Call me the fun police but this isn’t some ancient history you’re talking about. It’s only been three years since Larry Nassar went to jail for the sexual abuse of dozens of children, including Maroney who was repeatedly molested since she was 13. Do we really want to be the kind of person who makes a joke about this? How would you feel if any of the victims or their families came across your comment?
How would you feel if it was you, your sister, or your daughter that was the punchline of a cheap joke making light of their deepest personal trauma? I’m prepared to be ignored or mocked for being uptight and self-righteous, but I sincerely hope that we can all do better. Just because we’re allowed to make a joke about something doesn’t mean we should.
