As an example of hate speech. I detest the word. I hate it even more when others use it. Well it is a figure of speech, as you well know. Regardless of what led up to his comment, the comment itself was not acceptable. Joking about his heckler being gang raped, after she told him his rape jokes were not funny, is not appropriate. In fact, it is pretty shit, for lack of a better term. And people spoke out against it. Now, consider, do you think it was cancel culture? Here we have someone who was told it wasn't appropriate. And he responded by discussing he being gang raped. His show was cancelled, but he went elsewhere. Were people correct in speaking out and "cancelling"?
