally doing blackface in a comedy from only 10 years ago. He, of course, lost to
a man dressed as a clown because movies are weird and dumb. But to be fair and balanced
and a real cool news daddy, it’s technically true that you
can’t make Blazing Saddles, a comedy from the 70s, today. Just like how you can’t
make a horror movie from the 70s today, or do or say a lot of
things from the 70s today. You can’t because you wouldn’t. Things that were said and done then don’t need to necessarily
be said and done now, because that’s how time works, you know? Like take this specific moment
that’s happening right now. Like right now, not now,
but right before now. It’s already moving away but the moment from a few
seconds ago I was talking about, in that moment our
society had specific rules for what’s considered taboo and offensive, and those things tend to
change as time progresses. It’s just how that works. So when people say (bleep) like, “Dave Chappelle didn’t change, you did,” Yup, that’s true. Good work identifying time. Like, things have changed. Our president is a ghoul
trying to roll back protections for transgender people and bullying women and being openly racist and doing just generally (bleep) all for marginalized groups in this country. So maybe jokes about that subject aren’t going to be as accepted
by mainstream society. Seinfeld, the show, could be irreverent, but there’s a reason it
didn’t have a running joke about a man threatening to beat
the (bleep) out of his wife. Also, some jokes get old, like people. If the one trans joke all
of these people are saying is I identify as a
something-that-isn’t-a-gender, every one of them say this, then maybe people are just
bored with your one joke you saw on Reddit 10 years ago. Like by all means, make whatever
jokes you want, I guess, but also don’t be surprised if
people don’t want to hear it. Or if you lose large
corporate gigs for it, or if your audience slowly
becomes a bunch of racists, or I guess you run an extremely
successful YouTube channel despite being kind of
a (bleep) Nazi clown, Things change, kind of? But actually not enough? Thanks, internet! No seriously, thanks,
I really need this job, if one can even call it that. But you know what didn’t change? The process in which famous people see consequences from big companies for saying or doing
things deemed offensive by mainstream society. Like here’s a CBS sports
commentator named Jimmy The Greek, who got fired back in the 80s
for being a real weird racist. Is he a victim of Cancel-culture? Eddie Murphy said a bunch of terrible shit about gay people and
then apologized about it in the 90s when people spoke up. Martin Lawrence was
barred from NBC in the 90s for doing offensive standup comedy. Damon Waynes was fired from
SNL in that same decade for making a character flamboyantly gay. Then there was that time Lisa Bonet appeared in a very adult film and was nearly fired for
it from The Cosby Show due to objections from Bill Cosby. This is just capitalism and
the entertainment industry. It’s just comedy and it’s nothing new. Really, the only thing that
you could say has changed is that famous celebrities and comedians have way more direct
exposure to criticism. You could go on Twitter right now and call Tom Hanks a
dick-witted (bleep) receptacle and he might read it. I don’t know why you’d want to do that, but you could is my point. And the irony is that we’re
not seeing an epidemic of overly-sensitive PC-obsessed
Millennial audiences, but actually overly-sensitive performers who don’t like the
realization that perhaps, they aren’t always on the mark, that, perhaps, times are changing
and they need to keep up. But instead of accepting
that, they blame the audience. You know, to the point where they’re so focused on
responding to Cancel-culture that they forget to be all that funny. Like here’s Adam Corolla on
the latest Comedy Central Roast spending like a minute-and-a-half responding to imaginary people he predicts will be offended by the show. – And if I can ray it
for just one minute here, you’re a great sport, you
have a great sense of humor, unlike the social justice warriors who are gonna be out there tweeting that all the jokes are problematic. You people can blow me,
