Nobody lost their job, the movie is still available - how on earth is this PC gone mad? Is an apology some sort of weakness? I think it's a strength.

When this first began trending on social media a couple of years ago, I blew it off as mostly tongue-in-cheek. A humorous satire of political correctness. The more I saw of it though, the more it seemed many of these people weren't kidding.
