I have not seen the show... but anytime I hear "lighten up" it reminds of bullies telling people to lighten up. If someone didn't like The Book of Mormon, I would not think of telling them to lighten up... I would just conclude that type of humor wasn't for them. When someone says "lighten up" it is usually because they know "the joke" was in bad taste, or a passive aggressive attack on a person, group, or belief, but do not want to admit it.
