    Rob Schneider recently made some offensive comments during his performance at a hospital fundraiser and faced ample flak for it. His comedy set reportedly included jokes that have been deemed “transphobic, misogynistic, and anti-vax” by the audience present there, who received it quite poorly.

    However, even after the ample backlash at his recent performance, the comedian has contended that cancel culture is “over“. The 60-year-old was spotted walking through the streets with a drink when reporters from The New York Post caught up with him. When asked about cancel culture, Schneider confidently stated, “It’s over.”

    During the short interview, Rob Schneider also threw light on his involvement in upcoming sequels of his friend Adam Sandler’s films, including Happy Gilmore 2and potentially a third part of the ‘Grown Ups‘ series. “There better be,” he said about ‘Grown Ups 3’.

    Though he seems pretty unfazed by it, Rob Schneider is optimistic in the face of some heavy backlash after his supposedly transphobic comments. One of the guests at the event where he made these comments, Tynan Allan, described the room’s reaction to CBC when Schneider made the distasteful remarks.

    Everyone in the room was groaning, saying, ‘What is going on?’ Like, whispering to themselves,” he said, adding that there were moments with “not a single laugh.”

    The Hospitals of Regina Foundation, which organized the fundraiser, also issued a statement condemning Schneider’s jokes. “The content, positions and opinions expressed during Mr. Schneider’s set do not align with the values of our foundation and team,” the statement said, adding that Schneider’s performance “did not meet the expectations of our audience and our team.”
