Stop the Fat Jokes on Late Night

March 25th, 2011

When’s the last time you heard a late night comedian make fun of a fat man?

Making fun of a woman for her weight isn’t funny. When a comedian I like makes a Kirstie Alley fat joke, I lose a bit more respect for that comedian. It’s sad. It’s too easy, and it needs to stop.

No, I don’t watch George Lopez who made a pig joke recently, but I do really wish that Conan and Letterman (or anyone) would stop it.

On Wednesday, George Lopez compared Kirstie Alley to a pig, saying that she did a nice job on “Dancing with the Stars,” with “her little hooves tapping away.” He also continued with some BS about her going to market, eating roast beef and going all the way home, followed by some Geico footage of a squealing pig.

Lopez: Does it make you feel better to put other people down? What you did is called bullying. It’s distasteful and wrong. And a Twitter apology just doesn’t cut it.

If you agree, let TBS know that you want the fat jokes to stop.
