    I'm outraged that she's being a third-rate Dave Chappelle knockoff. Again.

    Edit: I thought it said Amy Schumer. Sorry. Fact remains this joke is a decade old, at least.

    Haters wanna hate
    Lovers wanna love
    I don't even want
    None of the above
    I want to piss on you....

    I thought the joke was funny but maybe just not sensitive to the race issues that the Twitter crowd is.

    They got mad at Bill Burr last week because he dared have a differing view on Brucelin.

    I don't think that Malcolm X was as sensitive to race issues as the Twitter crowd is.

    Publicity's a helluva drug.

    Maybe it's time for some people to stop treating it like it's such a significant and essential communications tool.

    I certainly think we are long past the point where newspapers should stop treating social media posts as somehow accurately capturing public opinion. I've been beating that drum on year for a decade.

    Are you kidding? Newspapers are no longer the gatekeeper. They'll keep chasing that social media *whatever it is* to incorporate into their game.

    Newspapers couldn't quit social media posts if they tried.

    I think anyone using tweets to substantiate a "story" should be required to directly interview said tweeter to make sure they weren't just popping off. Hell, when tweets are treated like votes on a national referendum, it's pretty said.

    I'm outraged by all the outrage out there.
