Just stumbled upon this tweet from February: Neil calling out Mental Floss for lightening his skin.
Mental Floss never apologized for this, I’m grossed out
napping together is my kind of date
Shoutout to the females that compliment each other, that jealousy shit dead
EVER has a right to touch you if you don’t want to be touched.
Not your husband. Not your fiance. Not your boyfriend. Not your partner. Not your friends. Not even your own family.
You are a person and your body is your own. And it’s a privilege if you allow someone to touch it.
A god damn privilege that can be snatched up and you don’t owe anyone a reason but that it’s your body and only YOUR body.
Colbert’s TV persona is a cartoonishly ignorant right-wing zealot, whom the comedian himself has called “an idiot.” Plenty of his jokes might be deemed offensive, but all told they usually serve the higher purpose of exposing the absurdity of contemporary politics.
This time, however, some say he’s crossed a line. This is not a new phenomenon in the world of comedy, where such criticism comes with the territory. But it also reminds people that good will towards edgy humor lasts only as long as the audience is laughing. When the room goes silent, it’s wise to cut your losses – just ask Kramer.
