“What I got to do sometimes is explain — which I hate — in big arenas, that this is a thought police thing, and I do not like it. But when I use these words, this is my intent behind those words,” he said.

Behar, a former comedian, chimed in, saying that the “PC culture” is making comedy “really hard.”

Allen called the situation “really alarming” for comics. He is just the latest comic to speak out against the social justice warrior penchant to attack views that don’t jibe with their own. Similar complaints have been registered by Dave Chappelle, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and others.
