Some people are well-meaning but socially inept, like me. I mean, I probably wouldn't have dared to do that in front of other so many other people, but sometimes I wanna "challenge myself" and wanna go out of my comfort zone and if I thought for some reason that this would be funny, that it would make you laugh and that it would help us bond (because in my head I'm doing something edgy and you'll think it's funny, because I went there), I could totally see myself doing something like that to "break the ice" (not anymore, but generally speaking something like that could come from me). The whole scenario probably played out very differently in his head. He probably imagined that you'll get what's going on and laugh it off or something like that. I really don't think he anticipated that you'd feel mocked (at least I would hope so, cause otherwise it'd be cruel to do it). But I can empathise with both sides here (assuming of course he wasn't intentionally cruel). I can totally see how this is so not funny when you're at the receiving end and how it might feel like pushing a wheelchair user out of their wheelchair and saying "haha just stand up". In the end though it didn't go well and everybody lost, which is unfortunate. I guess all I wanna say is people should be less judgemental, cause I see people being very harsh on him here in the comments and I don't think it's fair. We don't know him, we don't know his life. Maybe he's a very sweet and caring person, who just royally fucked up and completely miscalculated his actions because he was a nervous wreck and anxious about meeting you. I know that I would feel horrible if I had tried cracking a joke realised what I had actually done to the other person. If it was a genuine mistake and not arbitrary cruelty, he deserves another chance imo.

I have type 1 diabetes and one thing that always crosses a line for me is like having a bag of candy and saying "I'm gonna eat this bag of diabetes", or something like that. That is NOT how you get diabetes.

I'm not legally blind, but I'm visually impaired, so I make a lot of jokes about that. Poking fun at myself is how I cope with things that I'm insecure about, but there definitely is a line. I totally agree with you on what's not funny; I can't stand when people make "jokes" that are actually just mockery.

My dad was blind & he made jokes all the time. His favourite joke to make was if he bumped into someone/something, he would say, "Sorry, I didn't see you standing there.". Sometimes people would look at him & not know how to react, but he would start laughing & they would too.

I’m not blind, but I do have really thick glasses to replicate the lenses that are missing from my eyes. My friends call me blind as a joke and some others do too, even though I can see pretty clearly with my glasses on. I’m not mad about it because the difference is that it’s not true, i call my friend dyslexic and he calls me blind but ever since my mum reacted hurt for me I’ve almost felt awkward owning my disability, it’s like all of a sudden the joke which I loved making became me bullying myself even though I’m not. I just wanted to watch this to make me feel better so thanks!

My dog is blind. I refer to myself as his guide human. We often make little jokes about his blindness, but never anything mean, of course.

I totally agree on your view on jokes. I only found out about your channel today (through Tommy Eddison's channel, and by the way, his jokes are amazing) I decided to put a joke here, too. It's not specifically about blind people, but it still works. From "A bit of Fry and Laurie" (if you haven't seen it yet, I totally recommend it) "I walked into a shop the other day... 14 stitches!"
the joke with a plate was ... like just leave. Why ppl are so rude ?
Ew that joke "did you?" is so rude and dumb. i hate every person who said it

The thing with moving the food away is...what's even supposed to be funny about that? The only 'joke' there is that you couldn't find your food when he moved it away, which it's like...obviously you wouldn't be able to? The number one rule of comedy is that it has to be funny.

I'm a bi girl and my friends in the LGBTQ community and I make jokes about our sexuality a lot, which I'm totally cool with. But sometimes people outside of the community like family members *cough* Dad *cough* and they just make me really uncomfortable. Though it's ussually well intentioned since it's not someone with a shared experience it just feels harsh and idk uncomfy. It just feels invasive I guess, like that's my thing to joke about, ya know?
Anita Wifladt (3 months ago)
I so agree with the statement " the joke is only funny if the person being joked about is laughing too" otherwise it's just mean.

I joke about my depression and my friends do to but when someone makes a joke about my self harming problem it goes beyond the point of comedy to just being rude cause. that's very personal information that I felt safe enough to tell you, and you abused my trust. same with jokes about me being gay I'm fine with that but, I had a friend once say a gay joke about me in front of the whole class and I got bullied for that the rest of the time I went to that school

I get what you're saying, I'm registered blind 20 200 (macular dystrophy), I'm quick witted, like puns and don't mind general blind jokes, the line for me is when I'm struggling to see and do something then have someone think it's time for a blind joke rather than help, I like jokes so maybe it's easy to think it's ok but there's a difference between a general joke and ridiculing someone that's struggling as it's more like bullying.

