Could Tropic Thunder be made today?

I think Stiller mentioned this himself recently as well didn't he? Also Steve Carrell questioned whether they could even make the Office these days since Michael Scott was such a culturally insensitive character.
I think they can still get away with it but probably not as mainstream or successful as before. It's worth noting that South Park & Always Sunny are still going pretty strong.

Could it be made? Absolutely. Would it be embraced by the "**** your feelings" crowd, and vilified by the social justice crowd? I'd put money on it.

No, it couldn't get made today; because RDJ gets fifty million per picture now and Tom Cruise doesn't need to rehabilitate his image no more.
(You could probably still do a comedy w/blackface, though).
