and he's out of there

kareem abdul-jabbar wrote a good article about it https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/kareem-abdul-jabbar-shane-gillis-snl-art-post-racist-rant-apology-1240924

I read somewhere that SNL hired him to appease the Wackycats of the world.

That's terrible strategy.  The Wackycats are watching every week to find things to be offended by.

Such a weird thing to say for a paper. Your most important goal is making people feel safe? What on earth?

Man, that can't be real. All three people in that thread are insanely cartoonish.

I like Mr. Levy's earnest conviction to help all women who just want to snuggle. Also, did he do a poor MS paint job on the background of his profile pic because that dude commented on the wallpaper?

I read it and tbh I wouldn't have immediately thought of it as supporting transphobia, then I saw JK signed.

I guess if you insert "about trans people" into every sentence it does take a bit of a transphobic lean.  FWIW, this thread is the first time i've heard about this letter.

Seems wrong to me that a person’s endorsement of a viewpoint should be criticized based solely on the identity of others who support it.

People can have differing motives for supporting an idea. Yes, obviously bigots are fans of free speech. If you have to distance yourself from the First Amendment based on that then we’re mumped.

Yeah, letter seems good to me. Hadn’t heard of of it, and have only read the clip posted with the trans inserts, but yeah, I agree.

My only issue with the letter is that #cancelling someone is a form of speech.  That's how it's supposed to work.  Person A says something, society analyzes it and reacts accordingly -- whether neutrally, in support, or in opposition.  I really don't have any problem with people calling out or canceling or whatever.  That's part of Speech too, baby. 

Seen in the best light, the letter is a call for more nuanced thought and consideration of how we oppose ideas we disagree with.  Which I think is a great and smart thing to consider, but keeping in mind that sometimes, reprehensible ideas don't deserve much nuance or thought or discussion.

none of the people who signed are at risk of being cancelled. They just don't want criticism from regular people.
