"Jerard Carmichael sucking toes on his reality show"


          

dude is all the way out and I’m not sure but I think Tyler the Creator is a homie lover friend? Never new about Tylers personal life but nothing surprises me anymore.

I didn’t really like Carmichaels show but I wanted to like it. Seen every episode.

Is this is for him? Reality TV??

Even his masked lover friend was like “why you doing this?”

The clip of them talking about it is super uncomfortable but Tyler is such an asshole it’s kinda funny. Nigga bearing his soul to you and you order food and go outside to fart.

But yeah, “Why you doing this?” and “What were you expecting me to say?” seem to be the running themes.

and I googled and they say Tyler might be bi or gay.. but he might also be gay trolling fans just because he is an asshole, lol.

I have no idea what the end goal is here besides turning his sexual preference into art.

Wouldn’t be the first or last time

I’m really not understanding what is going on here with dude.

dude out here crushing on people and getting awards for it? wtf

and is it a joke or did this dude really have Puffy’s fur coat on and not edit it out given Diddy being the Diddler now?

He was a solidly good, but not great comic before coming out, did a great special in which he actually came out, then jumped the gay shark and is out here sucking toes. SMH.

I think Tyler is trolling. He's been doing that for a minute.

I hope he's making the decisions and it's not some producer leaning HARD in that direction without supervision.

I think somewhere in my head I was trying to bounce between being who Ive always been, which is “live and let live” but when I saw that and the dude just sitting on his lap … I just aint wanna see it.

He also comes across wild teenage/mid 20s like homie you too old to be this … soft in emotion.

I think all this new found freedom people have means they can do what they wanna do IDC and by IDC it also means its okay for me to not be an audience for stuff IDC about.

You have the hard right who think certain things should be shutdown or hidden.

You have a far left who thinks you have to love it or if you don't like it you are a hater or a phone.

But between that is just live and let live.

In response to Reply # 26


  

          

I read MEATs comment to mean he felt lightweight "bad" because though he considers himself a "live and let live" type of person, he didn't want to see Carmichael sucking toes and rubbing feet.

My point is he doesn't have to feel bad or feel like he is betraying his "live and let live" persona, you can be live and let live AND not want to see that.

What's missing?

I read that he hooks up with randoms on sex sites and while he doesn’t show sex, its an interesting pivot from the sitcom

Never thought that dude would be doing this in 2024 when I watched that show.

Recently saw a clip of Lil Rel blaming Black folk for not supporting JC’s work. I guess we are to blame for making dude perform toe sucking on camera.

Seeing a dude rub another dudes feet ... the way I felt about it felt bigoted.
I like dude's work ... so I was curious to see where the show was going, but yeah I may have to just not tune into this one.

Than hear any of his lame, boring, I’m such a sexy black nerd that’s anti-black, wet garbage ass jokes. Hope Tyler put his ankle in it.

In response to Reply # 0


          

On Tuesday, the actress logged on to the platform formerly known as Twitter and let off some jokes about Rap Sh!t getting canceled while the Jerrod Carmichael Show is thriving in its place on the Max streaming platform. Osman seemed to poke fun at the latest episode of Carmichael's show, where he made a joke about engaging in slave play with his white boyfriend.

"See if i woulda just let a white man call me harriet one time i could have kept my damn show," she tweeted.


what this dude doing?

and damn, they canceled South Side and Black Girl Comedy Sketch Show too

34. "That slave joke is a problem. Dude’s gone dark on social media"
In response to Reply # 0


          

In his thirst for fame dude is willing to say and do anything. What’s crazy is dude keeps bringing up Dave Chapelle trans shit in interviews (seems to always do this on his press runs now) yet it feels like he is doing this hoping Dave will say something about it.

Comic Jerrod Carmichael‘s testing of modern comedy audiences’ ability to grasp idiosyncratic race-based humor hit the skids quickly, as a gag made on his new HBO series tanked and many online criticized his message.

Carmichael, 37, dipped his toes into the concept of “slave play” as a sexual kink during a live stand-up moment on HBO’s Jerrod Carmichael’s Reality Show that dropped this week. In a moment on the show, the writer, director and comedy powerhouse spoke about his relationship with his white boyfriend.


“I sometimes joke to him that our relationship is like that of a slave and a master’s son — who, like, teaches me how to read by candlelight,” the comedian says.

In the episode, the joke lands with a bit of a thud and in the moment, the audience throws some shade, groaning and hissing. Despite this, Carmichael does not stop.

“Yeah, he groans too ’cause he’s a good person,” he says. “He doesn’t like that fucking joke. I like that joke. That’s my burden, I think that shit’s hilarious!’

After Sunday’s premiere, the clip quickly went viral across the web and social platforms, with several users saying that they believe that Carmichael is self-hateful and others just criticizing the controversial idea of race-based sexual slave play.

“The fact that he has a platform to spew this mess makes him a danger to the Black Queer community,” one audience member wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

“Jerrod Carmichael is a self hating narcissist,” another wrote.

Soon enough, Carmichael’s own Instagram account went dark.

35. "Don't assume he is doing any of this for fame. "

I've been saying for YEARS dude has always had an anti-black/self-loathing streak in his comedy.

This might be him being his true self.

Rontheil was good though (and actually light weight explains his self-loathing).

36. "Why do this for the cameras if not for fame? "
In response to Reply # 35


          

of course he has slave jokes about his white lover

that makes for great content and really puts gay black men in a positive light.

37. "Why suck toes and do slave jokes WITHOUT the cameras?"
In response to Reply # 36


  

          

He' doing this stuff whether there are cameras watching him or not. We may think about whether this puts gay black men in a positive light but he ain't think about that. He is being who he is.

39. "I am mad you got me talking about a nigga sucking toes extensively. "
In response to Reply # 38


  

          

My point is his thinking isn't, "let me suck these toes on camera to get some clout".

He sucking toes regardless if a camera watching or not.

My other point is, more traditional cats (like us) might be worried about doing shit like that an the impact it has on black people, but that negro ain't thinking about it like that at all. He's been dissing black people for a looong time.

Ok. I am not speaking on toe sucking any more.

40. "The writing and editing is interesting. I only saw the first ep"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

My wife is into the show more than I am. My main takeaway (aside from "tyler is funny") was that he's subverting the genre a bit by making the script so transparent.

Like the way the scenes are setup and edited together, if you abstract away the setting and the scene changes you can clearly envision how the script would read on a written page. You could have done some of the same conversations in a single scene vs. spread across multiple settings.

They also break the 4th wall a lot (e.g. Tyler farting and interacting with the camera man, other shots where camera or crew are visible) and having the masked character give a speech pointing out this is not real, camera is not neutral, this is edited, etc.

I know all reality TV is scripted / edited to varying degrees but here I think the choice to be so transparent was deliberate and makes the storytelling aspect of the show more interesting than if they'd just played it straight (no pun).

peace

I actually wish they'd do it more.

All of this! And the short montages they edit together are very well done. Episode 2 especially.
I didn't care for The Carmichael Show, but I loved Rothaniel, and I
think this is a great companion show to go with that stand up special.
