Katt Williams makes his two cents available for the so-called "demolition culture".
In the latest episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, the famous comedian was asked about the heightened sensitivity in comedy and its impact on businesses. He responded by comparing limits in comedy to physical limits in basketball on the court and speed limits when driving a car.
"Nobody likes out-of-bounds, but out-of-bounds have to be there or you run into the stands," said Williams. “Some of these things are for the benefit of all. Nobody likes the speed limit, but it is necessary. Nobody likes the hard shoulder, but it's there for a reason. My point is, people weren't that funny when they could say what they wanted to say. "

Continuing his point of view, Williams said that "demolition culture" does not exist and that an heightened sensitivity of "people without a voice to be destroyed" has been driven by others as if they "don't care."
“Cancellation doesn't have a culture of its own,” he said. “They were People of Color. That was, we were monitoring our own culture. These were voiceless people who were ravaged by people just because they had a bigger name than them and more money than them and a better office than them, they could sweep them under the rug as if they didn't matter. I don't know which people we think have been canceled that we wish we had back. "
Additionally, Williams shared that being a comedian means entertaining everyone and that your words can upset it.
"If all that's going to happen is that we have to be more sensitive in the way we talk, don't we want to be anyway? I say your job as a comedian is to please most people with your art, ”said Williams. “If you want to offend someone, nobody has taken these words from you. ‘Dirty B *** h’ was not taken away, you could say that. But don't tell anyone this word when you know that it affects all of these people. "
