The Outrage Mob has put quite a lot of time and energy into trying to cancel comedians.

And comedian Seth Rogen thinks they kind of have a point, actually:


The question prompted Rogen to discuss the relationship between cancel culture and comedy, as many comedians have been forced to reckon with dated jokes that are no longer appropriate in the present day. Rogen said, “To me when I see comedians complaining about this kind of thing, I don’t understand what they’re complaining about. If you’ve made a joke that’s aged terribly, accept it. And if you don’t think it’s aged terribly, then say that.”

When asked by “Good Morning Britain” hosts if he would have to search through his Twitter feed to delete controversial jokes made in the past, Rogen responded, “I was never a comedian that made jokes that were truly designed to target groups that were subjugated in some way. Have we done that without realizing it? Definitely. And those things are in our movies and they’re out there, and they’re things that I am more than happy to say that they have not aged well.”
