  • It's how the joke is presented. If you say something straight up without thinking it can nasty and it offensive where as if you think about it first and make it funny people laugh even when they don't want to becuase it's a good joke regarding the situation like how Ricky gervais does jokes

  • In my opinion they’re rarely funny and they’re potentially offensive. There is so much stuff in the world that is actually funny. Why do we need to turn serious, devastating, heartbreaking situations into jokes?

  • Ya know, it really depends on the joke. Some factors are important to be funny: The joke can't be too soon after the event, the joke can't be bigotted (unless all parties are cool, then it's just called offensive humor), it can't be about anything that is sensitive to your audience

  • My friend was sexually assaulted by another former friend of ours, and me and him always joke about it every time we get the opportunity. Joking about a difficult or serious subject is a way to bring it down to our level and make it easier to grasp. Showing the absurdity in a situation like a terrorist attack is a way to make the issue easier to come to accept and come to terms with, which can then make it easier for us to find solutions to a problem since we can think about it on our own terms.

  • Often funny. The thing with jokes is that the one who made it rarely express his own opinion. It's just a joke. There's nothing offensive.

    • I think that since you feel guilty about it, your amusement at pain might be a coping mechanism to try to dissolve the empathetic pain

    • Wow well that actually might be it and I can’t deal with guilt and I don’t want to hurt anyone

  • people don't seem to care if its been years after the fact

    • I'm sure all the conservatives were mourning when they were making fun of "liberal trendies" who died at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

    • @Armourdillo then they aren't really joking. They have bad intentions. A joke is only to make people laugh. Not to hurt people

  • It depends on the situation it pertains to.

  • You have to consider the audience. There was a prominent case where some teens had murdered their parents and I joked to a co-worker that they should ask for clemency since they were orphans. It turned out he knew the parents and he was not amused.

  • It's usually insensitive and done for edgy humour, I don't find it funny in most cases.

    That being said, they can make the jokes all they want, it just makes them look like a dick to me. It's less offensive and more annoying, but nothing is "wrong" with it, it's in their right.

  • Sometimes creating humor from a dreadful situation can be cathartic. recently I said to a widow, “I’m so sorry for your loss” her response to me was “I didn’t lose him, I know exactly where he is” that immediately lightened the mood.

    but
    top comedians have found hilarious gold in such news where no one is actually really hurt = exceptions abound
