Watch: Jerry Seinfeld Doubles Down, Rants About ‘Creepy PC Culture’

Less than a week after saying comedians stay away from doing shows at colleges because they are “too PC” and added that the age group at colleges just throw out terms such as “racist” or “sexist” without knowing what those terms truly mean, comedian Jerry Seinfeld once again expressed his frustrations with the political correctness of society in an appearance on Tuesday’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”

Seinfeld agreed with Meyers that the line for jokes has been pushed in saying they have been “for no reason” and explained how his jokes are now received and how it bothers him

“I do this joke about the way people need to justify their cell phone,” he said. “I need to have it with me because people are so important. Well, they don’t seem very important the way you scroll through them like a gay French king.”

“I did this line recently in front of an audience,” he continued. “And comedy is where you can kind of feel like an opinion. And they thought, ‘What do you what are you talking about gay? What do you mean gay? What are you doing? What do you mean?’ You know, and I thought, ‘Are you kidding me?’ I mean, we can’t even — I could imagine a time — and this is a serious thing. I can imagine how people say, ‘Well, that’s offensive to suggest that a gay person moves their hands in a flourishing motion, and you now need to apologize.’ I mean, there’s a creepy pc thing out there that really bothers me.”
