There is racism and then there is making fun of racists by satirizing them, but today’s leftist protesters can’t seem to tell the difference and despite the bizarre amounts of stupidity it would take not to see the difference, it’s harmful to try to stop the comedic lambasting.
As the Daily Wire has reported, the show “30 Rock” has pulled some episodes where blackface is featured. The general purpose of these bits was to mock anyone who would do blackface and put forth the idea that doing so was a stupid thing to do. It culminated in an apology from executive producer Tina Fey:
With the PC police swirling, lead actress Fey offered an apology.
“As we strive to do the work and do better in regards to race in America, we believe that these episodes featuring actors in race-changing makeup are best taken out of circulation,” Fey wrote in a letter to the platforms that streamed or sold 30 Rock. “I understand now that ‘intent’ is not a free pass for white people to use these images. I apologize for pain they have caused. Going forward, no comedy-loving kid needs to stumble on these tropes and be stung by their ugliness. I thank NBCUniversal for honoring this request.”