you pussy fuck sticks. (cheering and applauding) This is a (bleep) roast! Comedians need a place
where they can be offensive without your bullshit, fake outrage, (cheering) you hashtag heroes! – A thing that didn’t happen. That clip continues and continues
to be very embarrassing. I won’t show you the whole thing. Because we all know what roasts are, Adam. We also know what bad jokes are. Like, perhaps when Jerry Seinfeld makes a gay French king joke at a college and no one laughs, it’s because the audience is
like 45 years younger than him and don’t think the act of being gay is an edgy punchline anymore. He should know that, right? After all, this is the
demographic of his ideal date. So um, you wanna (bleep)
some teens, Jerry? You might want to update that material, polish that teen (bleep) material, Jerry. You objectively-a-teen (bleep), you. Jerry, the teen (bleep). Where was I? All right, so you know what
also helps with this stuff? Apologizing. And I mean like not just saying I’m sorry if anyone
out there was offended, but seriously brah, get thicker skin,” but actually apologizing. Because a lot of the reason someone like Shane Gillis got (bleep) canned has to do with the way he handled the scandal after the fact. Showing that he didn’t have what it took to deal with the heat or that he stuck to his principles and was like no, the casual racial slurs were pushing boundaries, this is my fight song, I won’t apologize, and SNL was like okay we’re
a cowardly institution and we want money, so bye. Even the Washington (bleep)
Examiner recognized this fact while still managing to pretend Cancel-culture in general was a problem, which it really isn’t but whatever. Apologies matter. So many people who complain
about Cancel-culture and our society’s lack of
forgiveness forgets that. Jonah Hill did a pretty good one. Dan Harmon super apologized. Even Justin Bieber understood the very basic steps
needed for an apology. Do you forgive them? That’s up to you. But they apologized in
a seemingly sincere way, recognizing what they did
wrong and why it was wrong, and then continued with
their careers, uncanceled. Because a lot of the time that’s all a company and
the public needs to hear. We want to forgive these people. It literally took two racist scandals over the span of four years for us to cancel Mel Gibson, who continues to work in movies and is, in fact, not canceled. Remember that Kevin Hart Oscar story? He literally just had
to apologize and didn’t. That’s why he wasn’t the host. Not because of Cancel-culture, but ego, the refusal to own up
to basic consequences, the brazen pride in not
progressing with the times. Which again, is fine but you can’t also whine
about Outrage-culture because, I don’t know if
you’ve figured it out yet, it’s not a thing, it’s a myth. OJ Simpson has 900,000 Twitter followers. Donald Trump bragged about groping women and became a, that can’t be right, president? But sure, humor changes. You need to evolve. Remember that pretty gosh darn funny comic from all those Comedy Central roasts named Lisa Lampenelli? Probably one of the edgiest comics when it came to insult humor dealing with race and sexual orientation? She recently retired
and became a life coach. And her reasoning wasn’t
that audiences were too PC or that Millennials are too sensitive, nor did she put out a comedy
special called Triggered where she complained about
how she can’t say the n-word. No, this was her reason. – So, now that we’re in such crazy times where kids are killing themselves because they’re going through hard things, where people are having a
hard time being transgender, where people are crapped
on because they’re women or because they’re minorities, and I just said I wanna do something that has absolutely, no-mistake-about-it, has a positive message. And, again, it doesn’t
mean not being funny, it doesn’t mean crying, it doesn’t mean at least it’s for charity, it doesn’t mean that it’s
not gonna be who I really am. ‘Cause the real me now is somebody who kinda grew up and said oh, I’m absolutely
gonna have some positive freaking message for people. – Hey, look at the very self-aware person evolving with the times
and rationally explaining why that’s totally okay to do. Because yeah, it’s really tough to be a certain demographic of people right now, and people are hurting
