I been thinking a bit about this lately so not surprised this popped up on my feed.  I'm interested to hear your thoughts or ummm feelings?   Click the link just below for the John Cleese section.

I think there is a hell of a lot of things to be offended about, but the things I hear people decide to speak up about are invariably trivial and personal.

To clarify, I support the comedians being offended by the offense to their offensiveness.    If we have to cede comedy to the humorless, we are in real trouble.

Comedians are increasingly becoming a last bastion of free speech. Bless these guys for being able to articulate.

As for the sensitivity topic, total selfishness on the part of the human species. We'd be better off being more concerned about depleted rain forest, dying coral, loss of polar bear habitat or, sadly, a million other issues.  Yes I'm a tree hugger....

Never read youtube comments. If you do, you will write off most of humanity.

The guys in that video sound like cry babies, especially Seinfeld, who sounded like a cry baby even back when he had a career.  I agree with Pono Bill.  This is all trivial pursuit.  No one else cares about all these BS terms like 'cancel culture', except insecure comedians.   These terms and slogans are something Trumpists dream up to justify their lack of imaginations.  Sure there are morons in the country.  So what.  We don't even need to talk about them.
