The state of comedy …

… Comedy in the era of Twitter outrage: An interview with Ricky Gervais | Spectator USA. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Many of Ricky’s detractors take issue with the jokes he told about Caitlyn Jenner while hosting the 2016 Golden Globes, but he is adamant that he has always supported trans rights. ‘There are many trying to say the subject of the joke is the same as the target, but it’s not. The word “transphobia” has been watered down through misuse. It couldn’t have been done better by real transphobes.’