themselves and getting hurt. And so maybe when a rich
celebrity says a slur, we should hold them accountable and not necessarily allow
them to have a wide reach on say, a major variety TV
show or the (bleep) Oscars. It’s really not any more
complicated than that. I get that no one wants to be
the person offended by a joke. No one wants to feel like
the pie is in their face. And that’s probably why there’s this weird everyone-is-too-sensitive pushback. Like, sure, I can’t stress enough that comedians are allowed to say whatever the (bleep) they want and that people shouldn’t
have their lives ruined over a few jokes. But I also can’t stress enough that this isn’t what’s happening. It’s just, some consequences. Can’t say racist (bleep)
and also be on SNL the year they finally
hired an Asian person. Not a controversial statement. Being an entertainer is
literally about knowing this. It’s about knowing how words work and that while no word should be censored, the context of using
those words super matter. Like I wonder if there’s someone who can point this out better than me? – There’s absolutely nothing wrong with any of those words
in and of themselves, they’re only words! It’s the context that counts. It’s the user, it’s the
intention behind the words that makes them good or bad. The words are completely neutral, the words are innocent. I get tired of people talking about bad words and bad language. (bleep) It’s the context
that makes them good or bad. The context that makes them good or bad. – Hey, That old dead man
is super duper right. Words are tools. You can use them to build something fantastic or funny or profound, or you can use them to hurt
people who don’t deserve it in painfully un-entertaining ways. And sometimes, like tools,
words have to be used very carefully to avoid disaster. Like a chainsaw or whatever this thing is. It’s up to the craftsmen to
understand that very basic idea. And that Shane Gillis guy? (bleep) craftsman, though again, he’s pretty funny in that sketch about the hero fireman getting fired for being a Trump supporter. – What the (bleep)? – Was this you last night?
(burp) – Are we not talking about the fire? – This is about whether or not you are fit to be fighting fire the night after a bender. – But like, you know that old dead guy I just showed video of? He did a joke making fun of mass deaths that was probably not un-funny. It was for a special plan to be titled “I Kinda Like It When a Lotta People Die”. And happened to be recorded on the days of September 9th and 10th of 2001. And the next day something else happened and he cut the bit and
he changed the special, because he was a man very
aware of the time he lived in and what words were and
weren’t appropriate. He knew that while comedy
technically has no boundaries, good comedy totally does. People love to pull out the Carlin card, ah, Carlin would hate
these sensitive babies, these whiny Millennials so sensitive about racism and sexism. And maybe, but I’m going to quickly read another quote from Carlin
about Andrew Dice Clay. And I’m already on the edge of my seat wondering if it will have anything to do with everything we’ve talked about or even specific people
we’ve talked about. (clearing throat) “Most comedians, myself
included, pick on people “who have some power and
position and abuse it. “But Clay, he picks on
foreigners, homosexuals and women “who are all underdogs in this society. “And it makes me wonder
what he’s thinking, “because he says all these
things and his audience responds “because he plays to their prejudices. “But he’s Jewish and doesn’t he know “that these same people who hate gays “and foreigners and women “have Jews somewhere on their list?” So uh, yeah, shut the (bleep) up about the evils of Cancel-culture, you insufferable snowflakes. Also, you are babies. Big stupid babies with dick-shaped heads and vagina mouths, big talking babies with
like bulbus phallic forms and floppy labia jack-jawing orifices and a lot of veins. Everywhere there’s veins. That’s you right now. It’s disgusting. And frankly I’m pretty offended by it. And furthermore. (inquisitive music) Surprise, we’ve been uncanceled. Thanks for watching. If you disagree, that’s fine. Sound off in the comments

