I think we can all recognize that the “it’s a joke excuse” is the most dismissive, self-righteous loophole, created by those who refuse to examine their power, and assume they have not only the right to say whatever they want to people, but the right to control how other people react to what they have said.
Also with a certain amount of resonance – my own less thoughtful, but perhaps more to the point version
“Its just a joke – the excuse used by hoofwankingbunglecunts all over the planet”
