Julia Louis-Dreyfus is not in agreement with her former Seinfeld co-star.

I don’t know how else to say it.” She agreed that looking back on shows from 30 years ago through today’s lens, “you might find bits and pieces that don’t age well.” “I think to have an antenna about sensitivities is not a bad thing.

It doesn’t mean that all comedy goes out the window as a result,” she went on to say. “My feeling about all of it is that political correctness, insofar as it equates to tolerance, is obviously fantastic.

And of course I reserve the right to boo anyone who says anything that offends me, while also respecting their right to free speech, right?” she added in a follow-up interview.
