Comedian Kat Williams has brought a culture of cancellation into the ring. And he didn’t think it would be that bad.
In an episode of the Joe Budden Podcast that premiered June 4, Williams talked about his new film, “The House Next Door: Meet the Blacks 2,” and the conversation became an Internet comedy in no time. slow
“How do you stand for a cartoon’s ability to be a cartoon without the judgment and impact of cancellation culture?” asked Budden, who replied with several fitting comparisons.
“Some of these things are for the benefit of all things. Nobody likes a speed limit, but it’s necessary. Nobody likes a shoulder. But it makes sense,” Williams said. “My point is [people] It̵7;s not funny when they can say what they want to say. After all no cancellation culture Abolition has no culture of its own.”
Williams continued to elaborate on his point. by arguing that changing a person’s language Being more sensitive won’t hurt the comedian career.
“I don’t know if someone canceled what we wanted them back. Who are they? It does it for a reason and it helps anyone,” Williams said. “If what happens is we have to be more sensitive in the way we speak. That’s what we need, isn’t it? i’m saying Your job as a comedian is to please a lot of people with your art. No one took those words from you… But don’t call anyone that word when you know it affects all these people.”
He then concluded that if comics were uncomfortable with the cancellation culture, They may want to reconsider their career path.
“If these are the boundaries that prevent you from doing the handicrafts that the gods have made. It might not be for you,” Williams said. “Growing up is part of being an adult.”
Hollywood was quick to use Twitter to praise Williams for his remarks. Some even pointed to the irony of Williams said on Budden’s podcast, who found himself at the center of the controversy recently following the sacking of co-hosts Rory Farrell and Jamil “Mal. Clay and the sexual harassment allegations against Budden from fellow podcaster Olivia Dope, for which he has now apologized. See the Twitter reaction below.
