According to TMZ, she also stated that Rife does not appear to be someone who will look back on his own actions, citing the way he handled criticism over a domestic abuse joke he made during his Netflix special.

Hedaya believes he needs to check himself, observe why he feels so aggressive toward women and children, and then attempt to heal himself once he determines the root cause.

"You have to be yourself and not worry about offending a certain amount of people," Rife said. "You might miss out on a joke that you're worried might offend somebody, but might make you a million new fans. You don't know what people are into, and that's why you have to go out there and do your comedy and just lay it all out there vulnerably to find your audience."

He noted that one has to be "willing to be vulnerable and do the jokes you want to tell in your voice, in your comedy, to figure out who likes your comedy."
