I knew comedian DL Hughley was going to use comedy as an excuse for his insensitive tweet about the death of Debbie Reynolds a couple of days ago.
That’s what comedians have been doing for a while now very figured I can say what they want to say and then hide behind the joke thinking they can get away with it.
The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart did it all the time, as does Bill Maher. They think they can escape ridicule and public heat by saying “all I did was tell a joke.”
Debbie Reynolds died a day after her daughter did! Black Mama's don't die cuz they kids do!They cry and say God don't make no mistakes!

The story that I put up after I read the tweet had a lot a black Americans who were disgusted by Hughley’s insensitivity.
Here are a few takeaways from the interview:
“I told a joke and people didn’t dig it, I understand. I tell jokes, that’s what I do. If people don’t dig it…that’s kind of their prerogative.”
“I imagine that they thought I was being insensitive, but most comedy tends to be insensitive.”
“I wasn’t attempting to be insensitive, I was attempting to tell a joke. And that’s what I do.”
“I believe that America is insensitive as it is, you voted from Trump. But you’re mad at me for telling the truth. F**k that.”
If you noticed in the video, he tried to swing the conversation against Donald Trump and away from him. That’s the mark of a coward. What did you think about this video? Drop your comments below.
