Did a big group of white people really just applaud a joke about what POC "should" be protesting?
They're sort of in a bind there. If they don't applaud, they're seen as being too threatened and reactionary, not finding Rock funny. If they do applaud, they're seen as "agreeing". It's kind of like hitting "like" on a post about terminal cancer. ‎· Spidra Webster
A lot of them didn't exactly look uncomfortable or uneasy about applauding there. They were pretty into it. ‎· k8s
I don't have any way of replaying it but I saw a lot of uncomfortable looks during that monologue. ‎· Spidra Webster
Some seemed a bit too enthusiastic when clapping after the lynching joke. ‎· k8s
