Try the people who actually lost everything they had in the hurricane. You want to call them overly sensitive if they're angered by a joke relating to their vast misfortunes right now?
Its not censorship. Its human decency.
You're lucky I didn't quote the stuff you said before others saw it
This from the guy who wouldn't donate to the Hurricane Relief...
Come on, it's a humor show, and while it maybe not be in the best taste, are we going to have to wait until the United States isn't overweight before they can show their new episode with a fat joke in it?
Personally, I don't care either way, I just don't think it's necessary.
There are many reasons why someone doesn't donate to that fund. Many people here have little or no funds. Just look at my name here for my financial situation. Either way, I have no problem with them not airing the episode right now. Many people will be watching that lost a lot during the hurricane and there will also be friends and relatives that lost loved ones in it that will be watching. 1 episode won't hurt the show.
So those people won't be upset 2 weeks from now? I find that hard to believe. It was a totally unrelated hurricane joke, and I think its just sort of unnecessary political correctness because SOME people may be offended by something that has nothing to do with Katrina.
If you lost property, friends, or family in that hurricane or any other, I'm sure that you would be singing another tune. I agree that society has gotten way too PC but I can understand in this instance. There is no time limit that will ease their pain. I don't have a problem with delaying or canceling 1 episode. It's not like they are removing the show again.
