What's the deal with sensitive people? They demand sensitivity, but are sensitive if I call them sensitive!
Jerry Seinfeld weighed in on the fraught nature of outrage culture on college campuses, and how this is causing many comics to steer clear of the once-prized (and often lucrative) university circuit. Time was, college students would pay top dollar to see offensive stand-up acts come and provoke them, because there was no Internet and college campuses are often in relatively small towns. Now, according to Jerry Seinfeld, many comedians are reluctant to give a few thousand Twitter-savvy audience members the opportunity to seize on a bad or legitimately offensive joke and ruin their careers.
How dare Jerry Seinfeld attack the best and least annoying people on earth, college kids.
