According to the folks at Deadline, the comedian started out just fine as he took no prisoners with his line of jokes. But as he continued controversy reared its head with C.K. comparing the two sides in the Israel-Palestine conflict to his bickering children.
From there, the entertainer went into his “mildly racist” attitudes regarding his thoughts on a white male wearing a hoodie versus a black male wearing a hoodie. By the time he finished, C.K. went in with a lengthy bit about the neighborhood pedophile that could strike a nerve among those who were OK with his earlier jokes. Deadline referenced one point in the monologue in which C.K. compared the joy of eating his favorite candy (Mounds bars) to what sex must be like for a child molester.
Leading up to Saturday’s finale, a promo featuring C.K. and Kate McKinnon had her saying that the season closer would be C.K.’s final SNL appearance. From the looks of it, C.K. seemed surprise by McKinnon’s revelation.
So what say you? Did C.K. go too far with his monologue or was it another case of the genuine satire that SNL has become known for over its 40 years on the air?
