The only major difference with Metoo, is that for some (small vocal minority) they want to move that line back on historical items as well and can't accept things for this context of that time in history (ie, Baby It's Cold Outside).
The worst I've found is old stand-up routines that are full of gay jokes. I can't even listen to them anymore as it just seems so awful and mean.

Except Eddie Murphy’s Delirious which is the greatest stand up routine of all time and will never stop being funny no matter how outdated and offensive the material becomes.

Not too familiar with 50 Shades, but I assume the naughty domination business therein was consensual, with agreed to rules? Not rape.

I've heard lots of people say this, and without getting into too much of a diatribe I just never saw what was so great about Delirious or Raw.

Maybe it was overhyped, but I was never entertained by Eddie Murphy's stand-up comedy.

While I love most of Delirious the derogatory gay references are indeed outdated, mean, and uncalled for.

Perhaps it's a time thing, but even the first time I watched it 20ish year ago then it was too obvious much.

That said the second heckle in it was amazing. Live how Eddie completely broke.

Funny it was years before I found out what happened there.

Eddie Murphy had said if people heckled him about SNL he’d walk off stage. And it is Charlie Murphy in the audience that responds to the woman who yelled out “do Mr Rob”.
