Jay Leno: ‘College Kids Now Are So Politically Correct’

Jay Leno returned to late night last night to chat with Seth Meyers, and during their discussion Leno talked about about the rise of political correctness on college campuses.

Meyers asked Leno how colleges have changed since he played them decades ago. Leno said, “College kids now are so politically correct.”

He gave an example of a Tonight Show intern who said he sounded racist for not liking Mexican food. Leno said, “Being anti-guacamole is not racist, okay? You have no idea what racism is. That’s not racism, you idiot, you moron!”

Leno isn’t the first comedian to raise the issue about how sensitive college students are. Chris Rock said months ago he’s stopped playing colleges because of how politically correct they are now, and Bill Maher has talked quite a lot about how PC the culture has become.
