Sam Hyde, That Guy Who Created the Adult Swim 'Alt-Right' Show, Is a Real Sh*tbird
Adult Swim announced recently that it was canceling Million Dollar Extreme Presents: World Peace, a show that gained infamy for being popular among racist shitsacks and nazi wannabe asstwats of the festering taint boil we’re calling the “alt-right.”
The Hollywood Reporter interviewed the creator, Sam Hyde, and WOW is he some serious garbage. That “WOW” is not a surprised “WOW,” because of course he is, but the sound humanity makes when you jump on its chest like a mini-trampoline and all the air escapes through a cracked rib.
You mentioned earlier that comedians should stick by one another.
Not stick by one another but that an effort to assassinate a show — I’ve never heard of anything like that before.
But you have gone pretty hard after other comedians on Twitter. For example, shortly after Patton Oswalt’s wife died, you tweeted, “He killed her.” What instigated that?
(Laughs.) Making fun of people on Twitter and disagreeing with them is a whole different ballgame from having their livelihood destroyed, wouldn’t you agree?
But he was obviously going through something a terrible time. Why would you say that?
Well, I’ve forgotten what he was doing that would piss me off. But it was pretty suspicious that his wife was a murder-mystery writer and she dies painlessly in her sleep. That’s kind of crazy to me. (Laughs.) If he didn’t kill her it’s a sad thing. I’ll say that. But it’s f—ing suspicious as hell. It’s none of my business, but I think he said something to piss me off so I decided to ask him about that.
Do please keep the above passage in mind when you read this bit of self-unawareness:
But we aren’t what they are saying in these other articles. We’re not f—ing scum. We’re not people who callously try to create suffering and think cruelty for its own sake is funny.
Hyde definitely swims in the septic tank of the alt-right. A quick view of his Twitter feed shows retweets supporting Pizzagate and the mind-boggling notion of “white genocide.”
He also admits that he’s “average” racist but totally knows some cool black people and they never got “butthurt” about stuff.
So you harbor no biases against minorities, is what you’re saying.
No, I wouldn’t say that. I would say that I’m probably as racist or as biased as the average regular white guy or the average regular black guy.
One of the things that struck me while watching the show was that you hired actors of color — African-American, Asian — for sketches in which the jokes, to some viewers no doubt, appear to be mocking them. You do blackface in one sketch, for example. Did that ever get awkward on-set?
I don’t think so. A lot of the crew was black. Our assistant director was black. Our development executive was black. And I don’t think anybody got butt-hurt about what we were doing while we were doing it.
It should be noted that this interview was conducted by a gay Jewish man and when confronted, Hyde gets apologetic and starts making excuses for his comedy. He also called in and went off on Tim Heidecker for purportedly getting him cancelled. Such a snowflake. So #triggered.
Also there’s a bunch of pictures of him choking girls. So. That’s neat.
I fucking don’t know where any of this is going except a shower.
