Duke University students walk out on Jerry Seinfeld’s commencement speech, chant 'free Palestine'

The comedian's steadfast support of Israel resulted in calls to cancel his graduation day appearance.

Such a precious generation. They're in for a rude fucking awakening.

I'm certain Elaine would be in the streets yelling "From the river to the sea" to impress some Gaza stud she is trying to pick up

Why do they book the most irrelevant old people on the planet to give college commencement speeches? I mean, middle-eastern politics aside, these kids have no fucking idea who Seinfeld is, unless they've seen him whining in headlines in the last week about how the youth are too "woke." So many people around his age, like Bill Maher, have just turned into right-wing embarrassments in their old age.

r3 they know he's a man that turned a comedy career into a billion dollar net-worth. Doesn't matter if they've ever seen Seinfeld or not, he has loads of wisdom to share about the pathway to success. He's one of the few billionaires with high name recognition. So, they book him because he's famous and has a fantastic story about achieve some of the highest success in show business, business-business, and a perfect American dream tale.

He comes across as thoroughly unlikeable.

Jerry Seinfeld is the least funny thing about his show. I LOVE "Seinfeld", but it never would've been what it is without Larry David, and the rest of the main cast, who should've been given more on the back end. Julia Louis Dreyfus will never have to worry about money anyway, but that main cast deserved a larger piece of the show at the end.

The GLADD Awards were interrupted too.

Coming for Jews and gays, sounds familiar.

Stupid protestors.

The original Seinfeld thread deleted for no good reason.

R3 You are a maggot covered putrid piece of garbage. May you burn in hell's grease fire eternally. But I would be just as happy if a Muslim beheaded you.

My college commencement speaker was some preacher I never had heard of leaving me to pretty much just zone out until everybody stood up. No clue how we got stuck with him.

I'd have loved to have had somebody like Seinfeld. At least I think he would have kept me awake.

I just assumed this generation would be more savvy to the pitfalls of scams, but as we can see that is certainly not the case with Gen Z. Even the Silent Generation seems to have a much greater awareness of the current world than Gen. I am glad oldies have become more resilient to those who can so easily manipulate younger people into throwing their lives away based on 20 seconds of TicTok videos.
