Seth Rogen recently appeared on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday (May 25th) and while discussing his new memoir, “Yearbook” he says he doesn’t understand comedians who complain about “cancel culture.”
GMB host Susanna Reid questioned Rogen about jokes that might not have aged well over the years, “I think that’s the nature of comedy. I think conceptually those movies are sound and I think there’s a reason they’ve lasted. Jokes are not things that necessarily are built to last.”

Seth says he doesn’t believe that jokes that don’t age well are examples of “cancel culture.” He went on to say, “getting criticism is one of the things that goes along with being an artist, and if you don’t like that, then don’t be a comedian anymore.”
Do you agree with Seth Rogen? Should you accept criticism as a comedian?
