Seth Rogen says comedians should stop complaining about cancel culture or just leave comedy

Movie celebrity Seth Rogen said that comedians should stop complaining about cancel culture or just leave comedy altogether.

The actor made the comments during an interview with "Good Morning Britain" on Tuesday. He was asked to comment on controversial jokes from his past movies.

"There are certain jokes that for sure have not aged well, but I think that's the nature of comedy," Rogen responded.

"I think conceptually those movies are sound and I think there's a reason they've lasted as far as people still watching and enjoying them today. Jokes are not things that necessarily are built to last," he explained.

He then criticized comedians for complaining about cancel culture,.

"To me when I see comedians complaining about this kind of thing, I don't understand what they're complaining about. If you've made a joke that's aged terribly, accept it. And if you don't think it's aged terribly, then say that," he said.

Rogen added that criticism was "one of the things that goes along with being an artist, and if you don't like that, then don't be a comedian anymore."

Rogen's comments run contrary to those of many comedians who have warned that the witch hunt by the woke police has been destructive to their industry.

Chris Rock said in an interview on the "Breakfast Club" that cancel culture has made Americans afraid of saying anything at all.

"What happens is everybody gets safe and nobody tries anything. Things get boring," Rock said. "I see a lot of unfunny comedians, unfunny TV shows, unfunny movies because people are scared to make a move and that's not a good place to be.

Comedy legend Dave Chappelle criticized "Saturday Night Live" members who refused to work with Elon Musk when he was invited to host the show.

"I'm torn, because I like a warrior for a good cause, but I'm really into tactics. You're not gonna nag people into behaving in a way — in fact, if you continue with this tone, even if you're right, you'll be very hard to hear," Chappelle said.

Rogen has also said that he is actively hiring fewer white people in order to take action against racism.
