Hollywood Comedy Queen Explains Why She’s ‘Opting Out’ of Our ‘Culture of Demanding Apologies’

I love the show ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ on Netflix. In fact, I binge watched the entire first season while visiting a friend recently,and it wasn’t even the first time. The entire show is the epitome of satirical, and if you need that explained to you, the Internet and life is probably not for you:

An episode of her Netlix show “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” revealed that character Jacqueline Voorhees is Native American but had rejected her heritage. Voorhees is played by Jane Krakowski, who’s white.

Fey said in an interview with Net-a-Porter magazine that the Internet “was in a whirlwind, calling it ‘racist.’”

Therefore Fey said her “new goal is not to explain jokes.”

“I feel like we put so much effort into writing and crafting everything, they need to speak for themselves,” she added regarded her brand of humor. “There’s a real culture of demanding apologies, and I’m opting out of that.”

I LOVE this attitude. Opting out of PC drama is just up my alley. By the way, you might want to not get so butthurt if you want to use the Internet or the world on a daily basis.
