The Rock hosted SNL this past weekend and brought the controversy with one of his sketches that involved a "child-molesting robot." Although I did see some people saying it was the best sketch of the night (which I absolutely do not understand), most people were furious:
Can somebody tell snl writers that child molester jokes still aren't funny?— Amanda J. Pleasant (@PlainJane__21) May 21, 2017
In my opinion, this is way too serious a matter to be joked about. Television does influence what people talk and joke about, so they should set a good example on talking about such serious issues. Political talk is one thing, but geez, SNL, what were you thinking with this one?
Watch the sketch in question below (and note the understandably hesitant laughter of the audience...)
