Twitter Goes After Conan O’Brien for ‘Racist’ Muslim Female Superhero Joke

Conan O’Brien uses his influential Twitter account almost exclusively to share jokes on the latest news with his more than 9 million followers that may or may not end up in his late night monologue. Inevitably, some of these jokes rub his followers (and the rest of Twitter) the wrong way.

Friday evening, O’Brien posted a joke about Marvel’s new Muslim female superhero that has caused a major backlash and brought out accusations of racism against the comedian.



The tweet received a barrage of angry responses from people who not only pointed out to O’Brien that his comment was prejudiced towards Muslims but also that the character being introduced by Marvel is a teenage girl from Jersey City, not a housewife from Saudi Arabia. In other words, there’s more than one type of Muslim woman.

Get over it people. It was a joke! If it was about a Christian girl, nobody would care.

You must not joke about Islam. Mormons, Catholics, Evangelicals, white males, republicans, etc. are all fine but you must not joke about the sacred cows of the leftist progressives.

A man goes into a sex shop and asks the clerk if they have any "Adult Love Dolls". The clerk responded, "we have a Christian doll and a Muslim doll." The man then asks, "What's the difference between the two? The clerk responds, "the Muslim doll blows herself up."

Anon 3:00 -- "Sacred Cows"? LOL - even the metaphor brings up a religion.

Count on some mealy mouthed leftist to take offense at that too.

"Sacred Cows" are delicious!

Apparently, even Muslims have learned how to play the "offended" card. It's just what we needed, another group of professional "victims".

Anon 3:52 They have been playing the offended card for decades. If it wasn't for oil they would all still be desert dwelling camel jockeys.
