Bill Burr is a stand up comedian known for “pushing the envelope”. In life, society feels uncomfortable talking about certain topics due to the lack of comfortability. Bill’s comedy attempts to address the elephant in the room and allow people to self reflect on their behaviors. If you’re a person who’s willing to self reflect on your own personal problems, then you will fine Burr’s comedy to be “truthful” and “a breath of fresh air”. But, if you’re one of the people who aren’t willing to take constructive criticism, even in the form of comedy, then you’re gonna see him as “offensive” and demand he be stopped. White women ended up on the offended angle, demanding he be stopped.
Bill Burr, in his latest SNL monologue, doesn’t hold back on his criticism of white women. He calls them out for hijacking justice movements and making themselves the center of attention. White women has spent the last 5 decades wagging their fingers at white men about their privilege and their roles in racism. But, they curiously never call themselves out. They’ve been hiding behind feminism as a reason to ignore their privileges and their roles in racism. Trying to portray themselves as just as oppressed as people of color.
“Somehow, white women swung their Gucci-booted feet over the fence of oppression and stuck themselves at the front of the line.” Burr says.
White women, got angry and ranted all over Twitter. They got upset that Burr claimed that they make the entire discussion of justice about them. So how did they respond? By making the entire skit about justice about their feelings. Thus proving Burr’s point.
Luckily, common sense exists. Rational thinking people mocked these white women for not seeing the irony of their tweets and outrage.
Let’s all give a big hand to Bill Burr for managing to speak the truth and piss off all of the right people.
