You keep doing what you’re doing, you are talented and we need more humour in the world especially now.
“People are too sensitive these days, and what you did was old school comedy where it just made you laugh no matter what. If people are offended then ignore them and please keep on doing you. Amazing.”
Another said: “You keep doing what you’re doing, you are talented and we need more humour in the world especially now, you can only offend people who have done or experienced what you’re saying.
“Congratulations on getting to final.”
A third commented: “Doesn’t matter. Just do you and continue to make those with a sense of humour laugh.”
