The thing in a movie where a beloved bad guy is exposed as a villainous murderer & his audience boos & hisses him & throws fruit & it’s cathartic but in real life you know there’d be 700 outlets bemoaning the crowd’s incivility & “cancel culture” & the violence of thrown fruit.
And you know the villain would insist on his innocence even after being exposed & his fans would pretend they didn’t know what they had just found out about him so they could go on enjoying his songs even though they had just learned he stole them from the songwriter he murdered.
And for sure one of your favorite comedians of all time would open his latest special by announcing that he didn’t believe the accusers and his whole crowd would cheer, and the people who criticized the comedian for doing that would be scolded for being so rude.
