That's not a retcon. They're not saying it didn't happen. It's just one of his possible origins. Maybe he was a gangster, maybe he was a comedian. Nobody knows. Not even Joker. He remembers his past differently all the time.

A Joker WITHOUT a certain origin is so much more intimidating IMHO.
Amen to that
