Anyone whose been parenting throughout the COVID-19 epidemic has probably come close to losing their sanity over the last few weeks. No school. No daycare. No extra-curricular activities. So the cast of "Saturday Night" has a novel approach to the situation, let kids have a drink (or two "if they've been good.")
The images of toddlers taking down martinis was a bit much for some people.
Rude SNL opens with a self produced "Let Kids Drink" music video, glamorizing young children drinking with their 'parents', getting dunk and passing out. Not funny on any level.— IBMrJeff (@IBMrJeff) May 10, 2020
I'm all for pushing the comedic envelope but I think tonight's skit on SNL "Let Kids Drink" is a little uncalled for and inappropriate even for SNL— Bethanne Brown (@bethanne_brown) May 10, 2020
But for 99% of everyone else who understands there's a difference between a joke about the stresses of parenting during a pandemic and advocating for juvenile alcoholism, it was funny.
SNL has been offending people for 45 years. It's literally their job. If you're offended by the Let Kids Drink skit you're officially old.— Doug Arrowsmith (@ArrowsmithDoug) May 10, 2020
