Actress Kat Williams doesn’t think the cancellation culture is that bad – if it even exists.
In a June 4 interview with The Joe Budden Podcast, the Emmy-winning stand-up comic was asked: “Where do you stand on the ability of comics to be non-judgmental comics and the repercussions of this? ‘culture cancellation? “
“Some of these things are for the good of everything,” Williams replied. “No one likes the speed limit, but it is necessary. No one likes the shoulder of the road, but it’s there for a reason. My point is, [people] weren’t that funny back when they could say whatever they wanted.
He continued, “At the end of the day, there is no culture of cancellation. Cancellation does not have its own culture.
Williams crafted the cancellation excluded people who weren’t initially memorable and it’s not part of a comic book’s job description to disrupt large swathes of your audience.
“I don’t know which people were canceled that we would like to recover. Who are they? It’s done for the reasons it’s done and it helped who it helped, ”said Williams. “If all that has to happen is we have to be more sensitive in the way we speak, isn’t that what we want anyway?” I say that your job as an actor is to please the greatest number with your art. Don’t call someone by that word when you know it affects all of them.
Williams went on to explain that a comedian’s job isn’t for the weak, and stand-ups should seek a different career path if they can’t adjust to modern attitudes.
“If it’s the limitations that keep you from doing the job God has put you in, then it’s probably not for you,” Williams concluded.
