The other night on the VMA’s that hilarious fat woman from Bridesmaids (not her, the other fat woman who was roommates with the main character), got up and did a big no-no – she told a joke:
Not many people seemed to find Rebel Wilson‘s police strippers bit all that amusing during Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards. One of the leaders of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, DeRay Mckesson, was chief among those detractors. “A lot of people have problem with the police, but I really hate police strippers,” Wilson said while wearing a “Fuck Tha Stripper Police” t-shirt. “You guys know what I’m talking about. They come to your house, you think you’re getting arrested, and you just get a lap dance that is usually uninspired!” She continued her bit: “I hired police stripper for my grandma’s 80th, and he wouldn’t even feel her up … I hate this injustice, hence the shirt.”
The attempted gag was a play on the title and chorus words from N.W.A.’s song “Fuck Tha Police,” which has seen a resurgence in popularity as of late thanks to hit biopic “Straight Outta Compton.” Unfortunately, according to Mckesson and others, the setup hit way too close to the reality of home. Mckesson reminded Wilson that “police violence isn’t a joke,” and asked “When’s the last time you heard a Holocaust, Sandy Hook or Columbine joke at an awards show?” He answered his own question: “Exactly.”
Shut up DeRay. We all remember how your dumb ass reacted to the news that a black man named Vester Flanagan shot and killed a reporter and cameraman on live television:
Of course now we know that Vester Flanagan was in fact not a white man, thus making it hard to explain his terrorism on “whiteness.” Oops!!
This is the biggest reason I can’t stand the hippies – they’re not fun people to hang around. I would imagine a night out at the bar with the PC crowd would involve some drinks, followed by non-stop apologizing for drunken microgressions. I mean, how much do hate waking up in the morning if your goal for the day is to find something harmless and figure out a way to take offense to it?
Now I missed the whole show, because if I wanted to watch terrible people spend three hours together I’d go to a Yankees-Mets game. Apparently Kanye West got up there and said he was gonna run for President. That in and of itself is a million times more offensive than any shirt you could ever wear.
Look, I’m offended by what this idiot says, because he thinks he can dictate comedy. To me that’s the number one biggest asshole move you can pull. You don’t get to tell other people what can and cannot be joked about. If the joke makes sense, and you can deliver it in the right way, then it’s funny and it should be told.
Secondly, it’s not a joke that’s making fun of black people or people who have been killed in interactions with the police. It’s a joke that’s making fun of a pretty dumbass slogan that only dumbass people subscribe to – “fuck the police.”
But this proves without a shadow of a doubt that DeRay Mckesson and his fantastic friends officially subscribe to the “fuck the police” motto. Why else would they be offended that someone is mocking it? Was “fuck the police” the preferred chant of Mike Brown and Eric Garner? I thought they were gentle giants that were killed by overzealous police officers? By getting upset about this slogan, Ray-Ray and company are automatically assuming that “fuck the police” is something that all of the patron saints of police brutality subscribed to before they died.
Lastly, even if we conceded that she was somehow mocking the incidents involving Mike Brown and Freddie Gray, how dumb is Ray-Ray for trying to compare that to the Holocaust or Sandy Hook? You know what all the victims of those horrifying incidents have in common? None of them were trying to take a gun from a police officer. All of them were 100% innocent.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – if you don’t wanna become the next DeRay Mckesson hashtag, then try obeying the law, not resisting arrest, not running from the police, and cooperating with law enforcement when they ask you question. Scientific studies have shown
that this is a very effective way not to get shot by a cop.
