just goes to show that inappropriate humour ie (friends and 2 and half men) still get laughs even in 2020
im not salty with Nic, i felt sorry for him (even if he could be a bit of a tool), i suspect he made it pretty clear to production that his head wasn't in the right spot to pick anyone as it progressed along but they clearly made him stay knowing full well what a ratings bonanza it would be when he picked no one. If he could have jumped ship earlier im sure he would have. The bit i didn't like is that he gave Brooke forewarning but didn't bother with his finale two, THAT was a shit move. those two girls didn't deserve that.
how quickly we forgive a man who makes a so called mistake when they are in the media spotlight yet a woman is forever held to account for her so called mistake. Monica lewisnky springs to mind.
yet another article that finishes just as it gets started.
@guest2 but in this case it isn't a singular person. So if enough people are offended doesn't that mean it should be evaluated? No one is above reproach least of all the comedian with the 'i was only joking' mentality. What is the marker of measurement before we as a society re-evaluate certain things whether it be comedy, statues, police behaviour, slavery etc where do you draw the line as that is ok but that isn't?
@snorks you are correct in that being offended doesn't necessarily make you right but offending someone is THE perfect time to reevaluate your position. Its a learning opportunity for all involved. Its how we learn as a society and grow and mature. Only the person in a position of power (in this case a white man doing black face) thinks the other person should get over it and not be offended.
@guest2 how do you know he didn't? Until Chris himself acknowledges it either way it is heresay. Regardless Filipe feels stereotyped in a negative way and THAT is the point of reevaluating Chris Lilley's work.