  1. this guy is a complete retard – he is talking about how "NOBODY IS REALLY AFFECTED FROM CANCEL CULTURE" bringing up Mel Gibson and Paula and all those people not realizing that they are REAL HUMAN BEINGS that all those public shaming scandals DRAMATICALLY affected their families and personal lives and how people see them and their daily life experiences. We should all correct each other when somebody does something wrong and teach them how to be right, but just to completely blast people and cancel them and public shaming for ONE MISTAKE that is probably just a different opinion is sadistic as fuck and shows the dark side of hateful humans who just hate anybody opposing them and find pleasure in seeing others suffer as that gives them some kind of satisfaction because they are probably unaccomplished in their lives or bitter so now seeing a successful public figure suffering to suicide gives them a creepy satisfaction as they sit back in their miserable broke lives in their basement somewhere.

  2. I agree with you on most of the vid but just check you facts on pewdiepie cause he’s not a racist or a nazi he just said a few bad jokes and actually apologized for it

  3. i would argue that on the left at least, cancel culture is an issue that we can overcome. for example earlier this month Contrapoints uploaded a video that featured a transmed for 12 seconds (not talking about truscum either) and was so dogpiled on twitter that she had to delete her account. this is unwarranted and ineffectual.

  4. OMG that "Dave Chapelle" from the netflix standup freaks me the fuck out. Im sorry, call me a crazy conspiracy nut, but thats not the real Dave Chapelle. Thats a clone and seeing him on video really scares me. It looks almost just like him but the body build is different, the voice is completely different, and other subtle things about how he looks. I think the illuminati killed him back around when he ran off to hide in Africa for talking about them in public. Then the took a sample from the dead body and figured they might as well clone him since he was so popular, and use him as a puppet. Im too scared to watch the new guys whole netflix special, but from what ive heard people say about it, its not the attitude of the original either. His own sister has said this guys not Dave. RIP Dave Chapelle

  5. I disagree. I absolutely believe cancel culture is a thing but you are right that people in hollywood mostly complain about it. It is a problem that people cant let the past go, but sometimes you cant let it go. Its very confusing i know, but either people get cancelled for a joke or a mistake when they dont deserve it or for nothing at all sometimes or people dont get hit hard enough. We should just all agree that if someone made a joke or a comment a few years ago then they should apologize and be done with it and learn from their past mistakes, but that if you jerk off in front of unwilling people then you should lose everything for doing something so horrendous

  6. I don't care about Kevin Hart not hosting the Oscar, but I think we should allow people room to evolve, rather than defining them by their past comments/beliefs. It's not productive. We should focus on the here and now.

  7. That "skit" with the firefighter found wearing the maga hat had me going: "Okay and…" That wasn't a joke because there's no payoff, no landing, nothing. There literally was no joke in that "skit".

  8. If people don't think your jokes aren't funny its not because your audience is full of "snowflakes" its because your jokes aren't funny dude idk what to tell you. Comedians get mad over the annoyance of criticism, not so called "silencing"

  9. my thing is why y'all knocking they hustle don't like it don't go see it, not what you're looking for look at a different thing. Most of them are mad because you have a group of people who feel every joke is ok until it's about them might be the issue. And if you don't want to support ppl don't you have your options. But to say that people don't try to cancel people is a lie, but it's nothing new there's just a few people who need therapy, but don't wanna admit it, so they blame someone else for how they hurt themselves. Y'all make it seem like those people don't have valid points, when you bring a contradicting statement out of context. It's not like this is actually news seems like a pro people pleasing thing. And everyone is against racism all of a sudden until you see a black guy getting shot by an off duty cop and that's not racist how she lied on what he was doing and she feared because it was a black man, STFU you can't have it both ways like you said. And if people feel like it's crazy we can talk about everyone else, but the LGBT community like how they just tried to ban South Park you don't think there's a issue there? like people who don't like the joke when it's about them try to cancel people when they're referenced but laugh at a black joke about how they like chicken, or Spanish people who try to speak English, but the 1 joke about how they feel different and it's funny or how they're homophobic which they can't be because they're biased towards them

  10. I see a red thread here… The lefty ones that get cancelled, comes back, the ones on the right, get banned on social media.

  11. A lot of good points in this video, but kinda missing the point. You keep saying "Cancel Culture isn't a thing" but keep mentioning countless times people wanted celebrities cancelled. Cancel Culture is a thing. Wether or not it's effective is another thing. And as you mentioned, it can work in their favor. Culture isn't law. Culture is the culture. The culture is "we want this person or thing to be cancelled" and it's very VERY apparent for better or worse, otherwise you wouldn't be talking about it for 30 minutes. Like you, I also think people shouldn't be immune to sensitivities of modern society. And lots of people have done horrible things that should have been cancelled years ago. But that doesn't change the fact that many people get "cancelled" left and right. Maybe for a day, maybe for the rest of their life. Maybe they deserved it. Maybe they didn't. But the point is: the culture wants them cancelled. That's what Cancel Culture is. If there's any reason why Dave Chapelle is doing so well it's BECAUSE of the Cancel Culture. Does not mean every attempt needs to be successful for it to be real.

