FFS Friday - Blank

So. The Will Smith thing. I'm not going to talk about that. But I am going to talk about what triggered him. Rude comments being made about his wife. Not okay is it? But if we pretend it's a joke then it's okay? I've never understood that. Why should people accept something awful being said about them or their loved ones because it's said as a joke? It's still not okay. 
I can't watch shows where they roast or make jokes about people, it just seems cruel and unkind. Even worse when that person is sitting there listening and the camera is on their face to get their reaction. It's so very cruel. Expecting someone to sit there and laugh whilst they're being humiliated is wrong.
Perhaps it's time for it to be called what it is, cruelty. 
Cruelty is not funny and should be called out. Just not with violence, that doesn't stop anything. Now, instead of the attention being on the cruel act, all the attention is on the reaction. 
It happens a lot in society and it's not kind. People say awful things then pretend they're joking. Joke or not, it's still not acceptable. 
The world will change with kindness, not with cruelty.
That's all I have to say today.
