Billy Crystal Calls Comedy A 'Minefield' And It Blows Up In His Face
Comic Billy Crystal just bombarded.
In a New York Post article Thursday to advance his new film, "Here Today," the nine-time Oscars have was evidently gotten some information about the condition of satire and drop culture.
"It's turning into a minefield and I get it," he said. "I don't care for it, I get it. … I simply continue doing what I'm doing and that is everything you can do at this moment."
The "City Slickers" star got a significant response on Twitter, and it wasn't orgasmic like Meg Ryan in "When Harry Met Sally." It was more similar to a Bronx cheer for the 73-year-old Yankees fan.
"It's astonishing the number of doublespeaks and analogies are presented for 'we're irritated that white fellows can't say anything they desire any longer,'" one client composed.

Rather than crying about how individuals don't think you're interesting any longer, Billy Crystal could get off his butt and make Analyze This section 3, where he goes to space to collect the Freudians Of The Galaxy. It thinks of itself.— Jeremy Williams 🐯☯️ (@Metalyger) May 7, 2021
