The more it is discussed, the more the writer gets what he wants: publicity.

I saw the show and wasn't offended in the slightest. I didn't think the show was great, but that's simply because it isn't my kind of thing, nothing to do with anything that certain people consider to be 'offensive' about it.

The way I see it, I think nowadays people are generally offended when they think they should be, as opposed to when they actually are.
For example, when reading through that Vice article, I can imagine many members of an over-sensitive, overly 'pc' general public, thinking 'oh wow that's offensive', not because they have actually been personally offended by it, but because they think that they have seen something which 'should' offend them.

That is the problem here I think, if people just stopped for a second to think about weather or not something has actually offended them personally, rather than just thinking that they should be offended by it to fit in with the common 'correct' perception, then less stupidity like this would happen.

But they don't need to actually SEE it Chuck, they can just hear about it and be offended enough to complain and call for its closure ;)

So I think we've beaten to death the discussion about whether or not its offensive. I think the next question is, what happens next? Is this the end of low-brow halloween shows?
You know that the execs will definately be scrutinizing everything about hhn next year to make sure there's nothing that can be used against them in the future.

You can still have a funny show without having to use "lowest common denominator" jokes (as I like to call them). Florida's Bill and Ted's was really good without a segment with a gay Superman...

Agreed, the Florida version this year was very funny. I didn't see one person having a bad time in the crowd when I saw it.
