@DaniIsAGoddess It is an immutable fact that joking about someone's disability, especially in a public forum, is rude and impolite.
Some here seem to be confused so, the OP is not:
- Offended on someone else's behalf.
- "Cancelling" anyone.
- Forcing anyone to say or do anything.
The general takeaway here should be this:
When it's just you and your friends, you do you. But when you are on camera or in a public forum you should try to be conscious of how what you say or do will affect other people. If you mess up that's fine, listen and treat it as a learning experience and try to do better (or don't and be judged accordingly). The purpose of the post, although admittedly murky, is to give well-intention-ed and otherwise uninformed people the opportunity to learn and grow and adapt their behavior to be more inclusive of others.
Pretty basic imo, and it is something that Linus, as a public figure, obviously does do.
