No Offence Taken

Matthew Steeples questions the validity of  getting easily offended as a man “offends” a woman on the Underground by dressing as Samuel L. Jackson

 

People will always find reasons to be offended it seems. In the days of the overblown #MeToo movement our snowflake society cannot cope with anything that isn’t politically correct.

 

This morning’s Mail Online reported that a woman was outraged when she spotted a white man who’d made himself look like Samuel L. Jackson for Halloween on a London Underground train.

 

Whilst I personally wouldn’t do such a thing – for starters, I do not “do” fancy dress of any kind – that the bizarrely named Petra-Isabella Joli declared it “a bit racist” is a little bit ridiculous.

 

Why not get angry about something a little bit more serious?
