Dawn French thinks so.
“It is no more acceptable to make a fat joke than it is to make a gay joke… People need to learn to take everyone as they are.”
What comedians can joke about is an increasingly treacherous minefield. Rowan Atkinson campaigned against proposed laws targeting “incitement to religious hatred” because he feared that they would prevent jokes about religion.
What do you think–race, size, genocide, aristocrats, 9/11… are there some things we just should never joke about? Or is all fair when it comes to comedy?
Thanks Amaxfield for the link!
