Marc Maron on ‘Joker’: Don’t Blame Movies For Criminal Actions of the Mentally Ill



Maron has a cameo in the controversial film, as the assistant producer for Robert De Niro’s character.

Maron criticized the obsessive media attention devoted to “Joker.
He is the latest person to weigh in on the mass hysteria surrounding “Joker” :
• The focus should be on health care, mental-health treatment on a national level.
• Media attention might be put to better use addressing issues such as gun control.
• We should not blame movies for the criminal actions of the mentally ill.

Maron expressed disagreement with Phillips’ remarks about how “woke culture” killed comedy.
"If you’re too intimidated to try and do comedy that is deep and provocative or even a little controversial without hurting people, then you’re not good at what you do.
