A LOT of people apparently found out who Bill Burr was last night.
The big news earlier in the week was that Morgan Wallen was removed from the show after partying in Tuscaloosa the weekend before, but after his monologue, SNL host Bill Burr became the new target of everybody’s outrage.
He tackled topics like COVID, cancel culture, “woke” white women, gay pride month and more, and as always, he didn’t hold anything back.
So much so that he even said “I’ll probably get canceled for that joke” 2 minutes into the monologue.
And you’ll never guess who was PISSED…
“Woke” white women.
Umm, @billburr yeah you're cancelled. How did you manage to be sexist, racist, AND homophobic in under 5 minutes? #SNL
Made it about one minute into Bill Burr’s SNL monologue before I had to change the channel. In this cultural moment, SNL really thought the best choice for a host was a white male standup ranting about “Cancel Culture?”
Bill Burr is trash and has always been trash. Not because he doesn’t raise valid criticisms in some of his comedy, but because he has always leveraged his ability to point them out to the detriment of change and the benefit of himself, and he can fuck off into the sun for it.
However for others, especially those that appreciate stand up comedy and Bill’s comedic genius, it was a classic Bill Burr performance filled with scathing and unapologetic commentary on the issues our society is facing.
Bill Burr makes valid points about cancel culture trying to cancel EVERYTHING IN SIGHT. Then delivers jokes designed to prove that exact point. And twitter took the bait. Comedy is not for you. It’s about you. #billburr#snlpic.twitter.com/DlL6eo7GEr
