Katt Williams’ Take on “Cancel Culture”



“Some of these things are for the benefit of everything. Nobody likes the speed limit, but it’s necessary. Nobody likes the shoulder of the road, but it’s there for a reason. My point is People weren’t all that extremely funny when they could say whatever they wanted to say. At the end of the day, there’s no cancel culture. Cancellation doesn’t have its own culture. People without a voice being trashed by people just because they had a bigger name than them, and more money than them, and a better office than them. I don’t know what people we think got ‘canceled’ that we wish we had back.”

"If all that’s going to happen is that we have to be more sensitive in the way that we talk, isn’t that what we want anyway? I’m saying, your job as a comedian is to please the most amount of people with your art. Don’t call somebody this word when you know it affects all of these people.”

“If you wanna offend somebody, no one took those words away from you. But don’t use the ... when you really mean ... Don’t say this word instead of saying ... Look, If these are the confines that are keeping you from doing the craft God put you to, then it probably ain’t for you.”
