Saturday Night Live joined the ranks of entertainment programs being called out for not commenting on sexual harassment allegations against former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
Social media users skewered the decades old live sketch comedy show, with many highlighting the programs hypocrisy in not going after one of Hollywood’s biggest players.
‘Why didn’t big mouth Michael Che’ say anything about Harvey Weinstein on SNL “Weekend Update”? He’s got so much opinion about everything else,’ Pastor Darrell Scott asked contentiously.
Like most people, I haven’t watched SNL in years. It was always lefty and always harsher on Republicans, but that didn’t turn me off. I stopped watching because it stopped being funny. When I could watch the entire show and maybe chuckle twice, it just wasn’t worth the time investment anymore.
But now SNL is just yet another leftist propaganda show. Whatever your politics, the Weinstein story is a mine of comedy gold if someone is willing to put in a piece of dynamite. SNL’s unwillingness to do so just confirms what we all already knew… the writers’ politics trumped their commitment to their comedic craft long ago.
