Comedian Kat Williams doesn’t think canceling culture is that bad, if it exists at all.
In a June 4 interview on The Joe Budden Podcast, the Emmy award-winning comedian was asked, “What is your position on the ability of comics to be non-judgmental comics and repercussions of cancellation culture? ? “
“Some of these things are for the benefit of the whole,” Williams responded. “Nobody likes the speed limit, but it is necessary. Nobody likes the shoulder of the road, but it’s there for a reason. My point is [people] They weren’t so funny when they could say what they wanted. “
He continued: “At the end of the day, there is no culture of cancellation. Cancellation does not have its own culture. “
Williams’ elaborate cancellation has excluded people who were not memorable to begin with and who is not part of a comic book job description to annoy large swaths of its audience.
“I don’t know which people canceled that we wish we had back. Who are they? It was done for the reasons it was done and it helped whoever it helped, ”Williams said. “If all that’s going to happen is that we have to be more sensitive in the way we speak, isn’t that what we want anyway? I mean, your job as a comedian is to please as many people as possible with your art. Don’t call someone with this word when you know it affects all these people. “
Williams then explained that comic book work is not for the weak and that stand-ups should pursue a different career if they cannot adapt to modern attitudes.
“If these are the limits that prevent you from doing the job God has set for you, then it’s probably not for you,” Williams concluded.
