Youp van ‘t Hek does not intend to choose words more carefully


Veronica Magazine talked to a number of well-known Dutch people about the ’embarrassment of the Netherlands’, including Youp van’ t Hek. He believes that ‘especially in this time when nothing is allowed anymore’ there is a need for his jokes. “Nowadays I do not pay more attention to my words than before. That is because I almost only laugh at wrong humor. Humor that does not fit in with the current fussy zeitgeist,” said the columnist.

“I am always afraid that Arie Boomsma will see me laughing”, he continues. “Because then he immediately draws his conclusions: that Van ‘t Hek is a racist homophobic. Because Arie is good and I am not. That is how the decency tight man also called Johan Derksen a racist. While Johan is simply the Cliniclown of a Drenthe retirement home who regularly has a totally wrong joke. “

Youp therefore believes that you can just make any joke: “Even if it is the worst joke of all time.” Youp: “I now think of René van der Gijp in that Veronica Inside put on a blonde wig. The fuss that followed – come on, say. It’s just a joke. It’s all made so heavy. There are much more important things in the world. “

Radio DJ Jeroen van Inkel shares that opinion. “Humor is by definition offensive to someone or something, that’s just the way it is. We live in a country full of wimps. There is always someone who feels hurt,” he says in the guide. “I just think that if we raise things with a little humor, it will be easier for everyone to live together. Now we are just going to be very spastic when certain sensitive words are used. Like now. I use the word spastic and immediately think: oh dear. “

Although he has become milder over the years. He explains: “Recently a Chinese minister visited Rutte around dinner time. I could easily make five jokes about that, but I didn’t do that anyway.”

Bobbi Eden also believes that you should ‘just be able to make hard jokes’. For example, she is very disturbed by ‘the nagging about adjusting certain elements in De Efteling’. Bobbi: “You can’t have a decent discussion about it either, it seems. It will and must go in the direction of a small club, because otherwise you are a racist, a homophobic, a hater and fill in the entire bingo card.”

It was also the question whether you can make corona jokes. Guido Weijers explains in the video below why it is important to do this.
