“Look at comedy from 40, 50 years ago,” she said. “Look, as a comic I can see where the joke is. But there are just certain topics you just don’t discuss anymore.”

In addition to social progression and increased awareness of offensive rhetoric, she said the prevalence of social media means there is “no privacy … and you have to be really, really diligent about what you post.”

Gold went on to champion “freedom of speech,” however, saying that comedians can “talk about anything — the most subversive topics — if it’s funny.”
