Maher: ‘Emotional hemophiliacs on social media telling us what we can’t do’ are ruining Halloween

HBO host Bill Maher is fed up with people being offended over Halloween costumes and with woke progressives banning anything that threatens their “fragile sensibilities,” asserting that if they don’t like it, “just stay the f*** home.”

Halloween is typically a happy time of year with parties, costumes, candy, and celebrations that include more than a few adult beverages.

But every year, the left tries to cancel the holiday, throwing cold water on anything that even remotely seems fun. Wokesters are perpetually offended on Halloween everywhere they look and the host of “Real Time with Bill Maher” has had enough.

“If Halloween is too much for your fragile sensibilities and you’re worried about seeing someone wearing something that’s on the forbidden costume list, just stay the f*** home. Every year we go through this bullsh*t. Lists of costumes you better not wear, lest the night of irreverent dress-up spiral into something fun,” Maher stated Friday night, torching the “cancel” crowd.

He focused on media sites that are urging/warning/threatening everyone out there not to wear certain costumes.

“Here’s an idea clickbait websites… I won’t tell you how to harvest and sell my personal data and you don’t tell me what I can wear on Halloween,” Maher told them.

Halloween is supposed to be outrageous. It’s a festival of the sacrilegious and a celebration for the grotesque. From zombies to ghouls to bobbing for apples in other people’s saliva. Yet, every year, there’s a new list of offensive things we shouldn’t do on the day that’s all about being offensive,” he astutely pointed out to those trying to take all the fun out of life.

“You know what I wanna cancel? Nov. 1st, ‘All Scolds’ Day’ when the good people announce which costumes the bad people wore,” the irreverent leftist quipped.

“Buzzfeed, I mean, buzzkill, has a list of 23 costumes that they’re literally begging you not to wear. Of course this year the number one no-no is serial killer, cannibal, and Netflix sensation, Jeffrey Dahmer. eBay has already banned selling it because otherwise, it would be impossible to get a blonde wig and aviator glasses,” he continued.

“Simone Biles tweeted, ‘Put the Jeffrey Dahmer costumes back in the closet. We ain’t having it!!!!’ Who’s ‘we?” Maher snidely asked. “What’s with the ‘we?’ Who died and made you the Great Pumpkin?”

“I’m so tired of a handful of emotional hemophiliacs on social media telling us what we can’t do on Halloween. And by the way, please put drugs in my candy,” he snarked.

“Listen to these other verboten costumes on stupid lists this year including Queen Elizabeth because it’s too soon. … Of course, don’t even think about characters outside of your race and no genies because genies were slaves, okay? No sexy school girls, no Playboy bunnies, no celebrities accused of pedophilia, including Elvis,” Maher remarked.

“No zombie versions of deceased celebrities. Well, there goes my zombie Angele Landsbury idea,” he quipped. “No unhoused person. What we used to call a hobo, the default costume of every kid in history. No one with an eating disorder, so goodbye skeletons. And no transphobic costumes because if kids wanna see drag queens they can go to story hour.”

“No Putin, no Trump. No anything related to the Will Smith Oscar slap. No Johnny Depp and of course, Amber Heard is out, no sh*t. And nothing related to vaccines, COVID, or Monkeypox. So have fun kids and let your imagination soar,” Maher sarcastically stated.

He went on to tell kids all those costumes are great and that it’s their last connection to fun. Maher urged children to wear the costumes and to even combine them.

One of the best moments in the segment was when Maher pointed out that you can’t go as the “Handmaid’s Tale” even though it’s uber-progressive. Why? Because “it hits a little too close to home.” Priceless.

The whole segment is great this week unless, of course, you are easily offended.
