Default Watch the Daily Show eviscerate itself with response to SCOTUS’ abortion decision

Halfway through and we have the frontrunner for Tasteless Post of the Year...and conducted by the people that would be considered the ones most likely to have a Tasteless Post of the Year...

Watch the Daily Show eviscerate itself with response to SCOTUS’ abortion decision

Quote:
Comedy Central’s The Daily Show did not make any new friends today. After the Supreme Court overturned a law requiring strict regulation of Texas abortion clinics the show’s Twitter account celebrated the decision with this message:


Quote:
The tweet was ostensibly a joke but the response suggests it didn’t land with people left, right or center. People on the right were repulsed by the suggestion that abortion is something to celebrate and by the idea that abortion should be thought of as another means of birth control no different from any other. People on the left were upset because the tweet assumed a male perspective and failed to include the consent of the woman being knocked up, i.e. it sounded “rape-flavored.” Pretty much everyone agreed that whatever the joke was intended to be it just wasn’t funny at all.

And inevitably, soon there will be the usual Jon Stewart-esque dodging/shirking excuse for this tweet saying "you don't understand that this is COMEDY!"

Even NewsMax was honest enough to admit that it offended both sides...
Daily Show's Tweet to 'Knock Someone Up' Offends Both Sides

I agree it was trashy.
