Some people pointed out he had an iffy history on race relations which opened up a whole new area of mocking, some "oh yeah I forgot he's a racist" comments, and a bit of a discussion along the lines of "Who cares? It's Tim Allen." LOL

Of course a couple of radical types took it all the way there but for the most part, it was just jokes because spades, bid whist, Tim Allen, and Woody vs Buzz isn't that important in the long run.

Twitter, and whats referred to as "Back Twitter" in particular, is really a running commentary on the Black Pop Culture topic of the day, and an excuse to clown around on the internet. Yesterday there was a running meme fest about the recently announced pregnancy of one of the rappers in City Girls. Sometimes discussions get serious and when it does, you will know. You won't click on the thread and see a bunch of jokes.

Right leaning outlets really need to stop taking Black Twitter in particular super seriously.
X 1,000,000! All of this.^

Tim Allen is another has-been who wasn't funny then and isn't funny now.

It is a popular show as both liberal and conservative views are articulated. You just don't like him because he is one of the few conservatives in Hollywood, and you are jealous.

So, he did two years for drug possession. So what? He certainly turned his life around.
Possession? Try felony trafficking. A pound and a half of coke. In the K-Zoo airport. Would have got life if he hadn't turned snitch.

As a middle aged white guy, I will let them decide what words they can and cannot use. By the way, there's been a lot of threads asking that same question over the years on C-D if you're really interested in answering your own question

"Proper-Think" thought police and "Proper-Speak" word police to the rescue. How has this world survived without these omnipotent beings telling us what we are allowed to think or say?

no one SHOULD use the word. its a word with a lengthy ugly history and really no good comes from that word. however its a free country and anyone can use. just be prepared to deal with the consequences.
