No one that I know of who is discussing the whole Tosh thing and adheres by the “no heckling” rule is expanding upon that latter bit. I guess they assume that the why’s of that rule is common knowledge but seriously, this is the main point that’s been bothering me about this whole debacle so if someone could give me or link me to an argument as to why I should be respectful and not heckle someone who is being blatantly offensive without seemingly any “satirical” point, then I’d like to hear it. That is, an argument that doesn’t involve the same regurgitated points re: free speech being the greatest thing ever or some imaginary sacred bond between the performer and the audience.
I know that the question seems like I’m being baiting, that I’m asking a question that I know the answer for, but the sanctity we’re supposed to hold above all else for the performer, I honestly don’t understand it.
