The Mandalorian’s Bill Burr: ‘Cancel Culture Was Weird, But It’s All Over Now’

Burr believes that cancel culture is over and no longer a problem.

Comedian and actor Bill Burr says that cancel culture is over.

Burr shared his thoughts during an interview on the Club Random podcast with Bill Maher. He explained that he no longer worries about facing backlash for his jokes as the era of cancel culture has ended:

“It’s like most things. It started off with something everyone could agree on, and then quickly it just spun out of control. Whenever that cancel culture got to the point where it was, ‘I don’t like some of the topics in your stand-up act,’ yeah, that’s when it got weird. But, that’s all over. Yeah, no one cares anymore… If it’s just like, ‘You did this joke about, you know, this group of people, or that group of people, and I’ve decided…’ I don’t know. I feel like I’m going back two years in my life. I don’t even think about it anymore.”

Burr believes cancel culture started with good intentions but got out of control when it began targeting stand-up comedy. He said it became problematic when people started criticizing specific topics in comedy acts.

They Both Agree MeToo Punishments Aren’t Fair

Burr and Maher also talked about how cancel culture affected comedians like Louis CK.

Louis CK returned to performing stand-up comedy and even made a new movie after his scandal during the MeToo era. They both agreed he faced enough punishment. Maher added that people have done worse things and received less punishment, saying there’s no logic in how MeToo-type punishments are handed out:

“Isn’t it time everyone just went, ‘Okay. It wasn’t a cool thing to do, but it’s been long enough, and welcome back to the world.’ Enough! I mean, for Christ’s sake, it’s not the end of the world. People have done so much more worse things and gotten less. There’s no rhyme or reason to the MeToo-type punishments.”

Burr also defended Gina Carano, his co-star in ‘The Mandalorian.’ Carano was fired by Disney and Lucasfilm over her social media posts. Burr publicly supported Carano, saying she shouldn’t have been removed from the show.
