How seriously do you think comedians should be taken?
There was a Twitter storm to cancel Colbert's show after an arguably racist segment against Asians.
Bill Maher's old show, Politically Incorrect, was cancelled not long after 9/11 when Maher said the terrorists weren't cowards.
Colbert is a comedian and can kinda say whatever. There's freedom of speech. The public will dictate if they want to hear the message through ratings. I agree with Maher that is does take some balls to hijack a plane and crash it.
