Overview

#TheDailyShowGoneTooFar is a hashtag protest started by One Direction fans against Comedy Central's late-night TV talk show following the broadcast of a satirical news segment implicating the popular British boy band with global terrorism.

Background

On September 23rd, 2014, The Daily Show aired a segment in which they poked fun at the frequent splintering of terrorist groups into smaller, potentially more violent groups. During the segment Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams says:

"Just as you were talking, a new terrorist group formed, with one member each from ISIS, al-Nusra, Al Qaeda, Hamas, One Direction and the Zetas drug cartel."




Many One Direction fans interpreted[1] this as an insult directed at One Direction member Zayn Malik, who is of Pakistani descent.

Notable Developments

    Assuming that I could care about the oppinions of one direction fans, I would give them the same answer that was presented to the #cancelcolbert folk: It's satire, it's not meant to be taken seriously, get over it and put your hashtags away.

  • Dralemeres - 9 years ago

    …wow….1D fans are allows to stay up late enough to watch the daily show?

    Plus, generic shock and suprise about how sensitive they are when this entire show's format is to take news, and use it as a springboard for making topical and nostalgia based jokes for the purposes of satire. I don't see why their precious band is in anyway more sacred than anything else (plus, I am fairly sure they have made jokes about the pope on that show….so yeah).

    And it is was not even a joke that was really good enough to get angry over. It was a one off line from the looks of it. Comeback to me when they went on a 5 minute skit where they tried to prove a conspiracy where 1D was responsible for the creation of ISIS, assassinated Kennedy, and convinced Caesar that it was not a good day to call in sick.

    You see guys, I always hear people ''this generation is stupid! ours was not like that!'' Actually, no. Both generations sucked. It is just that in this modern generation people can express their stupidity more freely than the older generation with the advance of God damn so called ''social media''.

    What a bunch of God damn idiot fan-girls, they make me sick. Time to play some video games to wash the bad taste…

    I kind of agree that 1D fans have reacted too strongly to this but they have a point.

    But it's ridiculous regarding a member of a Boy Band to many groups of people who will slaughter your family if you don't comply with them. But you people who are reacting very strongly and thinking of hurting some tweens and teens over their opinions of their favorite things, you are making yourselves the bad guys.

    Because you would feel offended if I do nasty stuff to your favorite things.

    • The Cake Is A Spy - 9 years ago

      The daily show is comedy/satire. They were not, for a moment, serious in their comparison of a boy band to a terrorist group. You are supposed to laugh at it for the very fact that it is hyperbolic and absurd. That's why their reaction is so ridiculous; it comes though a complete lack of a sense of humor.

      Yeah, it is ridiculous to compare a member of a boy band to terrorists. Which is why the Daily Show didn't do that. The point of the joke wasn't to say boy bands are bad. It was a one-of-these-things-is-not-like-the-other joke. It's an incongruity joke. The writers were probably thinking "OK, lets make this fake terrorist group, and for humor, we'll have one unexpected member. What's a good, wholesome, inoffensive group? I know! Boy bands! Who's popular right now? One Direction? OK!"

    Did anyone else notice that they all jumped to the conclusion that Zayne, the Pakistani member of One Direction was the target of the joke. That's pretty racist.

    Being a terrorist isn't based on race, ethnicity or nationality, the Irish or English ones could be just as likely as the Pakistani kid to join a terrorist organisation. I think someone who actually uses hashtags should start the hashtag, One Direction Fans Have Gone Too Far. Feel free to use that in the correct formatting for that twitter thing.

    At first I thought that TDS did something wrong, then I remembered it was a comedy show and people nowadays seem to have a very loose grasp on what comedy means.

    Okay, seriously, Molly, STOP ADDING HASHTAGS.

    A hashtag is not a meme. Granted, there have absolutely been memetic hashtag campaigns. But really ask yourself, does this look significant?

    Know Your Meme has really been exploding lately due to its lack of bias and its integrity, something that`s been dying away lately. Please, please, please, for the love of fuck don`t damage this newfound respect just because you have an unnatural obsession with documenting every sneeze and twitch of the eye that comes out of tumblr and twitter. I`m not sure how you got to be a mod but I sure as hell wouldn`t abuse the privilege.

    With love,

    Is this serious? I can sort of understand the Colbert one from a few months back, since I've known for years that stupid people can't detect sarcasm, but this is ridiculous. I'm 25, which is probably about 10-15 years younger than anyone who writes the jokes for the Daily Show, and I had no idea that one of the guys from One Direction was Pakistani (I just assumed that, like most boy bands, they were a group of 4-6 young white guys, only British) until I read this article today, so I doubt they knew. Do these dumb kids really think that the Daily Show is purposely trying to say this guy is a terrorist? Do they really not get that it was just a one-off joke about One Direction being a group of people awful enough to hyperbolically be compared to terrorists? This is so stupid it actually makes me slightly angry…
