Seth Rogen dismissed the risks posed to comedians by “cancel culture” in today’s society during an interview with “Good Morning Britain” this week, saying he thinks comics should own up to making remarks that don’t age well.
In an interview with the breakfast program to promote his new collection of essays “Yearbook,” Rogen was asked about moments from his own past films that have received new looks or even criticism in recent years.
“There are certain jokes that for sure have not aged well, but I think that’s the nature of comedy,” he said. “I think conceptually those movies are sound, and I think there’s a reason they’ve lasted as far as people still watching and enjoying them today. Jokes are not things that necessarily are built to last.”
