May 8, 2021 – While promoting his latest film, Here Today, comedian and actor Billy Crystal took the opportunity to bemoan cancel culture and the current state of comedy. In an interview with the New York Post, Crystal said:
“It’s becoming a minefield and I get it. I don’t like it, I understand it … I just keep doing what I’m doing and that’s all you can do right now.”
“It’s a totally different world [now] and it doesn’t mean you have to like it,” he added, with a laugh.
But not everyone was laughing:
comedy is not "becoming a minefield." people just won't accept racist shit and punching down anymore.
