"Just when you thought Larry David's 'SNL' monologue couldn't get worse, he joked about seducing women in concentration camps. Wow."
Larry David made his return to Saturday Night Live to talk about sexual harassment, Jewish people and concentration camps, which immediately drew some criticism on social media.
In response to the sexual abuse scandal plaguing Hollywood — in which several of the town's biggest names, including Harvey Weinstein, Dustin Hoffman, Brett Ratner, Kevin Spacey and several others, have been accused of sexual harassment and, in some cases, assault and rape — David joked in his opening monologue, "A lot of sexual harassment stuff in the news and I couldn’t help but notice a very disturbing pattern emerging, which is that many of the predators, not all, but many of them are Jews."
He continued, "I don’t like when Jews are in the headlines for notorious reasons. I want ‘Einstein discovers the theory of relativity,' ’Salk cures polio.' What I don’t want? ‘Weinstein took it out.’"
