Rob Schneider has defended fellow comedians Kevin Hart and Louis CK in a Twitter rant, in which he pointed out: Jokes are words.
The 55-year-old took to social media to speak out for Kevin Hart, who pulled out of hosting the Oscars after tweets in which he used homophobic slurs in 2009-2010 were unearthed.
He also spoke out in support for Louis CK, whose recently leaked set shows him mocking the Parkland shooting.
Theres a lot to unpack.
In now deleted tweets, Rob referenced Ellen Degeneres arguing that Kevin should be reinstated as the host of the Oscars this year, writing: I support @TheEllenShow supporting @KevinHart4real. Comics are the ones who are supposed to say the horrible things we all think but dont.
He added: FREE LOUIE CK!! JOKES ARE WORDS YOU F#CKING MORON C#NTS!!
Presumably summing things up, the Grown Ups actor quoted: ”Political correctness is just fascism disguised as manners.” George Carlin.
The Kevin Hart tweet comes after Ellen received a huge amount of backlash after featuring Kevin on her show, and saying that she forgives him for the homophobic comments.
She suggested Kevins critics were a small group of people and haters.
Whatevers going on on the internet dont pay attention to them. Thats a small group of people being very, very loud, she said.
We are a huge group of people who love you and want to see you host the Oscars.

The 51-year-old can be heard to say: Youre not interesting cause you went to a high school where kids got shot. Why does that mean I have to listen to you?
How does that make you interesting? You didnt get shot. You pushed some fat kid in the way and now I got to listen to you talk?
Rob appears to have since deleted all his tweets except one that reads: History has not and will not look kindly on those that suppress others freedoms of expression.
