Thread: Cancel culture

  1. #1

    Cancel culture

    Always liked John Cleese.
    Doubt she knew what she was letting herself in for....

    It's so obvious the right wing press is using cancel culture to wind up middle aged men and make it seem like a huge thing.

    odd video, I don't think cleese came across particularly well there, he certainly didn't "destroy" the interviewer. it was all a bit garbled.

    you often hear these older comedians lamenting about cancel this and woke that, while the younger generation of comedians just laugh at them and get on with it.
    it happens to the best of us, but these older comedians are just out of touch.

    Isn't the right-wing press largely associated with middle-aged men?

    He wanted to plug his own material and she was looking for something current to report on. Different agendas and he wasn't astute enough to manipulate the situation to his own advantage.

    Re: Cancel culture

    Very funny man is his day but he's done now

    Is it just me or is he a bit of a brexit boy ?

    I remember him destroying a load of Christians when life of Brian came out

    He didn't literally kill them or anything

    Itís like political correctness all over again, we keep hearing how prevalent it is but outside of a few genuine nutters getting shit canned or the odd mistake being blown out of proportion how much cancelling has actually happened?

    Why do people always get drawn in so much with it? I remember in the 90s hearing we couldnít call a black board a black board anymore ffs and that wasnít true was it? I hope I donít turn into a dope believing this shite when I get older.

    I went to see a Frankie Boyle work in progress recently and he made a joke about Richard Branson going to space (the only way anyone wants that **** to achieve weightlessness is from a thoroughly agressive form of cancer) if heís not being cancelled who is.

    I see a lot of stand ups and almost all of them have loads of non politically correct jokes but no one is getting cancelled.

    I think it has a lot to do with whether you are punching up or punching down.

    Too bloody right - the grammar police should throw away the key aswell for such serious offences.

    Punching up or down suggests that there is already a preconceived right or wrong

    Didn't Jim Davidson get ostracised for something or other?

    Re: Cancel culture

    Cleese did say that he was doing research into a documentary and I thought he did okay regarding the question he was asked.

    No doubt he wanted to plug his latest shows and had grown tired of further talk on the cancel culture and her bringing up the Dave Chappelle situ may have been a curve ball which he wasn't expecting.
    Sharpness and slight of tongue will have waned a little but his exit I thought he handled rather well, not unlike one of his sketches.

    "Older" comedians have been mentioned and being in that category, JC may have become a little cynical, understandably in his old age.

    Though he did do well not mention the war!

    Re: Cancel culture

    It's just good old fashioned intolerance. Whereas before it was the likes of Mary Whitehouse, now it's people who identify as liberal but are anything but.

    I agree there are consequences but t's all just gone a bit far. The recent case with Durham University and Rod Liddle is a good example, as is 'offence archaeology' when people dig up tweets from ten years ago they deem to be offensive and plaster them all over the internet to shame someone. (if you actually felt them offensive you wouldnt air them)

    My suggestion is that if you don't like gay bars, don't go in them. If you don't like swearing, don't watch TV after 9pm. If you don't like some opinions, then leave it to others who do.

    Or better still, actually expose yourself to all of the above and rid yourself of your tiresome prejudices.

    Quite a few comments on 'cancel culture' hypocrisy making the rounds - like this one about Maureen Lipman!

    Zoe Lafferty@zoe_lafferty

    She protested outside and then inside the BAC screaming that a play I directed should be canceled. A play by her own admission she had never read, hadn't seen and didn't know the content of.

    Cancel culture is a right-wing myth. They didn't seem to have a problem with it when they were burning Beatles records.
