Famed comedian D.L. Hughley just weighed in on the firestorm of controversy surrounding fellow comedian Kathy Griffin’s poorly conceived if too-convincingly executed mock beheading of President Donald Trump, which, if you don’t recall, looked like this:
In an interview with TMZ, Hughley rightfully compared the artistic stunt to a rant carried on by former 70s rockstar turned crackpot racist ammophiliac Ted Nugent.
Decked out in full-on camouflage hunting gear, Nugent wielded two machine guns while raging, “Obama, he’s a piece of sh*t. I told him to suck on my machine gun. Hey Hillary,” he continued. “You might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless b*tch.” Nugent summed up his eloquent speech by screaming “freedom!”
This little outburst didn’t stop President Trump from inviting Ted Nugent to the White House, where he ate dinner with the President. The double standard is staggering as Trump’s little ragtag band of deplorables, the so-called Kekistani crusaders of “free speech,” suddenly turn their tails and called for Griffin’s head for daring to mock their false emperor.
“If you got mad a Kathy Griffin and didn’t say sh*t about Ted Nugent, you’re a hypocrite…It’s just ridiculous man, the things we choose to be offended by. A man who grabs women’s p*ssies is not in a condition to be offended by anything” said Hughley.
He went on to detail how it was important for comedians to stick by their jokes and to not be intimidated by pressure from outside or taboos that might restrict them.
