Talk about prejudice

Saturday night live is in real trouble over the Tiger Jokes.
Let's see Sarah Palin Was torn apart every one thought it was cute.
Then they went after her family.

NTB, nothing is sacred to the idiots on SNL. They seem to think that everything is open to what they consider "humor." I stopped watching several years ago. Personally, I think the show has outlived itself.

My question is how Tiger gets them in trouble when they applauded tearing up Sarah P
I really have a dislike of the media.

The media sucks, but there's not a whole lot we can do about it. They're going to jump on whatever bandwagon they wish.

At first I thought you'd misspelled "prodigious"....and wondered if this was further news about Tiger.

I see now that you meant "prejudice"....

Saturday Night Live is in "big trouble" for the Tiger skit? How so? It was a skit...a spoof...an attempt at humor.

SNL lampoons everyone and anyone who is in the public eye....celebrities, politicians, athletes....and particularly those who have done something to put themselves in the news.

Do you think it's terrible when they flame Obama? or Hillary? or McCain?

Sarah Palin obviously thought the skits featuring her, played brilliantly by Tina Fey, were "cute" too, since she (Palin) appeared on SNL herself in a skit.

In fact, Obama appeared on SNL in a skit about Hillary....McCain appeared in person in a spoof with Tina Fey playing Palin....and Hillary also appeared on SNL.

Lighten up! SNL isn't the news media. It's stupid entertainment.

Anyone who doesn't laugh at this skit has zip sense of humor. (By the way that is THE real Sarah Palin....she seemed to be enjoying it)

Brilliant!

The reason for criticism about the Tiger domestic violence skit is that also on the show was Rhianna, a recent victim of domestic violence.

The complaint was it was insensitive to do the skit when she was on. Haven't seen it, and I'm sure the Tiger bit was well done, they usually are. Only reporting what I read about the occasion

Can't find the article so I might not be correct but maybe someone should ask her if she was offended, because that is the only thing that matters.

I have been to Saturday Night Live and I am sure that she had to be aware of the skit because before they do the live show they do a complete run through of the show with an audience as if it was the actual show.

Make sure that if you have tickets that it is to the Live show and not the dress rehearsal. I was at the rehearsal.
