The PC Debate

Many comedians such as Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Larry the Cable Guy, and many others avoid performing for college campuses nowadays. They blame “PC culture” (political correctness) for creating overly sensitive and easily offended audiences who take their jokes out of context, rant angrily on blogs, and in effect ruin careers! Do you think these concerns are legitimate? Or are these comedians overly sensitive and easily offended by the audience’scriticisms?
