Thanks to the woke mob, classic movies, TV shows, and books are being “canceled.” Even recent series have been gutted, with episodes being erased from existence, out of fear of these leftist idiots. We always knew Hollywood lacked a backbone. But the rate at which it is censoring its own content is shocking.
Word began to swirl that actor and filmmaker Ben Stiller had apologized for one of his most iconic films. Fans reached out to the man on Twitter, asking him to stop apologizing for the hit movie, which came out all the way back in 2008. Stiller set the record straight. He was in no way apologizing–to the outrage of the woke mob.
From Daily Wire:
Ben Stiller hit back at the woke cancel culture mob and said he makes “no apologies” for his 2008 comedy “Tropic Thunder” and disputed a tweet alleging he had previously apologized for the film…
“I make no apologies for Tropic Thunder,” Stiller replied. “Don’t know who told you that. It’s always been a controversial movie since when we opened. Proud of it and the work everyone did on it.
I make no apologies for Tropic Thunder. Don’t know who told you that. It’s always been a controversial movie since when we opened. Proud of it and the work everyone did on it. 🙏✊😊

Ben Stiller responded on Twitter that he has never “apologized” for making the hit film Tropic Thunder and refuses to do so today. He said he is proud of the work and said the film had always been controversial.
The comedy had been deliberately written as a satire that intentionally trampled on numerous sacred cows. The film features blackface, mockery of the mentally disabled, and other things that the woke mob would consider “hateful.” But, that was the point of the film–to criticize overly sensitive people who are triggered at the drop of a hat.
Stiller’s stance would have been expected of any filmmaker, actor, or comedian… just five years ago or earlier. Creators have always made content that shakes the status quo or goes out of the way to offend or satirize.
That’s what satire is supposed to do. But this entire genre of art has been destroyed, thanks to woke leftists who are more and more looking like the villains out of 1984. They have forced numerous entertainers to apologize for jokes, songs, books, TV shows, and movies.
Stiller is striking back, however, joining a growing group of creators who refuse to bend their knees to the left. Several notable comedians in recent years, including Joe Rogan and Dave Chappelle, have refused to apologize or censor themselves to appease the left.
And it seems more creators are joining them. Hell, maybe soon we might win this war!
