Taika Waititi, Jameela Jamil Comment on Todd Phillips' Claims that "Woke Culture" Has Ruined Comedy

Earlier this week, Joker/The Hangover/Old School director Todd Phillips had some choice comments about how hard he has it in trying to make comedies in a day and age where more people will call out racism, sexism, and other of his comedy mainstays: “Go try to be funny nowadays with this woke culture. There were articles written about why comedies don’t work anymore—I’ll tell you why, because all the fucking funny guys are like, ‘Fuck this shit, because I don’t want to offend you.’ It’s hard to argue with 30 million people on Twitter."

Shockingly, some of those who have been able to continue to make comedy despite these hardships disagree!
