Take my aging comedian, please!

In a recent interview, Seinfeld complained that he doesn't play colleges because they're all too PC. And I'm not sure he's completely wrong. And then he repeated the joke that he said people were needlessly offended by.
Seems he observed that kids these days are always on their smart phones scrolling through their friends like a gay french king.
Is it maybe possible that they're offended by how incredibly lame that joke is? "How about these phones these days? All these kids with the texting and the downloading! And gays! Do they even know how to wrist?" 
I'm just saying that when you're delivering humor as cutting edge and original as the opening act at a Poconos Indian Casino, then you don't get to be surprised when the only people listening are people with no sense of humor. To meet dated humor with dated humor, what's the deal with your being a whiny twat?
