What if some people find it funny and other people find it highly offensive? That is the problem with it all, who defines what is funny? The individual does, however, now we have people who say other people aren’t allowed to enjoy it because they themselves don’t like it.
Jim Jeffries only became mainstream when he started bashing Trump. People even forgive the fact that he once admitted to drugging and raping a 17 year old girl. That is a fact, he has taken down many videos on youtube of him saying it.
You can literally say anything, however the consequences differ on your politics, who the joke is about, etc.
Bill Maher jokingly said to a black guest on his show “I’m a house ■■■■■■” and got a slap on the wrist, Roseanne Barr said a black politician looked like an ape on her twitter, and an entire show gets shutdown with hundreds of people losing their jobs. (Neither of them should have been fired)
It’s far more complex than just if a joke is funny or not.
