In Poor Taste
Comedy is so volatile. There are comedians who somehow get away with joking about serious — even tragic — events and receive belly laughs from their audience. But usually, joking about tragedy doesn’t go over so well. For instance, take this tweet by Gilbert Gottfried, when a 2011 earthquake in Japan caused a tsunami on its shores.
After that comment, Gottfried was reamed out by his followers for his insensitivity. With the results of the tsunami, most people found it wasn’t the time to joke or make light of the intense situation. It seems to be a running theme that actors’ tone-deaf tweets are met with poor responses.
