Jon Stewart CURSED OUT And DEMOTED ONLY Minority Writer on ‘Daily Show’ After He Criticized Racist Herman Cain Sketch!
Comedian Wyatt Cenac was one of the writers on the Daily Show, but in a podcast with Marc Maron, he revealed that Jon Stewart yelled at him like a baby when he was challenged on a sketch that seemed racially insensitive to Wyatt. Cenac was also the show’s only minority writer at the time.
Cenac told comedian Marc Maron on his podcast that his last year on the show was miserable due to an argument he and Stewart had in which Stewart screamed at him to “f*ck off” after Cenac said Stewart’s impression of black presidential candidate Herman Cain was offensive.
It all started when Stewart did an impression of Cain on the show while Cenac was out shooting an assignment.
“I remember the way he did it, my impression… It reminded me of a Kingfish type of thing,” said Cenac, who was The Daily Show‘s only black writer during his tenure. “I don’t think it was from a malicious place, but it was from a naive, ignorant place. And it bugged me.”
After Herman Cain said that he found the impression offensive, Stewart called in his writers for a response that would double-down on his racism. That’s when Wyatt spoke up, and was slapped down by a petty Jon Stewart:
When Cenac said he also found the impression inappropriate, Stewart allegedly lost it.
“And then [Stewart] got upset,” Cenac said. “And he stood up and he was just like, ‘F*ck off. I’m done with you.’ And he just started screaming that to me. And he screamed it a few times. ‘F*ck off! I’m done with you.’ And he stormed out. And I didn’t know if I had been fired.”
After that, the segment aired as Stewart intended: a medley of all the people Stewart has impersonated over the course of the show, including other black men such as President Obama. Cenac spent a miserable final year on the show, demoted from writer/correspondent to just correspondent.
Yeah this is not surprising at all. A smug arrogant liberal like Jon Stewart thinks he can be racist as long as he’s down for the cause. And if anyone challenges him, he lashes out like a petulant child.
Remind you of anyone?
