Saturday Night Live Slammed for “Racist” Aer Lingus Skit

Aer Lingus sounds a lot like a certain sex act.

This was the initial premise of a sketch on Saturday Night Live that closed out a November 2017 episode hosted by actress Saoirse Ronan.

It featured the young star as a flight attendant named Colleen, wearing a green uniform, rocking a bouffant bob hairstyle… and making jokes about Irish stereotypes such as potatoes and dogs.

Watch the sketch below and then check out the strong reaction on Twitter…

Was the airline trying to sound like Donald Trump? Why would it do that?!? How weird and random.

3. Major Disappointment

Major disappointment
The harshest critiques were saved for Ronan, and came from other Irish citizens or Irish-Americans who were upset she openly embraced such silly generalizations about the country.

4. The Accents ARE Funny

The accents are funny
You have to admit that, right? But perhaps not enough to base an entire sketch around.

5. Let’s Be Honest…

Lets be honest
… the cunnilingus part wasn’t very funny, either. It isn’t exactly original.

6. Come On, SNL

Come on snl
We expect more from you! (Although some folks who haven’t been a fan since the Bill Murray days might not.)

Saturday Night Live Airs Controversial Kellyanne Conway Skit: Watch!

Were you able to catch Saturday Night Live last night? If not, then boy, you sure are in for a treat right now …

This current season of SNL has gotten a whole lot of mileage out of Donald Trump and all of his countless atrocities, including the people he's hired to work in the White House.

And one of those people is the utterly ridiculous Kellyanne Conway, played on the show by the extremely lovely, very hilarious Kate McKinnon.

But last night, there was a Fatal Attraction-esque skit featuring McKinnon's Kellyanne. And according to some people, it went way too far.

In the skit, CNN's Jake Tapper went home to his apartment to find Kellyanne, looking mighty unhinged in some lingerie.

Poor Kellyanne was just so very, very desperate for Jake to put her back on the news, even after that "little ethics violation" that occurred when she tried to sell Ivanka Trump's clothing during an interview.

So desperate that, at one point, she held a knife to his throat.

It was pretty intense, but also pretty funny. But a lot of viewers didn't see it that way.

As one person tweeted, "SNL just gave a gift to the White House with this sexist, unfunny Kellyanne Conway skit."

Another wrote "As much as I loathe Kellyanne, this highly sexualized SNL version of her gives me the icks."

Was the skit funny? Sexist? Extreme?
