Online controversy over 20-year-old outtakes from ALF where television's onetime favorite alien puppet uses the N word? Who cares, asks the show's producer? After all, those were simpler times...
TMZ has a great defense for the outtakes from Steve Lamar, the show's former associate producer:
You're talking about 20 years ago when the world was not so ridiculously PC. Anyone that's offended needs to lighten up already.
On the one hand, he's not wrong about the need to lighten up. On the other hand, I'm not sure "Hey, you're being ridiculously PC" is going to help anyone who's upset calm down. One hand giveth, the other hand slaps you in the face, it seems.
