Comedian Bill Burr is crass. And that's putting it lightly.
But for those who know and love his comedy—that is his appeal. Some people, however, didn't get this memo after watching his segment on Conan where he made some jokes about Caitlyn Jenner.
A few people on Twitter voiced their dismay at his bit, which focused mainly on him needing time to "say goodbye" to Bruce (Caitlyn's former name) and her new breasts.
If Bill Burr had an informed opinion on the trans community, it'd be different. Then maybe he could craft an intelligent joke about Caitlyn.— Jillian Gutowitz (@jillboard) August 21, 2015
@billburr I hope you realise how much of a jerk you were being about Caitlyn Jenner. you're a transphobic a hole ok. you're not funny— breanna perkins (@breisapenguin) August 21, 2015
Between Bill Burr on Caitlyn Jenner to Jeremy Renner calling Black Widow a slut, "Conan" remains the talk show to embarrass yourself on!— Tara Ariano (@TaraAriano) August 21, 2015
But if you actually look through Twitter, there aren't actually that many tweets condemning the comedian. This tweet exchange illuminates that fact perfectly.
Real outrage or people not understanding comedy? Meh. Probably a bit of both.
