Jerry Seinfeld is the man. Known for being one of the greatest comedians of an entire generation, he has carved out quite a reputation for himself in the industry. His antics and comic timing have made him iconic, but that isn’t the only thing that makes him a comedian who is in his own league. The star of Seinfeld might be one of the most highly-rated comedians out there, but he doesn’t give a f**k about what others will think of him for saying a particular thing.

An all-rounder, Jerry Seinfeld has done it all in his life. He has won an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and a couple of Screentime Actors Guild awards. He is already royalty in the industry. And as if that wasn’t enough to stamp his authority, his crazy wealth suffices to prove how good he is.

Yet there is a dark side to Seinfeld. He is part of a rare breed, is unapologetic, and appears adamant to always be himself.

Jerry Seinfeld’s stubbornness has come to light on a few occasions. Be it the incident where he refused to hug Kesha (for she was a complete stranger to the 69 year-old), or how he refused to budge when posed a question about predominantly featuring white men in his show.

Back in 2014, Buzzfeed ventured to enquire the Bee Movie star why most of the guests on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee used to be white. It wouldn’t take them long to realize what a mistake they had made. After all, he was not someone who would mince words.

When Jerry Seinfeld heard the query, he couldn’t help but lose it. He said, tearing into the reporter,

“It really pisses me off. People think [comedy] is the census or something, it’s gotta represent the actual pie chart of America. Who cares? It’s just funny. 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 … To me, it’s anti-comedy … PC nonsense.” (Nicki Swift)

For his fans, this sentence encapsulates why the Top Five star is someone they must protect at all costs. But for the press, this isn’t an aspect they love. The press doesn’t love a man who doesn’t mince words. Not shocking enough. Seinfeld is someone who cannot care less about cancel culture, and is therefore a part of a rare species.
