‘Joker’ Director Says He No Longer Makes Comedies Because Of ‘Woke Culture’

Phillips is a breath of fresh air in liberal Hollywood.

Todd Phillips, director of the controversial “Joker” film due out later this week, is apparently not a big supporter of political correctness and “woke culture,” a sentiment he has not at all been shy about sharing in recent weeks.

Phillips recently sat down with Vanity Fair for an interview where he said that “woke culture” is the reason he has decided to stop making comedy films like “The Hangover,” opting instead to go for more dramatic fare like his newest project.

“Phillips had found it increasingly difficult, he says, to make comedies in the new ‘woke’ Hollywood, and his brand of irreverent bro humor has lost favor,” the Vanity Fair profile outlined.

“Go try to be funny nowadays with this woke culture,” Phillips told the magazine. “There were articles written about why comedies don’t work anymore—I’ll tell you why, because all the fucking funny guys are like, ‘F*** this s***, because I don’t want to offend you.’”

“It’s hard to argue with 30 million people on Twitter,” the director continued. “You just can’t do it, right? So you just go, ‘I’m out.’”

Phillips took on his latest project, “Joker,” because he wanted to make a film that was modern and “irreverent,” that wasn’t a comedic piece. According to the director, all comedies are designed, in some way, to be irreverent.

“So I go, ‘How do I do something irreverent, but f*** comedy? Oh I know, let’s take the comic book movie universe and turn it on its head with this.’ And so that’s really where that came from,” Phillips said.

As you can imagine, some folks, particularly on the left, were not too happy to hear this commentary on the current state of comedy from Phillips and lashed out at him, which was to be expected.

“Joker” opens in theaters this coming Friday, October 4th.

Nothing screams “we are good people” like assaulting an innocent police officer who had nothing to do with the death of Minnesota man, George Floyd. But protesters don’t care. All they want to do is inflict the most harm possible on the most people, in the most cities.

George Floyd Protesters Torch Nashville Courthouse, Dallas Business Owner Stoned & Beaten

What sense does it make to beat up on people who had nothing to do with a particular incident? These George Floyd rioters and looters are nothing but bullies who want attention. They’re bored. They weren’t given enough attention as children – or maybe too much. And now, innocent Americans are paying the price. On Saturday, the mayor of Nashville invited protesters to join him at city hall. What happened next was a complete disgrace.