  12. So just because you think xenophobia is funny doesn't mean your audience has to, rich famous guy? And now your feelings are hurt because not enough people find you funny to keep you in a position that is largely about people paying money, one way or another, to listen to you because they like what you have to say? I 'm so totally not sorry. Maybe update your worldview for the 21st century, instead of clinging to the 19th.

  13. Cancel culture is the modern day Nazi book burning; a bunch of angry socialists destroying anything that doesn't agree with their political narrative.

  14. Why not bring up Onision ? The probably a pedo dude whos getting barated by mostly 14yearolds that just hate him and dont give a shit about his victims…. Why not leave it to the authorities????? and chris hansen ….
    7:00 what youre going to say proves that you know that it can easily go to far and become a problem yet it hasnt happened yet so fck it?
    DO we have to rename it so that people cant use , "Oh but they werent completely cancelled" as an excuse?
    I definetly see where hes coming from in this video but then again . DO we just hold this position of its all fine until it gets out of hand?
    18:30 I might acutally be interested in you covering pewdiepie and him being a "nazi clown" , If you could actually make a good case for it .

    He does raise some good points by the end and after this i definetly wont look at dave chapelle defending kevin or ck the same way and all the similiar situations that are bound to happen.
    This situation really isnt so black and white as all of us are actually presenting it. Its consttanly being looked at from either the pont of view " cancel culture is a problem" and " cancel culture isnt a problem" ….

  15. Sooooo….. we're just gonna pretend Kevin Spacy and Bill Cosby never existed? I'm fine with that actually, but it kinda puts a dent the size of a BT Voidout in this argument.

  16. Louis ck is not a sex offender. He didn't touch those women and he even asked them if it's ok for them to wipe his dick out. I know it's still disgusting and no one wants that to happen to anybody they knew but still he didn't force himself on them.

  17. The people complaining about cancel culture are the same people who told you to stop taking the Internet seriously when they bully autistic people, as well as saying that people being assholes online is to be expected. It's obvious how fake this shit. Cancel culture is the best non-violent way to get people to change their behavior

  18. So in France in the 60' 70' there was this comedian named Pierre Desproges, he had a very dark sens of humor and make fun of everything in very intelligent ways. He once said something like "you can laugh about everything but not with everyone" which most people today undestrands as "huh some people are so fragile they can't take a joke" and every time you heard about an outrage of some sort you will have someone going "we don't have free speech anymore! What would Desproges says?" . What desproges actually meant was "yeah we can totally do jokes but maybe not with goddamn nazis" and I guess my point is France got a Carvin 50 years ago

  19. that’s why Blazing Saddles was made. to address racism in both Western movies and in America. the context matters.

  20. I wonder what SMN thinks of people like ProJared, Tobuscus and Mumkey Jones. Why don't they just become accountable for their own horrible, reprehensible actions?

    Oh wait.

  21. God this comment section is embarrassing…. cancele culture definitely exists but it doesn't mean your whole career is over and you'll never work again. Look at what happened to Don Cherry and Carson King (the Venmo guy who was going to donate a million dollars to a sick kids charity) for example.

    There's a great YouTube channel called Vito (has 170k subscribers) that has videos about cancel culture and Social Justice Warriors.

    Who cares what people say? I say faggot on a daily basis. Does it mean I hate homosexuals? No, I say nigga when rapping along to rap music, does it mean I hate black people? Nope, they're just words and people only look for these things not because they care about who is being "attacked" but because the celebrities are rich and famous.

  22. I agree with the vast majority of the points made in this video, but I have to point out that saying that Louis CK’s still has a career is a bit disingenuous. He played a show at a tiny club because one owner decided to take the risk and let him play a short set. Prior to the scandal, he could play wherever he wanted, was making a Hollywood film, and was being payed well by Netflix for his comedy specials. That’s not to say that he doesn’t deserve these consequences because he totally does, but it’s just incorrect to imply he came out the other side unscathed.

  23. You missed Donald Trump banning comedians over Michelle Wolf's presidential roast which was a long standing tradition. He and other conservatives were ridiculously triggered over that comedian telling jokes. Obama was called a bomb happy warmonger during a roast and didn't ban it.

