“Just because you have your line doesn’t mean it should be the line for everybody,” Michael Che said.
Saturday Night Live comedian Michael Che on Wednesday seemed to defend Kathy Griffin’s controversial photo shoot and Bill Maher’s use of a racial slur during a panel discussion at the 2017 Aspen Ideas Festival.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews moderated the panel and asked Che about comedians who have crossed the line like Kathy Griffin for her photo shoot depicting her holding President Trump severed head and Maher’s use of a racial slur during his show.
“Is there a line that is objective about what is just unacceptable?” Matthews asked.
“I think everybody has their own personal line, and what offends you might not offend me,” Che remarked.
“I just think as a comedian, speaking selfishly, I just wish if something, you know, crosses your line, it’s not something you say no one else can enjoy it because I didn’t enjoy it,” Che said.
“Just because you have your line doesn’t mean it should be the line for everybody,” Che concluded. “That’s where it starts to get tricky when they say, ‘okay, this is wrong and everyone should agree on it even though not everybody should agree’…I think that’s a little weird that everybody has to have the same line.”
