Saturday Night Light has been relentless in slamming President Trump. And they continued on that path last night. They did; however, publicly shame Harvey Weinstein and it was a lukewarm roasting. It will be interesting to see if they step up their skits or if last night was a one time flash in the pan.
SNL first started with a skit that had a panel of three starlets…one from Hollywood of old and two who represented today’s Holllywood actresses. The starlet from the olden days quipped: “Have I ever been sexually harassed? Good Friday, where do you want me to start…Women being harassed is Hollywood, alright?” Watch the video below:
The second slam of Weinstein came during the Weekend Update portion of the show. Jost began with: “Apple has announced that it will add hundreds of new emojis to its iOS system including a person at a spa, a vomiting face, and a shushing finger…finally giving emoji fans the ability to describe what it was like to work for Harvey Weinstein.” Then after saying Weinstein was headed to rehab, Jost said: “He doesn’t need sex rehab. He needs a specialized facility where there are no women, no contact with the outside world, metal bars and it’s a prison.” Saturday Night Live’s Twitter Account barely mentioned the skits…almost like they are sparing Harvey and don’t want it advertised. This was the only tweet about it:

Also during the Weekend Update, Che said: “You assaulted dozens of women ― that’s not a mistake, that’s a full season of ‘Law and Order…your name’s a verb now dude, as in, ‘If this guy tries to Weinstein me, I’m going to cut off his little Harvey'”.
It was interesting to see SNL take on Weinstein…do you think they will continue or was this a one time thing? Drop your comment below and let us know.
