Louis CK gave a predictably polite, sensitive monologue yesterday on the closing night of SNL's 40th season—making light of racism, child molestation, and the Israel-Palestine conflict. "Child molesters are very tenacious people," CNN quotes him as saying. "From their point of view, it must be amazing to risk so much!" He went on to describe himself as suffering from "mild racism," E! Online reports: "If I go to a pizza place I've never been to before and it's run by four black women, I'll go, 'Hmm,'" he said.
And he compared himself to America while his daughters, always fighting, are like Israel and Palestine. The audience appeared shocked at times, while Twitter seems divided and some media critics (try Decider and Deadline) are a bit ruffled. "It's my last show probably," quipped the comic actor, People reports. (Click for 10 more SNL scandals.)
