People Can't Take a Joke

People Can't Take a Joke

The moronic cancel culture continues. This time with Jimmy Carr and his Holocaust joke:

"People never mention the thousands of Gypsies that were killed by the Nazis’ in the Holocaust, because no one ever wants to talk about the positives"

It was a joke! I'm confident he doesn't believe such sentiments in real life but when performing it is a joke. Billy Connolly ad Ricky Gervais have been telling similar jokes and testing the extremes of comedy for years.

Jimmy Carr looks downcast as he’s pictured for first time amid Holocaust joke backlash as petition gathers steam. The Metro, 9th of February 2022.

Personally, I find his standup can be crude - well too crude and smutty for my taste. But do I go on a mission to have him cancelled? No, I either turn off or don't go and watch him perform. Some people will like his sense of humour and it is not for me to attempt to remove that.

My advice to those offended by his Holocaust joke: turn off the TV or on to another channel or don't go and watch him live. But don't try and cancel and humiliate the man for telling a joke.
