The guy defended Louis CK, Rosanne, and just about every other sexist, racist monster in the comedy industry.

He once called the word cisgender a term "for marginalizing normal people"

I wish he could have spent another 9 years in terrible cancer agony

You can kind of tell when I stopped being aware of what he was up to based on the clips I posted; honestly not surprised he went on to espouse some, uh, views

Appreciate the info; I think it's important to include the good and bad when weighing a soul and I hadn't yet looked into the bad in this case

just my take, but in the grand scheme of things his bad moments were clearly part of his always-contrarian persona than any actual weighty social opinions. him being tone deaf in that way was a big part of his comedy so i never felt it was hard to take his schtick with a grain of salt. but i do get why he pissed some people off.

If you're pretending to be an asshole 100% of the time you're in public, then a) at some point you're no longer pretending and b) I think you can reasonably expect people to think of you as an asshole

We're all doing a character around other people

Yeah, sure, that's fair, but I don't really think he was pretending or being an asshole 100% of the time by most accounts? He seemed like a sweet guy that most people around him loved most of the time. I obviously didn't know him personally so could be absolutely wrong.

I was really just just meaning to say people's adverse response to the examples of him being a dick hasn't weighed 50/50 for me in the scheme of things. Totally fair if it does for others or crosses a line beyond that.

That is sad. He faces much stiffer competition in the race for "favourite dead comedian."

i'm hard pressed to find a celebrity who hasn't said or done shitty things at some point in their lives or careers. i certainly disagree with his statements as mentioned above, but i still loved his comedy and some of his other points of view that i did agree with.

but wishing another 9 years of cancer agony on him? fuck off with that shit. gross. shame! shame!

I do get the impression he was a sweet guy to most people, obviously well-loved in the comedy community, and it's fair to weigh that against the shitty things he's said/thought

I also wonder if wishing him nine additional years of agony is a bit much, but then again, I was never the target of his comments, so it's not my place to judge how MyOneAndOnly feels about it

Unfortunately MyOneAndOnly's wish has reverberated through time, and Norm now did in fact suffer from a total of 18 years of cancer agony

No takebacks, I'm afraid
