Why hate comic sans?

I thought it was really hilarious in “The History of Typography” video when Ben Barrett-Forrest completely disacknowledged Comic Sans as a font. We always see jokes about it, so I decided to research why it is so disliked. Turns out, even the creator, Vincent Connare has only used it once. It was created on a whim while he was on the typography at Microsoft and was not intended for implementation. Its irregularities supposedly make it difficult to read. For example, the “b” and “p” are not exact reflections of one another. However, some argue that there are benefits to this. Those who are dyslexic actually find it easier to read when there are irregularities. I think in conclusion, comic sans should be given more credit.