It's not really a joke specifically for the blind but one time I was visiting a friend who was blind and he doesn't need the light to go down the stairs. I couldn't find the light switch so I walked down the stairs in the dark and fell down them. My blind friend said "Are you okay?" I said "Yes I'm fine I just couldn't see because the light was off." my blind friend said "I don't need the light, I'm blind ya know" I did find it funny that me being a person who can see fell down the stairs of a blind person's house. :)

That guy who got you food and was mocking you was a jerk Food isn’t something to mess around with
Erd Tird Mans (3 months ago)
Video explained it perfectly. Only thing I might say is that it's wildly funny when you - the person - actually do change your language. The other people around you have this moment of "That was an odd choice of wor- OH RIGHT haha" And I would have punched that dude in the face for the plate-moving shit. That's so obviously not a good faith joke.

So when i was younger i had cancer and last year i returned at going to school and one day at the bus going back home a girl accidentally threw a little piece of paper at me , she apologised and i said that it's ok it has happen to me something worse and i meant that a bird has pooped at my head (long story) and a guy who was sitting on the back seat of mine (who knew that i had cancer) said "yea not like you had cancer or anything" and i think that violence is not the best answer but i slaped him and his bro slaped him and i felt sooo good and then i didnt talk to him for a month

Richelle Heacock (4 months ago)
I love how you make the distinction about really seeing something with your eyes or just using it in context. When I coached volleyball, we would always talk to the kids about taking in information. We would ask them what does the word “look” and what does the word “see” mean. We would have them define the words without using that word in the definition. Basically by the end, we would come to the conclusion that “look” meant focusing on something and “see” meant understanding. So when you look & see something, you’re really focusing and then understanding the information you’re taking it… However it is you take it in! Love your videos Molly! I was paralyzed in a car accident nine years ago this January. You inspired me to start my own channel and I use you for inspiration all the time! Thanks girl :-)

A woman is at home naked getting changed when she hears a knock at the door. Who is it, she calls out. The blind man, replied the voice. So the woman shrugs and lets the man in. Nice tits, now where am I hanging these then said the man, surprised.
Matt Jackson (4 months ago)
I agree. There is a difference between joking and being funny versus plain bullying. Like me and my family laughing about how my dad and I are bald my brother is cocky and arrogant my mum is short chubby and not very feminine. All laughing together. Wheras my ‘friends’ or classmates would laugh and say ugg look at how you write, look how awkward he is or making mr bean noises or booting my football as far away as possible right when it was time to go in from lunch. One is fun the other is bullying.

I was actually lambasted by my friends for asking a disabled public speaker if he makes jokes about his disability. I literally asked “Do you ever make jokes about your disability to cope?” And he was really nice since people were getting out of their seats ready to find me and hit me and he actually tried to calm everyone down and said that I had the right to ask the question and he replied (he was paraplegic) “Yeah me and my friends make jokes all the time. Like once they had a frat house game night and asked if I wanted to host twister. I’m fine with jokes like that.” And afterwards I was confronted by many people trying to tell me that asking that question was out of line. As opposed to what? Asking about his catheter, like everyone else?? I think he was more comfortable talking about jokes about the disabled than he was talking about how he can have sex in front of Highschool students... I just had to put that out there. If someone just ASKS about jokes I don’t think it’s reasonable to shout hearsay.

I wear glasses and can't see a thing without them and people can't seem to get that snatching them off my face isn't funny. When I say I can't see without I *can't see anything without them. Just blur. Nothing more. Past my upper wrist is blur* and if I'm talking about my sight and you make a good joke I'm cool with it but if like we're just hanging out and you make a joke I just feel uncomfortable and I'd most likely leave. I find the first one closer to bullying than a joke and the second one is just... there's a time and place for everything and nobody that I meet seems to get it right Oh almost forgot I'm also black and almost every white person meet (me meeting a white person is rare since my community is mostly black so I'm not saying whites are racist or anything) makes a black joke and that is no black joke is anywhere near funny. Especially when they call me things like crow and then get offended when I get upset and show it by calling them snowball. Like boi no... you gotta find the line between funny and mean. And for me that line is pretty thick so it ain't that hard

Heh. I'm blonde and have always loved blonde jokes. I have quite the collection. A blind guy walks into a bar, sits down on a stool and says "Hey! Want to hear a blonde joke?" The bartender says "I don't know if that's a good idea. See, I'm blonde and the guy next to you is blonde and he's a professional wrestler. Then there is the guy over in the corner, he works with the mafia. He's blonde. You still want to tell your blonde joke?" The blind guy shakes his head. "Nah. I don't want to explain it three times."

