Saturday Night Live Writer Defends Slavery Jokes

Leslie Jones, Colin Jost

Saturday Night Live is never shy about taking on taboo topics, but this weekend's episode, which featured a bit making jokes about slavery, has caused quite an Internet stir.

On Saturday's "Weekend Update" segment, writer Leslie Jones made her on-screen debut in a bit about being single. Jones then talked about slavery, saying, "Back in the slave days, I would've never been single. I'm 6 feet tall and I'm strong!" She then continued by saying, "I do not want to be a slave. I don't like working for you white people now, and ya'll pay me. I'm just saying back in the slave days, my love life would've been way better. Master would've hooked me up with the best brother on the plantation."

Thursday Review: Bad Teacher, Black Box, Hulu's Moone Boy

Ari Graynor

A week ago, I was raving about FX's inspired reinvention of Fargo from movie to TV series. But this week, we get a cautionary reminder that there are movies that just shouldn't be adapted for TV. Case in point: CBS's head-of-no-class version of 2011's Bad Teacher (Thursday, 9:30/8:30c) that flunks basic lessons of chemistry — starting with... read more
