Throughout the course of its unprecedented
12 season run, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has become beloved worldwide
for its trademark black humour and the increasingly depraved behaviour of its
morally bankrupt characters.
Revolving around a gang of
narcissistic degenerates that try (and usually fail) to run Paddy’s Irish Pub, Philadelphia’s
worst bar, It’s Always Sunny has never been reluctant to find the humour in
some of the darkest topics imaginable. We've had Nazis, terrorism and incest to
name but a few.
This black humour however, whilst
incredibly funny for fans of the show, has been known to court controversy from
time to time, with some arguing that in places the show has gone too far.
Although this is a valid criticism,
many would argue that one of the main points of the show is that, especially
for the most controversial topics, the fact a gang of absolute degenerates are horrified
by the actions of their fellow characters only goes to emphasise how offensive these actions are.
So with It’s Always Sunny’s
long-awaited 13th season nearly upon us. It's a good time to take a look back at
their most controversial moments so far.
