Here is what Meyers and his writers consider a joke: “A Spanish hotel inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey [a popular porn book] is having its opening delayed because officials are concerned that it’s too close to a nearby Catholic Church. ‘We don’t want to be next to all those creepy perverts’ said the hotel.”
I would bet my last dime that those who wrote this live a twisted sex life. Why do I say this? Because in discussions I have had with media executives, they say it is widely known that many of these late-night monologues are written by such folks.
Meyers, of course, is under no obligation to use this material. If we substituted “gay bathhouse” for Catholic Church, he would reject the joke. For obvious reasons, no such joke would ever be submitted to him. So once again, bigotry and cowardice are at work at NBC.
