There is enough going on in the world
There is enough going on in the world without trying to make news stories that arnt there. Today Ricky Gervais has had a barrage of abuse from the media for saying a word which in the past has been linked to someone with a disability. People that know him, will know that there was no malice in what was said, but this does open the flood gates to question what is morally right to say for comic effect. In my opinion race, disability, creed and religion are all fair game in comedy as long as its coming from the right place. As soon as its said with hatred, then that is not right........regardless of who said it and where it came from. On the other hand, if we want freedom of speech there are things we will hear that we will not like.
