And nowâ€¦ Mr. Bean.
(Itâ€™s been a slow news cycle, folks. But just wait. I can make this into something.)
Rowan Atkinson has had his say on cancel culture and the effect it can have on comedy, believing you should be allowed to make jokes about â€˜absolutely anythingâ€™.
Many comedians over recent years have come under fire for their material being too near the knuckle, but Rowan doesnâ€™t believe anything should be off-limits to be politically correct.
Rowan has previously rallied against cancel culture and even campaigned for a modification to the UKâ€™s Religious Hatred Bill in the mid-naughties to allow performers are leeway to criticise religion within their act, as well as to have the notion of â€˜insultâ€™ removed from the UKâ€™s Public Order Bill.
He told the Irish Times: â€˜It does seem to me that the job of comedy is to offend, or have the potential to offend, and it cannot be drained of that potential.
â€˜Every joke has a victim. Thatâ€™s the definition of a joke. Someone or something or an idea is made to look ridiculous.â€™
The Mr Bean star also hit back at the suggestion that comedy should exclusively punch up at those in power and never down at those who are more defenceless.
He explained: â€˜I think youâ€™ve got to be very, very careful about saying what youâ€™re allowed to make jokes about.
