Dunkleman, of course, responded by pretending to take the high road, but he still managed to take some equally flat digs at Secreast!
People really came to my defense, which is a satisfying thing. But it was a joke. Well, it was an attempt at a joke. But unfortunately for Ryan, instead of a laugh, he got applause. That’s never really been his strong suit. But it was a joke, and whether it was mean-spirited or not is irrelevant. A joke’s a joke; you can either take it or you can’t. And quite honestly, once you’ve had Jimmy Kimmel say in a monologue that you should be punched in the face, and at this point you’d probably be receptive to a knife in the gut, I think what Seacrest said was pretty tame.
We think that congratulations are in order to both of them!
We can all agree that neither are particularly funny!