  24. This is a helpful perspective and something the whining comedians should see. Then again they probably already know because Bill Burr essentially admitted it in that one short moment of truth where you captured him stating cancel culture isn't actually a big deal.

  25. Something stops being a joke once it hurts someone or a group of people. You can hurt people with sweet words (hidden behind sarcasm which I love), ignorance (hidden behind a funny joke which I fall into from time to time), or a funny thought (just because I thought of sthg funny that I would like to share). I think of funny absurdities all the time, but that does not mean that if I say them out loud they will not hurt other people no matter how funny my jokes are.

    I believe that there should be a limit. Once it hurts someone, you stop. You keep your joke for yourself and laugh as if you are crazy while everyone is looking. Not everything we think, say, laugh at are supposed to be told out loud or written for people to read. A saying was formulated as such: the freedom of one stops once that of another person starts. It is not because you are comfortable with something that someone else should be comfortable with it. If they are not, you stop. You go somewhere else and do it. Not everything you say or do are right just because they seem to be ok.

  26. I agree with the overall statement, but think there were a few poor examples. The RDJ thing is in other comments already so I won’t discuss it. Kevin Hart did apologize. He just refused to keep apologizing over and over again. The Dave Chappelle thing is related. There may be a couple more, but I’m not going to go back through the video. Very enjoyable. Thank you.

  27. Thus is my problem with cancel culture, people point out some valid criticism that cause a small number of rabid people to bring pitchforks which makes the people being criticized throw a fit in return without actually understanding the criticism. It's sad that people get too caught up by the few overbearing people to try an become better.

  28. Can we stop with the Felix is a racist shit, or more racist than any ahole calling him on swearing or doing stupid shit. It's funny how most of the enraged are of an age that their worst behavior was prior to camera phones and therefore unprovable. Louie C.k., in spite of his issues quite rightly said fuck you for saying "n word" because you day that and I think the word, fuck you for making me think the word and making me feel guilty while you're absolved…

  29. Yeah, I feel so bad for all of these entitled rich people not getting to say and do whatever they want while doing and saying whatever they want.

  30. Can anything really kill a career? Jimmy Swaggert cried his way back to the pulpit after breaking all the rules he was supposed to be preaching.

  31. In the world of The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones I am actually sick of people posting on Facebook "Wow, anyone remember The Beverly Hillbillies? Thanks to snowflake libtards you couldn't make THAT show today!" Yes, because of the powerful hillbilly lobby.

  32. I saw a writer from the man show do stand-up and get super pissy with us (the audience) for not laughing. Your point on comedians of a certain status feeling entitled to praise feels spot on.

  33. Of course Cancel Culture is hardly a thing if you exclude every instance where the victim has a net worth of less than 1M dollars.
    Even accessibility to Health Care isn't an issue if that's how you're going to define phrases.

    Even so; the fact that A LOT of rich & famous people right now have a career built on nothing but sending hate mobs at "problematic" twitter users is disturbing to say the least.

  34. I think this is the first video I've watched in a while where I read the title and said "no, that's silly," and the video changed my mind. Cut that out, I'm trying to kill brain cells here not grow them

  35. Wow this vid is dogshit TBH. Has his facts wrong on Louis CK's "victims", not to mention the millions of dollars missed over years directly due to CANCEL CULTURE; and criticizing Chappelle over jokes is pathetic. Go fuck yourself dude

  36. I am literally someone who's career was ended via cancel culture, and I didn't deserve it. Why? I cosplayed an anime character, and someone thought she was 17 when she's 18.
    That's it.
    But even I consider situations like mine a necessary evil in the long run. We need to hold people accountable for their shitty actions and being shit to people SHOULD get your career ended.

