Saturday Night Live, Cancel Culture, and an Assassination Joke
October 5th, 2019 1:30 PM
Cancel Culture types pack an emotional point when they call people out for telling the “wrong” jokes. Marginalized groups shouldn’t be the butt of gags.

September 13th, 2019 1:33 PM
For a group of entertainment producers who kill to come off as condescendingly woke, ‘SNL’ showrunners look super inept for hiring an apparent racist as one of their new cast members.
