Saturday Night Live sucks, in my opinion. The show’s producers just can’t seem to get it right. Either they skip over topics like Harvey Weinstein’s abuse of women, or they make asinine jokes about horrific events of the past. For example, last night on SNL, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Larry David made a joke about the Holocaust. The joke has social media on fire Sunday as people are very angry, rightfully so.
“I’ve always been obsessed with women, and I’ve often wondered if I’d grown up in Poland when Hitler came to power and was sent to a concentration camp, would I be checking women out in the camp? I think I would,” said David during his show opener. “However, there are no good opening lines in a concentration camp.”
Immediately following David’s awful joke, Twitter was lit up with outrage. People thought the joke was done in poor taste considering the treatment women faced in the concentration camps.
David followed up by touching upon a topic SNL has long ignored: Harvey Weinstein.
David stated that he felt Weinstein was giving other Jewish guys a bad rap. He suggested that “a very disturbing pattern” of Jewish predators was emerging in Hollywood. “Not all but many of them are Jews,” he said in reference to allegations against producers Harvey Weinstein, Brett Ratner and others accused of sexual assault.
I don’t like when Jews are in the headlines for notorious reasons. I want ‘Einstein discovers the theory of relativity,’ ‘Salk cures polio.’ What I don’t want? ‘Weinstein took it out.’ ”
“I consistently strive to be a good Jewish representative,” he continued. “When people see me I want them to say, ‘Oh, there goes a fine Jew for you!'”
