Bill Burr is one of those unapologetic comedians who does not give a damn what comes out of his mouth when he speaks on a topic.
Bill Burr: Live at Red Rocks dropped on Netflix and he absolutely killed it.
For sports fans, he touched on the revenue disparities between men’s and women’s sports, particularly when it comes to soccer and the WNBA. For Bill, the answer was real simple: This is all women’s fault.
“Look at the WNBA: they have been playing in front of 300 to 400 people a night for a quarter of a century. Not to mention, it’s a male-subsidized league. We gave you a league and none of you showed up. Where are all the feminists? That place should be packed with feminists — faces painted, wearing jerseys, going f—ing nuts like the guys do!” Burr said.
“None of you went to the f—ing games. You failed them. Not me. Not men — women failed the WNBA. Ladies, name your Top 5 WNBA players of all time. Name 5 WNBA teams. Name the WNBA team in your city. You can’t do it!”
“You don’t give a f*ck about them.”
“You don’t sell any f-cking tickets. Nobody is going to women’s soccer games. You’re playing in a 20,000-seat arena, 1,500 people show up. That’s not a good night! The promoter lost his f-cking ass on that gig.”
“Nobody’s watching your f-cking sport and then you’re gonna come an get mad at f-cking men. They keep doing that sh*t. Why are you yelling at us? It’s not my f-cking job to give a f-ck about women’s soccer…”
Burr even brought the Kardashians into the equation, basically saying that they’re making billions of dollars by doing absolutely nothing:
Meanwhile, you look at the Kardashians… they’re making billions. You look at those Real Housewives shows, they’re making money hand over fist. Because that’s what women are watching and the money listens. You don’t wanna watch this sh-t? They shoot it over there… drowning these whores in money, purses and shoes, and botox, it’s just raining money.
So, the money listens. You’d rather watch that sh*t, Real Housewives, just a bunch of women tearing each other down. That’s the message you send… we’d rather watch that than a bunch of women come together as a team and try to achieve a common goal.
We’d rather watch them absolutely f*cking destroy each other. And then in the end, you come back… and you yell at f-cking guys.”
