  1. I'm so fed up with the cancel culture nonsense. He told a Joke back in the 90's about the Holocaust. Israel is committing Apartheid today, too bad the people who got so upset over a joke dont have the same energy for outrage over Palestinians being forced to live in an open air Prison.

  2. You are not allowed to speak your mind. Not in person, not on social media, or in the workplace. You must pretend to naturally have a politically correct disposition and only use language that 'the establishment approves of… which is constantly changing.

  3. Fired for something that the guy said 23 years ago? That’s a little over the top. We all make mistakes in life. If you choose to admit it or not most people have said something of poor taste at some point in life. He admitted it was wrong to say. Move on.

  4. It's obviously not okay to joke about something as terrible as the holocaust. But it was literally over 20 years ago! It's pretty unreasonable to fire him a day before the event. This is cancel culture overdone, we can't possibly be this sensitive.
