With political correctness running roughshod over Hollywood, now is the perfect time for a billionaire to invest in a streaming service that prioritizes entertainment over wokeness.
We now live in an age where the Cancel Culture Clan routinely don their white robes of self-righteous totalitarianism and roam the comedy landscape of today and yesteryear searching for any heretics who have violated the ever-changing rules of the Church of Wokeness.
It was either Sir Isaac Newton, Huey P. Newton or Fig Newton, I can’t remember which, who once famously said, “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” And so it is with the politically correct panic of our time.
This is why I believe that anti-wokeness is poised to be a major growth sector in the entertainment industry in the coming years.
My idea to cash in on the current woke hysteria is to start a comedy streaming service dedicated to being resolutely anti-woke.
I call this streaming service… F.U.T.V.
Instead of the fear of offending the delicate sensibilities of the most fragile among us being our guiding principle, F.U.T.V. will make the unorthodox decision to actually treat viewers like adults and let them decide for themselves whether they choose to watch whatever ‘offensive’ comedy has been targeted by the snowflake Savonarolas looking to fuel their bonfire of inanities.
Caving to the PC mob
We just need a rich bastard with enough testicular and fiscal fortitude to fund this noble venture. There has to be some billionaire entrepreneur out there who realizes that as the corporate behemoths of Hollywood cave to the incessant bitching of the PC mob by casting aside controversial comedians, shows and movies, a gaping void is being opened, and an anti-woke streaming service can profitably fill it.
For instance, in recent years, a cavalcade of wildly popular sitcoms such as Friends, Seinfeld, The Office, 30 Rock, The Simpsons, Family Guy and South Park have all been branded with the scarlet letter of ‘P’ for problematic, due to various woke infractions regarding insensitivity towards race, ethnicity, gender, sexual preference and diversity.
