Seth Rogen is attacking different comedians for whining about “cancel culture” moderately than proudly owning as much as their “horrific” or “terrible” jokes.
The “Superbad” star informed “Good Morning Britain” Tuesday that some off-color jokes in his motion pictures “have not aged well” — whereas insisting that he “never made a joke that is outwardly horrific in some way.”
“And if you have, I would question why you did that,” he mentioned of different comedians, in accordance with a clip shared by the Impartial.
“Saying terrible things is bad. If you’ve said something terrible, that’s something you should confront in some way, shape or form.
“I don’t think that’s ‘cancel culture’ — that’s you saying something terrible,” he insisted.
“To me, when I see comedians complaining about this kind of thing, I don’t understand what they’re complaining about,” he mentioned.
“Getting criticism is one of the things that goes along with being an artist, and if you don’t like that, then don’t be a comedian anymore.”
The 39-year-old filmmaker mentioned he was more than pleased to simply accept criticism of jokes in his personal motion pictures.
“I was never a comedian, I don’t think, that made jokes that were truly designed to target groups that were subjugated in some way,” he informed the UK breakfast present.
“Have we done that without realizing it? Definitely. Those things are in our movies and they’re out there, and I’m more than happy to say that they have not aged well,” he mentioned.
“But I think that’s the nature of comedy … Jokes are not things that necessarily are built to last,” he mentioned.
Rogen didn’t identify any fellow comedians, however there was a latest rise in complaints about cancel tradition.
Final week, Chris Rock blamed cancel tradition for making “safe” and “unfunny” leisure — insisting it was “disrespecting” audiences, who wield the “ultimate cancel” of not laughing at a comic’s jokes.
