Former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Jon Lovitz is speaking out about cancel culture.
The star joined the myriad of comedians talking about the current state of the genre now that comics face potential cancellation over past or present material. He even went as far as to compare it to the Red Scare, which saw many in Hollywood get blacklisted in the 1940s.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I’ll just say it, it’s no different than McCarthyism,” the 63-year-old told Page Six in a recent interview.
Lovitz told the outlet that it’s his job to “satirize what’s going on in society and point out the hypocrisies.” He noted that cancel culture makes it impossible for he or his fellow comedians to do a good job.
“As soon as you say to a comedian like me, ‘You can’t say that,’ the first thing in my head is, ‘Oh, and now I have to,'” he explained.
He said that there is a difference in “being outright mean” and just joking about sensitive subjects.
“If you don’t have the ability to laugh at yourself, don’t go to a comedy club,” Lovitz cautioned. “I’m not changing my act. If you’re watching TV and you don’t like the show, change the channel. It’s very simple.”
Lovitz tweeted Friday, “I’ve seen innocent friends lose their careers. It’s enough.”
