When Joel released a video statement after being attacked by Social Justice Warriors, he stressed the importance of everyone – especially comedians and public figures – standing up for each other. Even if you disagree with what another person says, it’s concerning that a group of people online are able to determine the fate of somebody’s career and livelihood. We never know who could be next, so we all need to stick together.
On September 23, 2016 Joel left his job after Social Justice Warrior’s started a Twitter mob over a tweet they found offensive. On September 26, Joel released this video.
