Pete Davidson made quite an impression during Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update with his joke comparing R. Kelly with the support of the Catholic Church.
SNL began with a parody of the R. Kelly and Gayle King interview with Leslie Jones as King and Kenan Thompson hilarious with Kelly. The sketch was well received when Thompson hit a homerun with his view of Kelly’s constant confusion and bizarre misunderstandings during the interview. He even has ‘Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!’ Announced, initially to believe a houseplant that it was a camera.
While the audience laughed with the cold open, they had a different tone in the controversial jokes of Davidson during Weekend Update. Did Davidson finally make the audience laugh?
Davidson was there to discuss the controversy surrounding R. Kelly and Michael Jackson
Davidson launched his discussion in which he explained how terrible R. Kelly is and that he should go to prison forever. “But if you support the Catholic Church,” Davidson begins. “Is not that the same as being a R. Kelly fan?
Jost’s eyes scanned the crowd as people screamed angrily and moaning. People laugh a few times, but the public seems to be particularly dissatisfied. Davidson laughs: “I do not really see the difference: only someone’s music is considerably better.” Okay, there is laughter from the audience.
Davidson goes on to say that his mother told him she was going to Mass. So he said, “Okay, I’m going to listen to the Ignition remix.” This generates big laughs from the audience.
Davidson dives in deeper
He adds that everyone is angry about people like Kelly and Michael Jackson because they have made great music. “If I found out that Macklemore did strange things, I would like to free up space on my iPhone.” Davidson says, “People ask,” how can you listen to that music after what he did? “” He laughs, “Headphones?” More laughs.
Davidson says that although it can be difficult to stop listening to music, it is better to admit what they did first. “You can buy a Mustang, but say,” Henry Ford hated the Jews, “as you turn around. The complete sentence should be: ‘Mark Walberg beat up an old Asian guy, but I would like a ticket for Daddy’s Home 3.’ “
This is when he really brings it home
Davidson says he will not mind if he sees another Kevin Spacey movie. “But if the CEO of Swisher Sweets turns out to be a cannibal, I can not just change my whole life!”
He offers a plan: to donate $ 1 to charity every time you listen to a song or watch a film of an accused serial predator. “I already donated $ 142 and that alone is the remix of the ignition alone.”
When Jost Davidson asks if there is anything he would like to address. He really scores very well with this joke. Davidson says that people have a strange fascination for his age difference with the new girlfriend Kate Beckinsale. He adds that he is new to this. But people who have questions about people with large age differences should ask Leonardo DiCaprio, Jason Statham, Michael Douglas, Richard Gere, Larry King, Larry King, Larry King … the list seems endless. Meanwhile, the crowd shouts approval and laughter. Micropoint.
