Ace comedian Basketmouth in a new interview with�Vox Africa,�got talking about�his rape joke that went really bad.
According to Basketmouth, he’s deeply sorry for what happened but�truth is everything in life is funny, there is humor in everything we do.
And no matter what�type of joke�one cracks as a comedian, there would always be people who would get offended.
Definitely I am sorry about what happened. The people that it offended…I won’t say the people that misunderstood but the people that it offended.�Now it limits the type of jokes
I’m going to be cracking right now.��
Sadly, every joke hits people the wrong way. If I crack jokes about food, there are people in third world countries saying, ‘Why is he cracking jokes about food? Have I chop na?’ They will just go on twitter and say ‘This guy should stop cracking jokes about food, I haven’t eaten’.�
�If you’re a comedian, you have the power to crack jokes because the truth is humour has no limits. You can crack jokes about death, living, anything you want to crack jokes about.�Everything in life is funny, there is humour in everything that we do.��
�When Basketmouth was asked�about people finding some particular jokes offensive, his reply:
The truth about jokes is no matter what type of joke you crack there are people in the audience that won’t find it funny. People get offended for different reasons.��
Wale Gates was telling me about a joke he cracked about his wife and how someone was upset and said, ‘Why would you crack a joke about your wife.’ And he said ‘Look, she’s my wife. If anyone is going to be upset, can you let her be upset?’ And she heard the joke before and she wasn’t upset.�
People take jokes in different ways, unfortunately everybody made it look like it’s the first joke that I’m cracking. I cracked a joke about �Two things involved” and it ended up being a positive angle and nobody talked about it. The only joke that people like that I’ve cracked right now is about me dying. I cracked a joke about my funeral and they loved it
�About his limits:
I crack my jokes according to the audience. So that’s my limit. I limit myself according to the audience, but when it comes to jokes there shouldn’t be any limit. But because of the culture and everything, you have to respect the fact that people might find it offensive and just hold back.
