John Cleese Is Fighting Back Against Cancel Culture With His New Show!


Before you read this article, I want you to bring me one shrubbery!

Legendary comedic actor John Cleese will star in a documentary series titled “Cancel Me” that aims to fight back against authoritarian cancel culture.

The woke mob is going to have a hard time dealing with Cleese’s satirical criticism, and what I hope will be a savage takedown of McCarthyism 2.0.

Cancel me will appear on The UK’s channel 4, but viewers stateside will probably be able to find it on the internet sometime in the near future.

The Guardian writes:

John Cleese: Cancel Me will see the British comedian and actor meet various subjects who claim to have been “cancelled” for their actions or statements, and activists who have led opposition to various public figures.

In a statement, Cleese said: “I’m delighted to have a chance to find out, on camera, about all the aspects of so-called political correctness. There’s so much I really don’t understand, like: how the impeccable idea of ‘Let’s all be kind to people’ has been developed in some cases ad absurdum.”

“I want to bring the various reasonings right out in the open so that people can be clearer in their minds what they agree with, what they don’t agree with, and what they still can’t make their mind up about.”

The Post Millennial adds:

The British comedian is no stranger to cancel culture having come under scrutiny himself. In June 2020, Cleese reacted negatively to UKTV’s decision to remove an episode of his show, Fawlty Towers, that contained “racial slurs.” The episode in mind has an older character who uses “racist language” in an anecdote about a West Indies Cricket Team.

At the time, Cleese said, “If you put nonsense words into the mouth of someone you want to make fun of, you’re not broadcasting their views. You’re making fun of them. The major was an old fossil leftover from decades before. We were not supporting his views. We were making fun of them. If they can’t see that – if people are too stupid to see that – what can one say?”
