Comedians: forever toeing the line between funny and offensive. It's like a modern day "walk the plank" in a politically correct world.
Now Tina Fey refuses to apologize after her Netflix show "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" was criticized for what some viewed as jokes at the expense of Native Americans.
In response to allegations of racial insensitivity, Fey said: "My new goal is not to explain jokes. ... There's a real culture demanding apologies and I'm opting out of that."
