If you didn’t like this weekend’s SNL, with host Jamie Foxx, because the political cold open was too tame, that’s understandable. Or if you thought “Bitch, What’s the Answer?” could have used a rewrite or 17 and the Alex Cross/Madea spoof was dated, makes sense. After an underwhelming first half, I thought the episode rebounded nicely in the second, with “Maine Justice,” “Swarovski Crystals,” and “Dylan McDermott or Dermot Mulroney” ranking among the season’s best sketches. But many didn’t make it that far; thousands didn’t even make it past the monologue, if Twitter’s to be believed. How come? Well, to paraphrase, “Most. Racist. Episode. Ever.”
Oh boy. According to the 950:
Singer/actor Jamie Foxx hosted SNL this weekend, and his comments were racially-charged from the outset…Foxx is the man who recently told us that we should “honor” our “lord and savior” Barack Obama. “I’m dressed in all black, cause it’s good to be black. Black is the new white!” Foxx said. (Via)
The article then goes on to quote Foxx’s monologue, which, for those who didn’t watch, went like, “I got a new movie coming out, Django, check it out…Django Unchained, I play a slave. How black is that? In the movie, I have to wear chains. How whack is that? But don’t be worried about it, because I get out [of] the chains, I save my wife, and I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that? And how black is that?”
Very, and Django is going to be the sh*t. Just don’t tell that to any of these idiots.
I watch SNL every week, have done it since the Belucci years, but last nights show was the worst ever. What a disgusting racial rant againt whites last night. Cool to be black ?? Fool I say.
I will never ever watch SNL again! I used to really like J.F, but he has become such a racist piece of crap! I cannot believe his opening monologue was allowed!
worst SNL since I started watching in 1976
the opening racist monologue with the obvious canned laughter makes me think the crowd wished they could turn off the show like I did. Lorne Michaels insulted us with this continual downgrade of what used to be a staple of a culture
The worst SNL ever.
Been a fan of the show since the late 70’s, even through the ups and downs, but I have to say that was the worst show ever. Was looking forward to Jamie Foxx but the show wasn’t funny and the opening monologue just sad. Is that what they are calling comedy now?
I have to agree with Kim. It was the worst monologue especially with his “how black is that” quote over and over. He reminds me of someone else that uses race to divide the races.
This has been my favorite show for 20 years. That was the WORST display I have ever seen last night. I was disgusted. VERY poor taste and the only thing funny was the news. I’m no longer a Jamie Foxx fan. SNL please don’t let that happen again. Don’t bring him back.
Should have taken Fox’s comment as black being the new white as a warning for how the show was going to be, way too black for this white guy.. Worst snl ever, hope it isn’t the new trend..
The man that calls Nobama lord and savior I will never spent another dime to see him in anything. If you call yourself a Christian and support him shame on you. Funny or not he is not worth it.
I could only stomach the first 10 minutes of that POS. I turned the TV off in disgust. I’m officially boycotting the Jack off’s movie. He hates white people so much, he’s not getting any of my money.
F*ck Jamie Foxx and his racist bullsh*t. This is why we have racism, because of sh*tbags like him and SNL giving him a place to promote his hatred. We need more street justice for this kind of sh*t.
Terrible show! Racist Jamie Foxx was horrible as a host and actor. The writing sucked too. I can’t wait for Paul McCartney next week. He should make it a civilized and worthwhile show.
Of course that guy can’t wait for McCartney, and maybe Bing Crosby’s Corpse next week! Checking out the comments on SNL‘s Facebook page, where many of the above quotes were taken from, is cringeworthy at best, makes you hate the world at worst, but I’m curious: has a late-night host/guest ever swayed your decision to see the show, album, or movie they’re promoting? Everyone who’s accusing of SNL and Foxx of being racist is claiming that they’re going to boycott Django, which opens on Christmas, but I doubt they were going to see the movie in the first place (and if they did, they’d likely be upset that Foxx doesn’t spend the entire thing in chains).
White people are the worst. In other words, take it away, Foxx.
