This is just sad. Comedian, actor, and “Family Feud” host Steve Harvey admitted the real reason why he has given up on doing comedy tours. Harvey claims his brand of comedy would have him canceled by the end of his first show.
“Harvey, touring to promote his new daytime courtroom show “Judge Steve Harvey,” addressed a question as to whether he’d ever do a stand-up comedy special in the near future. Harvey denied that he had any intention of doing so because he thinks he’d get canceled over it, and mentioned that if he ever did one, it would have to be at the end of his career so it wouldn’t matter if he got canceled.
“The only way I can do one more special is if it’s at the end of my television career because it will end my television career,” Harvey said. “We’re in the cancel culture now.”
“To bolster his claim, Harvey mentioned some big name comedians who have gotten canceled for irreverent jokes.
“No stand-up that is sponsor-driven can say anything he wants to,” the “Original Kings of Comedy” star said. “Chris Rock can’t. Kevin Hart can’t. Cedric the Entertainer can’t. D.L. Hughley can’t. I can go down the list.”
“The only person that can say what they want to say on stage is Dave Chappelle because he’s not sponsor-driven,” Harvey continued. “He’s subscription-driven.”
We need to put a stop to these Liberal Karens ruining everything for us. They have canceled numerous comedians and are forcing many to never step foot on stage again over the fear of being canceled. Just look at what happened to Dave Chappelle. Netflix employees walked out and there were numerous demands that his special be taken down or they would quit. Netflix prevailed and showed them where the door was. But usually, it’s the other way around. And we need to start ignoring these hateful canceling Libs.
