Julia Louis-Dreyfus Disagrees with Jerry Seinfeld on Political Correctness, Calling Complaints a “Red Flag”


Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus has voiced strong disagreement with her former co-star Jerry Seinfeld regarding political correctness, stating that complaining about P.C. culture is a “red flag.”

“I think to have an antenna about sensitivities is not a bad thing. It doesn’t mean that all comedy goes out the window as a result. When I hear people starting to complain about political correctness — and I understand why people might push back on it – but to me that’s a red flag, because it sometimes means something else,” she said.

She did not elaborate on what she meant by “something else.”

“I believe being aware of certain sensitivities is not a bad thing. I don’t know how else to say it.”

Louis-Dreyfus was a staunch supporter of Joe Biden during the 2020 election, participating in fundraising and campaign activities.

Jerry Seinfeld has been a vocal critic of wokeness in recent years.

“It used to be that you’d go home at the end of the day, most people would go, ‘Oh, Cheers is on. Oh, M.A.S.H. is on. Oh, Mary Tyler Moore is on, All in the Family is on.’ You just expected [there will] be some funny stuff we can watch on TV tonight,” he said.

“Well, guess what? Where is it? Where is it? This is the result of the extreme left and P.C. crap and people worrying so much about offending other people,” he added.

Seinfeld was recently the subject of protests by woke students at Duke University who opposed his support of Israel in its conflict with the Hamas terrorist organization.

At Duke’s commencement ceremony in May, students walked out in protest of Seinfeld, who was set to receive an honorary degree. Some students booed the comedian and shouted “Free Free Palestine.”
