Burr joked that it’s feminists, not men, who are blame for the poor viewership of women’s sports, which he said are in some cases subsidized by men.
“You’re playing in a 20,000-seat arena — 1,500 people show up. That’s not a good night! The promoter lost his f***ing ass on that gig,” the comic said about U.S. women’s soccer, according to BroBible.
Burr then moved on to the WNBA, and the league’s notorious low attendance at games.
“Look at the WNBA: they have been playing in front of 300 to 400 people a night for a quarter of a century,” he said. “Not to mention, it’s a male-subsidized league. We gave you a league and none of you showed up.”
“Where are all the feminists?” the 54-year-old joked. “That place should be packed with feminists — faces painted, wearing jerseys, going f***ing nuts like the guys do! … None of you went to the f***ing games.”
“You failed them,” he told feminists. “Not me. Not men — women failed the WNBA. Ladies, name your Top 5 WNBA players of all time. Name 5 WNBA teams. Name the WNBA team in your city. You can’t do it!”
Sports site AS noted in March that NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in 2018 that the WNBA had lost about $10 million each year since its inception, adding that pay increases for women’s players likely just means even bigger subsidies from the league’s highly profitable male counterpart, the NBA.
Burr is known for his politically incorrect humor. Back in 2018, for example, the comedian unapologetically pushed-back against the Left’s gender ideology, partially when it comes to children.
“The King of Staten Island” actor ripped “fascist liberals” for pushing their “gender neutral” ideology onto the rest of us during an episode of the “Your Mom’s House” podcast. Burr rejected the notion of raising his baby girl as anything other than female and lamented the “small minority” of fascist leftists who attempt to dictate our speech and shame those who, like himself, don’t fall in line.
“I would never do that to my kid,” he said on the podcast. “This kid has like a developing brain. I’m gonna dump my own constitution of s*** on them? That is like adult stuff, and you should allow kids to be kids. Can they have a f***ing childhood? … I would never have some political agenda.”
When told gender is now “subjective,” Burr replied: “I don’t agree with that. Good luck on how you want to raise your kid. I’m going to raise my kid the way I want to.”
“Look, my daughter is a girl and if she wants to work on carburetors or quote, ‘do some guy s***,’ I don’t give a f***,” he continued. “I opened my mind. I listened to you. I don’t agree with what you’re saying. It’s my kid and I’ll raise her the way I want to.”
