After getting cancelled in 2017 for several instances of sexual misconduct, comedian Louis C.K. made a statement confirming the allegations, expressed remorse for his misconduct, and then unsurprisingly laid low for a few years. Well, now Louis is back with a new special and he has released an excerpt from the show in which he nods to the cancellation without naming it outright. Rather than going into details about the incidents themselves, he briefly addresses the nuances of consent and then steers the focus on 'his thing,' meaning his sexual fetish. Was Louis C.K. using a bit about having a fetish to help maneuver himself out of the 'sexual harassment' narrative? Or is he brave for roasting himself about something humiliating? YouTube and Reddit comments suggest that the subject is still quite contentious.

Twitter Cancels 'Bean Dad' After A Series Of Unfortunate Tweets

If you've been on Twitter at all over the past 24 hours, chances are you've heard about the sorry saga of John 'Bean Dad' Roderick and his epic Twitter downfall. If not, we'll catch you up to speed. On Jan 2, @johnroderick posted a marathon of a Twitter thread, boasting at length about refusing to show his hungry nine-year-old daughter how to use a can opener to open a can of beans. In the thread he recounts encouraging her to struggle with the device over a span of six hours in hopes to help her build character, or something. An outcry across Twitter immediately ensued and it didn't take long for people to dig up many racist, sexist, homophobic, and antisemitic tweets from @johnroderick's past. This kerfuffle went so viral, it might even affect the future of Jeopardy! (Don't ask.)

'Bean Dad' is, without a doubt, the unfortunate first main character of 2021. Hopefully this isn't foreshadowing a very cursed year. We've collected some of the funniest Twitter reactions to the whole 'Bean Dad' saga. (Content warning: some of the screenshots of @johnroderick's older tweets contain offensive language.)

JK Rowling Calls For An End To 'Cancel Culture,' Proves She's The Ultimate Karen

JK Rowling is once again back in the limelight for yet another Karen move: this time she's signed an open letter calling for an end to online "cancel culture" on the grounds that she advocates for "open debate and freedom of thought and speech." This all sounds well and good until you remember that she's repeatedly been in hot water for her problematic comments and views about trans people and is now claiming that she's the one being oppressed. It's all incredibly cringey and we're really enjoying the reaction memes and tweets, which you can scroll through below!
