Chris Dangerfield on Dapper Laughs: victim of jealousy?

"Look, I don't give a shit about the bullshit personal private greedy agendas of these liberal f***s who draw arbitrary lines to serve their own agendas - and that's what they've done. That's why they're not talking about Russell Brand, Doug Stanhope, Bill Burr. But Dapper Laughs - some working class shitbag from nowhere who has said a couple of pretty unfunny things - he's a target. He hasn't said anything anywhere near as 'bad' as any of that other lot. I don't care what they say, myself. I love it. But, if you look at the criteria these people have used when talking about Dapper Laughs, then these people - Brand, Stanhope, Burr - are far 'worse'. It's all bullshit."