As a native American i dont like drunk jokes, but i dont care if non natives wear Pocahontas/indian/native costumes for Halloween.
Haykey (4 months ago)
Im late to the party but I’m short and I make so many jokes about it, my old manager used to even call me “shorty” and that was fine when he use it. Then others started using “shorty” at my expense which was definitely bullying. My line is drawn when they keep dragging it on. no matter how funny the joke is they play on it and drag it out rather than just laughing and moving on. It becomes really immature and it stops being funny really fast especially when someone repeats the same thing over and over.

its kinda fucked up but i had a rough childhood and my close friends know that but i deal with it the same way you do, with comedy. I always joke that i have daddy issues and make cutting jokes with my friends (despite all the scars on my arms) but it really just depends, like my friends make jokes that i think are very funny but its very awkward when someone new comes in and thinks its ok to start saying stuff like when i do something clumsy "aww did your dad hit you too hard in the head" and we all just look at him like wtf
Laura Sheldon (4 months ago)
I feel you. I have hearing problems problems. (I'm not deaf). But I joke about it a lot and my friends too. But when people try to mock me that we're it draws the line. I had people talk very quiet well I was sitting next to me and laughing at me because I couldn't hear anything they were saying.

I alway joke about what a klutz I am and so does my family. I have Touretts Syndrome which means I am slightly on the Autism Spectrum, and I don't appreciate jokes about it at all. I'm gay and like blind jokes for you some are funny and I can appreciate them, while others just cross the line and make me uncomfortable.

I'm a trans person and I really love most jokes. Like the "did you assume my gender" and "I identify as..." but really the line is where you use it to make fun of me of invalidate trans people. But like it's really funny to make trans jokes... I do get strange looks from strangers though...

I dont have a disability. However, my father committed suicide when I was 6 years old, and my mother, grandma, and I both walked in and found him (he shot himself) so it was a pretty gruesome scene. I'm 23 now and that image is still burned into my head. I love humor and I can take alot of sick and crude jokes, but suicide jokes make me cringe. Sometimes I ignore it, but if it crosses the line, I will speak up

I think I already made a comment about this a while ago but I forgot so I’m saying it anyways. I joke about how pale I am with my friends. I’m extremely white and pale and the funniest part about that is that I live in one of the sunniest states ever and was born there but I have never had a tan. 😂
KokoAneko (5 months ago)
I completely agree with this... I am not blind, but I am non-binary. Most people make fun of non-binary people saying "I identify as a *blank* ". Some people say this as a joke (joking with me) and some people say it bullying me and others (joking about me). I really love making jokes like "I identify as a unicorn" but sometimes people joke about me to others and it really sucks
Gio Trevi (5 months ago)
This is not a joke but I was thinking about this the other day. I live in Paris and everybody is always so busy and in a hurry that they all sport bitch resting face all the time. It’s annoying cause you never know if they’re enjoying talking to me or just wishing me to shut up. All these sad and pissed faces are not funny. You’re a sunny person that enjoys laughing all the time, you’re lucky you don’t have to stand pissed crowds all the time!

I have schizophrenia and bipolar and I don't find mental illness jokes ever funny unless it's a friend making a joke to me who shares my diagnosis.
TeddySparkles20 (6 months ago)
The thing that I can't stand when people make blind jokes is when they say "I wish I was blind because..." And they state something that they think is a blind privilege such as, "so I can have a guide dog to take everywhere" or "so I can get that much attention". I feel like it doesn't piss most people off like it does for me, but that's what ticks me off.

one of my classmates is often making jokes about me..but they are like "i really want another donut but i dont wanna get fat like that guy from another class. he looks just like you" and when i say to het that that was rude she says "oh im just joking" this when shes trying to hurt my feelings and say that its a joke thats really rude and insulting on my opinion. you make a really good point about crossing the line. ilt Molly <3

I make jokes about me usually being the one with my head in the clouds or me not being up-to-date with popular things. I also make jokes about my long arms and legs, as well as my double-jointed elbows and fingers. However, I am often overly sensitive, so if you know me and I have gotten upset about something related to these things, don't worry!

no I'm not blind I think some blind jokes are pretty funny actually so I think the line is don't make them exclude anyone who is blind
Kat Cooper-Parker (6 months ago)
I don't know quite how to define my line. I have OCD and I think my line is that I don't like people making jokes if they don't understand what OCD is. Like for example my friends got my some hand sanitizer as a joke present on Christmas, and I was fine with it because my particular OCD basically revolves around a fear of germs. They've taken the time to understand what my issue is. I don't like jokes that are like 'oh I'm so OCD I'm such a neat freak' or 'it should be CDO because it's in alphabetical order' or 'OCD stands for Obsessive Coffee Disorder'. I don't like them because they haven't taken the time to understand what OCD is and how those sort of jokes can lead to people with OCD not being taken seriously.
