I gotta ax you a question. Was he tweetin' from a liberry?
 
2013-12-21 03:51:08 PM
In his defense, I think he was making a joke about African-American names, not illiteracy. LaSonia does sound pretty African-American. I don't think Martin has a racist bone in his body.

/or his nose...

This seems important.
 
2013-12-21 03:58:54 PM
THIS MEANS SOMETHING
 
2013-12-21 03:59:48 PM
Oh, also, he was born a poor black child, so it's okay.

Barely moving the needle on my RighteousIndignationMeter. Also, I snickered. That has to count for something.

Also this:

a particular individual: In his defense, I think he was making a joke about African-American names, not illiteracy. LaSonia does sound pretty African-American.

 
2013-12-21 04:12:18 PM
I guess he's got no chance at a reality show now

~~Oh, also, he was born a poor black child, so it's okay.

I see what you did there.

You mean I'm gonna stay this color?
 
2013-12-21 04:27:52 PM
That was the least offensive racist joke I've heard today.

Not on A&E, at any rate

He made a dumb joke about trendy names.  He realized it wasn't all that funny and potentially offensive, and he deleted it and apologized.  Non story.

That's what I was thinking, too. Guy made a poor joke. He apologized. It happens. I don't believe for a second that he meant any offense by it.

Well, he was born a poor, black man.

He's White?

Geez, people are just itching to see a celebrity touch the third rail.

It was the most offensive racist joke I've heard today.

/ also, the only racist joke I've heard today

All right, this shiat with the social media is getting ridiculous in two ways.

1)  Non  one really knows if the person tweeting or facebooking or emailing or any other iThing is actually the person making the statement and

2) Lighten the fark up.
 
2013-12-21 06:41:56 PM
OH NOES!

/IMHO, no need to apologize.

If I recall correctly though, he had his cock shortened and became a TV weatherman.

That's nothing compared to when he tweeted an imaginary ping pong game during the Sandy Hook massacre and just kept going on obliviously for hours with it not comprehending why people were asking him to stop. He apologized and stopped tweeting for several days after that debacle. It was like watching an alcoholic realize he had a problem. I think Clooney's on the money about Twitter having almost no upside for celebrities.
 
2013-12-21 07:25:30 PM
Unfunny and racist?  Did he Tweet the Pink Panther remake?
 
2013-12-21 07:27:05 PM

Earguy: Geez, people are just itching to see a celebrity touch the third rail.


Dang I guess. He deleted it, acknowledged it was in bad taste, and apologized. Still...

"The 68-year-old star has resumed tweeting this morning without mentioning last night's mishap. "

He's still tweeting without apologizing every time??? BLOOD FOR THE HUFFINGTON GOD!
 
2013-12-21 07:29:17 PM
LOL. That was funny.

Steve Martin is such a comedian!

Anyway, I believe African-Americans spell it Lh'shaunya.

I was not offended at all.

2013-12-21 07:34:06 PM
Well excuuuuuuuse me!!
 
2013-12-21 07:34:55 PM
I don't get it.
 
2013-12-21 07:35:47 PM
I chuckled. Aren't stereotypical names fair game for bad jokes? Groups with naming stereotypes attached include at least: day labor names/ hipster child names/ german-people names/ hippy child names/ african-american names/ arabic names/ WASP names/ redneck names and of course the list goes on. It's low hanging fruit, and it's not super clever, but how is it racist? Perhaps we're not totally aware of what the word racist means?

/confused

Comedians apologizing for jokes. We're regressing as a culture.
 
2013-12-21 07:36:26 PM
I took it as a misspelling of lasanga.
 
2013-12-21 07:48:07 PM
Steve Martin has an excellent way with words.

But whatever he said, I can't be bothered to care.
 
2013-12-21 07:48:52 PM
What was racist about it?
 
2013-12-21 07:59:01 PM
JESUS... Is Fark becoming Gawker with all the Racist Poutrage?

We're white white and we're upset white people said stuff about non-white people for non-white people. White people.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Comedians apologizing for jokes. We're regressing as a culture.


The PC Left has won.

Jesus. You gotta be f*cking kidding me.

//I'm outraged at the outrage.
 
2013-12-21 08:05:34 PM
This is the biggest non-story that's ever appeared on Fark.

Clearly that's what happened here. I expect to hear press conferences and long national discussions about this incident.

And not, you know, absolutely NOBODY caring about this but a couple touchy retards.

/Retards.
 
2013-12-21 08:07:51 PM
It was funny. Sorry. At least he didn't go on an extended rant about homos/sin/whatever
 
2013-12-21 08:12:06 PM
The bar is pretty low for what's "racist".
 
2013-12-21 08:12:21 PM
Tweets, don't fail me now!!!
 
2013-12-21 08:15:27 PM
BURN THE WITCH!!!
 
2013-12-21 08:17:00 PM
Mildly amusing and not very racist.
