Comedian Bill Burr pissed off a lot of people with his “Saturday Night Live” monologue Saturday night.

The comic, who hosted the sketch comedy show for the first time, gave a seven-minute long stand-up routine touching on the COVID-19 pandemic and cancel culture, among other topics.

About three minutes into the monologue, Burr turned his attention toward white women, calling them out for being complicit “through centuries of crimes against humanity.”

“I’ve got to tell you, the way white women somehow hijacked the woke movement… generals around the world should be analyzing this,” Burr said. “The woke movement was supposed to be about people of color not getting opportunities… finally making that happen. And it was about that for about eight seconds. And then somehow, white women swung their Gucci-booted feet over the fence of oppression and stuck themselves at the

Jack White Honors Eddie Van Halen Through ‘SNL’ Performance

Per their original schedule, the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live was supposed to have country singer Morgan Wallen as its musical guest. Reports from an Alabama publication found that Wallen ran up a fairly high coronavirus risk for the show after he was spotted at a college party, however, and as a result he was dropped from the show. Coming in as a well-prepared substitute for the late scratch, Jack White was announced as Wallen replacement on Friday.

Proving to be a smooth transition from artist to artist, Jack White took the SNL stage backed by a small band that was comprised of drummer Daru Jones and bassist Dominic John Davis.

For his SNL performances, Jack White delivered some of his best hits while putting a new spin on some of them. Playing three songs for viewers during his set, White’s highlight performance came with his closing track.

Bill Burr’s ‘SNL’ Monologue Criticized for Jokes on White Women, Cancel Culture, and Pride Month

Bill Burr is no stranger to challenging woke culture and the accepted way of thinking. Yet, when he brought this unorthodox way of critiquing society to the bright lights of Saturday Night Live, some viewers were outraged by his comments.

Burr’s opening monologue had no shortage of jokes geared towards hot button issues. He attacked those who opposed coronavirus regulations and cancel culture, but it was his jokes about the appropriation of oppression that caught people off guard. Burr stated that woke culture was created for people of color but has been hijacked by white women who were looking to distance themselves from their hand in establishing racism. 

Burr also questioned why the LGBTQ+ community is awarded the entire month of June while Black people are forced to cram their celebrations into a 28-day month. Instead, Burr proposed that Black History month be moved to July because the weather

Megan Thee Stallion delivered a politically charged performance of “Savage” for the Season 46 premiere of “SNL” on Saturday, taking a moment to protest the Breonna Taylor ruling and injustice against Black women.

The rapper performed a remix of her chart-topping song in front of a black screen emblazoned with the message “Protect Black Women” (and later bullet holes), pausing midway to play audio clips from Malcolm X’s famous “Who Taught You to Hate Yourself?” speech from 1962 as well as one from activist Tamika Mallory.

“Daniel Cameron is no different than the sellout Negros that sold our people into slavery,” Mallory could be heard saying, referring to the Kentucky Atty. Gen. who led the Taylor case. Taylor was killed in her apartment in March by Louisville police officers. A grand jury failed to charge

Megan Thee Stallion turned the Saturday Night Live stage into the perfect platform for political discourse during the show’s 46th season premiere hosted by Chris Rock.

In her SNL debut, Megan performed her March release “Savage” alongside four dancers in a room enveloped by the words “Protect Black Women.” The words disappear from sight into darkness midway through the song as gunshots take over the chorus, the black screen replaced by bullet holes.

“The most disrespected, unprotected, neglected person in America is the Black woman,” an audio clip of Malcolm X’s famous 1962 speech, “Who Taught You to Hate Yourself,” says. “Who taught you to hate the texture of your hair, the color of your skin, the shape of your nose? Who taught you to hate yourself from the top of your head to the soles of your feet?”

Megan also echoed the

Megan Thee Stallion Delivers ‘Protect Black Women’ Statement on ‘SNL’

Megan Thee Stallion did not squander her opportunities as the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live,” using the spot to make a direct statement about violence toward Black women.

During her performance of “Savage,” her hit single of last spring, the words “Protect Black Women” appeared on the screen behind her, along with quotes from Malcom X and activist Tamika Mallory calling out Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron over his handling of Breonna Taylor’s death at the hands of Louisville police.

As Megan and her dancers stood at attention in the middle of the song, Mallory’s voice rang out, with the quote “Daniel Cameron is no different than the sell-out negroes who sold our people into slavery” projected behind them. In the case, presented by Cameron’s office, no charges were levied against any of the involved officers that directly related to Taylor’s death.
