  1. making fun is easy, it get's laughs depending on the audience and very tempting to the mediocre comedian. it's like working blue. it's easy too.

  2. Que fragile racist trump supporters crying about 'CaNcEl CuLtUrE' and forgetting that freedom of speech does not mean freedom of consequences from a private entertainment industry.

  3. Shouldn't cost his job but…com on. That podcast was painfully unfunny. Where are the jokes? setup? timing? delivery? Where is the boundary-pushing? It's NOT political correctness to criticize him. We don't have to find every dumb bit funny to be "edgy." If you use racial slurs for cheap laughs, you are gonna get called out. The C word is just as destructive as the N word to your career. Lesson learnt.

  4. Welp, I'm over SNL. They fired the funniest audition so the person they hire now can only be second best. They were jokes attempting to make some one laugh. Racism is intent not just vocabulary

  5. I will never watch again. Lorne Michaels built his name on pushing barriers. Now….what we’re too sensitive……screw him and his show. Liberal Hollywood freakin sucks. Bunch of sissy’s. Who got offended……seriously who the F was offended? That’s network liberal tv for ya. Netflix and Hulu for me.

  6. Here's a thought, calling the Chinese "Ch*nk" is like calling the African Americans the "N" word… now, do you get it why it's offensive?

  7. Excellent! He's not even funny. Did any of you moaners even watch the video? He clearly has no qualms with doing the accents and belittling the simplifying the culture,. Which would be fine if you could be legitimately funny and clever about it. But he's not. This inbred man and his dumb racist bro just sat there making fun of another culture without any actual commentary or wit. They showed that deep-down they're just dismissive, simple-minded, uncultured, and unfunny. LMAO this will embarrass that dork for the rest of his life. Also a big LMAO at you emotionally-undeveloped right-wing nuts whining over the "left" or the "SJWs" to dismiss cruelty and because you recognize your own ignorance in him. If you support him you've got some growing up to do.

  8. I detest NBC does not report on what was actually said here, and instead just 'reports' on what to feel about it via reactions. If you're going to report on this, you at least need to tell his side of the story and say what he said.

  9. Why can't the news networks ever show the actual video of what was being said so we can judge for ourselves if it's racist or not rather than just saying look at this racist who got fired for being a bigot. Everyone is so afraid of being accused of anything these days companies are just automatically firing ppl rather then looking into it and people's lives are being destroyed for no reason. Thanks NBC for contributing to this problem jumping on it making it worse before actually doing any research or if you have willfully hiding it because you know ppl will say it's no big deal. I don't like being told what to think.

  10. Will NBC & SNL disavow all the other 'racist' & 'bigoted' things that they've shown on their network & shows over the years? If they really want to show how WOKE they are they should stop profiting from those productions & donate the profits they made from them. Otherwise they're hypocrites.