  37. i think a more appropriate title would be "cancel culture is exaggerated". I hate the idea that you saying something and people telling you they disagree and think it's shitty is somehow censorship, honestly it's the opposite it's free speech at work, doing it's job. I don't think crazy-ass false-flagging operations and mass bans are right nor do i think reaching out to someone's employer or doxing someone is right, but as we saw with James Gunn (debatably so, don't @ me) and Lyndsey Ellis, right-wing people do that to an insane extent. You know how many people's lives have gotten destroyed by hackers and 4chan mobs, not to mention literal mobs on the right like the KKK? everyone is pro-free speech until not every speech sounds the same, really it's intellectually dishonest, if someone says something shitty than genuinely apologizes and makes a significant effort to improve, I say forgive him, but if literal fascists get made fun of for you know, being fascists I don't care, that's why these platforms exist, that's an actual conversation, you don't get to be free from all criticism, what is even the point of free speech in that case? so everyone can spew nonsense and hatred freely without question and without any sort of debate? grow up man your expression shouldn't supersede others

  38. also what's weird about blazing sandals is that honestly, it's still funny today because it 's an examination of racism, it's a more meta-commentary on racism it's never really "haha black people" more "haha how we portray black people" it's subtle but important and is in a lot of mel brooks films

  39. While I agreed with your Ben Shapiro video you are way off the mark with this one

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6e98rfyFjA

    He explains better than I can.

  40. Waaait… "Some things that were said back in the day are no longer appropriate, even if they were ok at the time" but it's acceptable to dig up crap someone said 10 years ago and judge them by today's standards? You were doing pretty good until the obvious contradictions.

  41. I watched the whole thing and would have left it at that, but trying to use George Carlin, as if he would be as pro censorship as you is so fucking dishonest. Fuck you, sleazy twat.

  42. People always take Carlin out of context. He always knew where the line was.

    He shit on everything. But there was (mostly) always a logical point behind it.

    That's what comedy is missing.

    Monty Python constantly shit on the BBC because of censorship.

    Its now considered one of the best comedy shows of all time.

    Shows what they know.

  43. @some more news

    Hey, really enjoy your channel but I think your slightly out of focus on some videos. Just wanted to point it out because sometimes it can go unnoticed.

    Cheers!

  44. Can't make jokes can't say Happy Holidays because of cultural snowflakes on the left and right. At least we still have freedom of thought so long as we don't share.

  45. Cancel culture isn't a thing? Aw crap! I was vaguely and ambiguously hopeful that we could finally neutralize some of the objectively repugnant entitled powerhouses who live to be lionized. I suppose I'll just have to cling to me own little cancel-culture bubble where public recognition comes with a degree of responsibility no matter how white, male and wealthy you are.

  46. Still not sure the Kevin Hart gag was homophobic as much as it was ignorant. It doesn't seem reasonable to assume that a parent could behave that way to a child unless you knew ahead of time that worse fates had befallen gay kids.

  47. Actually cancel culture is a thing, a very dangerous thing. I understand that this video is focused on what harmful things celebrities say and that they get away with it scot-free a lot of the time. However there are examples of other celebrities, more in the way of e-celebs, who are falsely accused of a scandal and it threatens to ruin their career. The video "Cancel Culture – A Social Plague" by Upper Echelon Games does an excellent job of explaining what cancel culture is and gives detailed, well researched examples of this phenomenon. I am writing this only because I fear people will start thinking cancel culture is not real after watching this video, when it does damage people.

  48. Im offended that you called George Carlin an old dead guy.
    Ive been an old dead guy for several years now and i believe your bias against my chosen lifestyle… or, in this case deathstyle.

  49. Look you are right about most of these things, but you are really a douche and not funny though I can't tell if you were even trying to be. I don't know if this is a character or whatever, but you're a douche canoe. Louis C.K. did what he did with consent fuck off with that though.

  50. Honestly, I do think cancel culture is a problem, but it's not affecting Hollywood or older industries. It affects children (grade school/high school), but it's basically just a new word for bullying/ostracising; the problem being that cancel culture promotes the idea that the cancelled person deserves their treatment and shouldn't be offered redemption. And when I say "old industries," I don't mean the newest type of entertainment industry: YouTube entertainers and social media influencers. Some of these people really SHOULD be cancelled, but it often doesn't if they have a big enough following and enough money/influence

  51. You have to choose to get hurt by words. You now how often people have used language against me, and how often I never let it hurt my feelings? Language is harmless. Comparing to handling a chainsaw is stupid. People are stupid for giving words enough power over them.
