Hulu Web Comedy Series Features Character Who Writes Edgy Joke on Twitter and Gets Social Media Blowback; Show Actually Getting Real Social Media Blowback for Entirely Fictitious Joke, Which Was Presented as Being Over-the-Line

Okay, sorry about that last post, which is such a huge screw up that I can do nothing more than apologize abjectly on behalf of @comradearthur and pray you forgive him his exclusive responsibility for the mess he's gotten us all in.

If he were here to defend himself, I'm sure he'd be the first to blame himself. Well, actually, he'd be the second.

But via Mary Katharine Ham, rounding up the new outrages of the day (Oh no -- someone's going to play dress-up as Caitlyn Jenner, who isn't actually Caitlyn Jenner), she drops this amazing story of how loathsomely stupid our society is:

A tasteless joke by an inept comic in Amy Poehler's Hulu series -- a joke designed to demonstrate the character's incompetence -- instead has redounded against Poehler, and brought out the Twitter tomato-tossers.

This is complicated, so pay attention: Poehler has a new series on Hulu called Difficult People, which has gotten some good reviews...

The main character, played by a Julie Klausner (Poehler produces but does not appear in the show), writes a twitter joke about how she can't wait until "Blue Ivy" (Beyonce's kid) grows up to be old enough to be peed on by R. Kelly (a rapper who got arrested due to his enjoyment of urinating on underage girls).

The joke is not presented as funny in the show -- no one but the Klausner character thinks it's funny -- and she catches grief for it on Twitter. Her boyfriend or husband (not clear) gives her only an awkward silence as she tells the joke.

But, America now having a lower rationality level than primitive people who are still burning "witches" at the stake, of course morons have to attack the show and Poehler for the joke.

Here now the new Scholars of America:


Shut the f*** up, Dummies.
