One of the most popular comedians in the country, Tina Fey, has said she’s done with apologizing for so-called “offensive” jokes.
Comedians have recently been under attack by a crazed PC army on the Left—who have forced comedians to backtrack off-color jokes that are “offensive” to someone.
It’s gotten so bad that some comedians, like Chris Rock or Jerry Seinfeld, have said they no longer perform on college campuses—because, quite simply, college students can no longer take a joke; they’re too concerned with possibly offended someone.
Tina Fey, however, has decided that she wouldn’t bother apologizing anymore, and urged other comedians to do the same: “Steer clear of the Internet and you’ll live forever,” she said.
Fey has explained what put her over the edge:
“We did an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt episode and the internet was in a whirlwind, calling it ‘racist,’ but my new goal is not to explain jokes. I feel like we put so much effort into writing and crafting everything, they need to speak for themselves.”
“There’s a real culture of demanding apologies, and I’m opting out of that.”
Fey, who was the mastermind behind the hit show 30 Rock and the producer and writer of the cult 2004 film Mean Girls, has long been a feminist icon due to her ability to break into the boys club of comedy—but when ever reliably liberal celebrities start to realize the politically correct culture has gone off the deep end, perhaps it’s time to change course.
