Josh Taylor has come out publicly to condemn cancel culture following the recent controversy surrounding comedian Jimmy Carr. Carr made controversial comments about gypsies in her Netflix special. What was supposed to be a joke turned into a huge issue with many people calling off Carr about it and asking to pull her special from Netflix.
Carr is known for being an edgy comedian, and his jokes have drawn similar reactions in the past, but none as serious as this one. In response to the backlash, “The Tartan Tornado” tweeted the following:
“If you don’t like someone’s humor and you choose to take it out of context, don’t listen and don’t watch. It really is that simple. You don’t have to censor people just because some people don’t like it. cancel culture kills everything”
Take a look at the tweet:
Taylor didn’t agree with his comments or defend the comedian. He simply said that comedy should never be taken seriously and people get offended too easily on the internet these days. Taylor himself received a lot of backlash for his Tweet. Fans tweeted to ask why Taylor was supporting Carr after what he said. Taylor responded by saying it should be treated as a joke and if you don’t like it, don’t listen to it.
