Andrew Schulz Controversies
The "Merchant of Death" Stir
One of Andrew Schulz's most talked-about moments happened when he questioned the decision to release "The Merchant of Death" to bring back Brittney Griner, leaving Paul Whelan behind.
This statement didn't sit well with people from both sides of the political spectrum, as it seemed like Schulz was making light of a serious matter. Despite the backlash, Andrew stood by his comments, arguing that comedy has a special way of bringing attention to important issues and sparking meaningful debates.
The NELK "Full Send" Podcast Drama
Andrew Schulz recently made headlines again as a guest on the NELK podcast, "Full Send." The episode took an unexpected turn, leading to it being put on hold indefinitely. According to John Shahidi of Happy Dad, it was co-host Steiny who opposed airing the episode after a heated argument with Schulz.
However, there's a claim suggesting that Schulz himself requested the episode's removal. It appears that the lively, edgy humor of NELK clashed with the stand-up comic's no-nonsense humor. Comedy sure knows how to stir up a mix of emotions!
