There is a discussion among comedians about punching up vs. punching down. Meaning you can punch jokes and make fun of those who are above you. Those jokes can be funny. But those who are below you, like rape victims, disabled people, or fat people are people you punch down. And punching down isn’t funny or fair. Making fun of other people’s problems isn’t funny. Can we go back to being funny?
