Forever too soon: Michael Ian Black’s 1 World Trade Center joke doesn’t fly

@michaelianblack when you posted this on twitter, did you also paint a target on yourself?

What’s the chance that somewhere there’s a publicist trying to spin Michael Ian Black’s tweet as a tribute to good old American defiance in the face of tireless threats? In the meantime, other up-and-coming comedians might want to take note: most of America isn’t quite ready for 9/11 humor yet, and likely never will be.

@michaelianblack Too far.

All true. RT @whitedoncheadle According to the contributors of a conservative website, you’re a canadian nobody who hates freedom & america.

Michael Ian Black explains his intent:

@infideljustice Well here’s the thing: do you think I don’t know that? That 3,000 people died there? 1/2

— Michael Ian Black (@michaelianblack) May 3, 2013

@infideljustice Do you think my comment was meant to, in any way, make fun of them? Or is it possible that there was a different intent?

@infideljustice 1 more thing, then I will leave you alone. My tweet was meant to express concern that this building will be attacked…

— Michael Ian Black (@michaelianblack) May 3, 2013

@infideljustice That more people will die because we decided to rebuild even bigger as a fuck you to the terrorists. Naturally it will be…
