Conan O’Brien Pusses Out on Muslim Joke

November 13, 2013 | celebrity | Lex Jurgen | 0 Comments

Apologizing for offensive jokes is like taking a dump in the humor sacrament. Everybody is offended by something. That can’t possibly be a standard. Conan O’Brien pulled a Tweet about the new Marvel comics superhero, Ms. Marvel, following cries of racism and disparagement of Muslims. Oh, boo fucking hoo. No, it’s not a particularly funny joke, if for no other reason than Conan’s Twitter writer didn’t know that the Ms. Marvel character is a high school girl in the new storyline. But it’s just a joke. Obama might feel a need to never use the word Muslim within ten Ramadans of the word terrorism, but comedians are supposed to be beyond the political art of cowardice. Offended people will always find a way to be offended. You know what’s truly disparaging of Muslims? Assuming they can’t take a fucking joke.
