Despite our woke betters’ best efforts, “Joker” had a pretty good weekend at the box office. They’re gonna have to come up with something really major to take down “Joker,” and this CNN scoop might just be the thing to do it:

CNN’s Leah Asmelash writes:

Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, is probably making money off the song’s use in the movie, too.

It’s unclear exactly how much Glitter could make, but attorney John Seay, who specializes in entertainment law, broke down the general process.

Regardless, Glitter is making money, Seay said. And the amount could be in the six figures range.

It’s not just about the money, though. Some are questioning the morality of including the song and bringing profit to a convicted child sex offender.

Rahul Kohli, a British actor best known for playing Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti in The CW’s “iZombie,” said on Twitter that he enjoyed the movie, but he also expressed that many might feel some discomfort at the song choice.

Oh, OK.

Seriously. Are we really gonna do this?

A lot of musicians (and actors! Directors! Producers!) have done some pretty terrible things. Are we gonna ban their music from all movies now? Or just from the movies that the Wokeness Brigade have deemed problematic?

Thing is, CNN’s far from alone in their desperation:

It’s come under fire? Or the media have tried to start a fire?

What a dumb time to be alive.

Count on it.
