James Gunn's past tweets (from 7+ years ago) include rape and paedophilic jokes [Image heavy]
What? The source of this episode is the right-wing primarily lead or fronted by Mike Cernovich. How is Mike Cernovich even liberal in the slightest?
Also, in terms of comedians, George Carlin was funny as fuck. James Gunn's Twitter jokes aren't really all that funny. I don't think social media/text is a good way to tell jokes though, as it removes emotion/acting/tone. That's me personally. I don't really know what Gunn's actual standup was like, I haven't really seen anything.
If you want an offensive rape joke delivered by a comedian in recent times that is known to be a decent bloke, Jim Jefferies
And Jefferies also has a good breakdown of why comedy transcripts, aka text, don't work very well for his shows. Because they are often offensive and sound terrible if read as plain text.
The issue here isn't just feigned outrage from the right because Trump was spoken about, it's the lengths involved to push paedophile conspiracies and seemingly think it's a good use to waste FBI time.
Like, feel free to call out Jefferies and explain why you don't approve of his comedy, but deciding to try and frame him as a rape apologist/rapist is that extra step like what is going on here to try and say Gunn must be a paedo.
You don't think a family company would feel compelled to fire him after that was dug out? It's fucked up that people dig around people's past because they don't like them, but that's the world we live in.
