As soon as Tom Segura's latest comedy special hit Netflix, folks in South Louisiana got whipped into a fury over some disparaging remarks he made about Cajuns. Segura suggests "we build a wall" around Louisiana to shut out the "inbred" Cajun people who live there, among other things. Recently Segura gave his thoughts about the Louisiana backlash on "Your Mom's House Podcast" and clears up some misunderstandings.

In this video, Segura speaks with Christina P about the backlash from Louisianians about his "jokes" about Cajuns. Segura says his comments have nothing to do with anyone he met while in Lafayette doing a show. He claims it's about someone he met from Louisiana in while in Kansas City.

The audio he and Christina P are referencing is from KPEL's "Offsides" show.

So, he made his comments about Cajuns without really knowing what the hell he's talking about. Shocker. He met some guy at a meet and greet in Kansas City from Louisiana, and just decided to generalize all of us. The guy he met may not have even been Cajun, but to Segura, anyone from Louisiana is Cajun.

I've seen the comments about Cajuns he made, and personally I wasn't offended. It wasn't funny either, but neither is his Netflix special. Hey, he can have his opinion about Cajuns, and I can have my opinion about his "comedy" right?

He's also obviously milking this "controversy" to get attention for his mediocre Netflix special as well.
