Bill Maher is so sick and tired of people being ‘woke’ and branded “cancel culture” at the Tokyo Olympics as ‘insanity.’
The comedian and talk show host slammed the Games in his closing monologue on the latest episode of HBO’s Real Time. The TV host criticized the ongoing Tokyo Summer Olympics for punishing officials for minor transgressions from decades ago.
“Please don’t make the Olympics into the Oscars,” Maher said. “Oh, what’s that? They did already?”
“You know back in April when the Oscars aired, I commented in this space that the theme of that evening was ‘we dare you to be entertained.’ Lest your mind waiver for a few hours from thinking about the sad things and bad people in the world,” Maher said.
“Well, thank God we found some of those bad people now in the Olympics and not a moment too soon,” he continued.
He went on to list officials being penalized for decades-old mistakes, including a ceremony director being removed for making a Holocaust joke in 1998, a composer stepping down because of childhood bullying allegations, and another official being removed because of a fat joke made during a private conversation.
“Young people have to stop flattering themselves that they’re Nostradamus and would have foreseen had they been around then everything that’s unacceptable now,” he said.
“Why do we allow the people who just want to bitch to always win?”
