Comedian Jerry Seinfeld made some comments last week about not caring about "diversity" in Hollywood, especially in the area of comedy, and set off some very heated conversations across the country.
Seinfeld was on "CBS This Morning" being interviewed about his Internet-based show, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee." Seinfeld has been criticized in the past, as he is now, for having no minorities on his hit TV show "Seinfeld."
When asked about this by the reporter from CBS, Seinfeld said, "People think it's the census or something? This has gotta represent the actual pie chart of America? Who cares? Funny is the world that I live in. You're funny, I'm interested. You're not funny, I'm not interested. I have no interest in gender or race or anything like that...It's more about PC nonsense than are you making us laugh or not?"
