Bill Burr’s “Saturday Night Live” Monologue Divided The Internet, Or Something

October 11, 2020 / Posted by:

Comedian Bill Burr hosted Saturday Night Live last night (with Jack White filling in as musical guest after that country nobody Morgan Wallen was dropped for acting a COVID fool), and his opening monologue gave some a case of the cringes and others a case of of the slow claps. Bill went in on cancel culture and anti-maskers and wondered why Pride Month gets June while Black History Month gets the short month of February. Bill also had things to say about white women, so he just replaced a mandatory mask sign as “Karen” enemy #1.

Bill slapped at anti-makers for being dumb and wanting to kill their own family members, and then got into white women hijacking the Black Lives Matter movement and how Black History Month should be moved to July, via Newsweek and Deadline:

“Somehow, white women swung their Gucci-booted feet over the fence of oppression and stuck themselves at the front of the line,” Burr said, noting that he “never heard so much complaining in [his] life from white women.” He went on to discuss Pride Month, designated to celebrate LGBTQ communities, in a string of comments that eventually drew comparisons to Black History Month, celebrated five months earlier.

“Tank tops! Zero percent body fat! Two guys kissing! I didn’t know that!” Burr said in referencing New York City’s Pride events in June. “That’s what I learned, the month of June is Gay Pride Month. That’s a little long, don’t you think? For a group of people that were never enslaved?”

These are equator people give them the sun for 31 days. There’s gay Black people, they could celebrate from June 1, June 31… give them 61 days of celebrating,” he said.

A math equation! WHY? Here’s Bill’s whole monologue:

And as many people thought, “I didn’t know Billy Corgan did stand-up,” many others hated what came out of his mouth:

While others loved Bill’s monologue:

Beyond Bill’s monologue, Maya Rudolph brought back her Emmy-winning Kamala Harris during the cold open where they made fun of last week’s Vice Presidential Debate.  Beck Bennett played Mike Pence and Jim Carrey came back to play Joe Biden as Jeff Goldblum as The Fly. All the drugs: the SNL writers were on them while coming up with this bit.

Kate McKinnon also did a Weekend Update segment where her COVID paranoia, among other things, forced her to dress up as a non-sensical male doctor who has nothing to say but gibberish, and she eventually broke character for a good minute:

And then Pete Davidson defined accurate when he said he looks like Dobby if Dobby became a TikTok rapper while calling out J.K. Rowling’s transphobic comments:


All in all, if you passed out at 10:30 last night with a bag of Cheetos and some Cold Duck wine, you didn’t miss much. And thoughts and prayers to SNL’s contact line which is about to get flooded with thousands of screaming messages, and that’ll just be from J.K. Rowling alone.
