When did it become Okay for comedians to come up with distasteful jokes about private issues?

The other day Comedian AY made a mess when he put up a joke about the moment when Kemen tried to rape TBoss at the Big Brother Naija reality show and just over the weekend, Comedian Bovi during his Man on fire show, joked about the increase in the rate of celebrity marriage crash.

While cracking his jokes, Bovi called out Banky W for misspelling the “Marry” in his proposal to Adesua Etomi, and said “This is just an indication of the cracks in their union and if not careful, the beginning of a woeful marriage”…of course everyone laughed but I think it was an expensive joke, why use the word ‘woeful” for a marital union that is just being birth.

He further went on to joke about Tunde Demuren and Toolz’ marriage.

He said “All the Ts are having marital crisis, Tonto Dikeh, Tiwa Savage, Toyin Lawani, Toke Makinwa….the letter T is even more pronounced in that of Tunde and Toolz Demuren, so their own split will be worse when it happens….now it has moved on to letter M, Mercy Aigbe…Mercy Johnson, should berra hold on tight…” and on and on.

Fine, he was trying to make everyone laugh and he succeeded but I think such jokes are too expensive.
