    Bill’s monologue covered a range of topical issues, from mask wearing…

    Bill saying, "If you don't wear a mask, that doesn't bug me either. Take out your grandparents. Take out your weak cousin with the asthma."


    The bit started with Bill praising those who wear masks.

    …to cancel culture…

    Bill saying, "They're literally running out of people to cancel. They're going after dead people now. They're trying to cancel John Wayne — it's like God did that 40 years ago."


    Bill referenced a 1971 Playboy interview with John Wayne that went viral last year after quotes such as, “I believe in white supremacy” resurfaced.

    …to white women in the “woke” movement…

    Bill saying, "White women swung their Gucci-booted feet over the fence of oppression and stuck themselves at the front of the line. I don't know how they did it. I've never heard so much complaining in my life, from white women."


    He later added, “I don’t want to speak ill of my bitches here.”

    …to LGBTQ Pride month.

    Bill saying, "The month of June is gay Pride month. That's a little long, don't you think? For a group of people who were never enslaved. How do they get all of June? The Black people, who were actually enslaved, they get February."


    He then added that Black people should have July as, “these are equator people.”

    Some criticized the monologue:

    who told bill burr he, a straight white man, should try to tackle homophobia and racism in the worst way possible in his snl monologue

    Did Bill Burr really just say that? Calling Black folks “equator people,” White women “b–ches” and claiming he never heard of Pride Month. #SNL please do better

    Bill Burr’s opening monologue is just obnoxious and misogynstic. It’s 2020. Someone tell him calling women “bitches” isn’t funny #SNL

    Watching Bill Burr right now #SNL

    While many praised Bill:

    That Bill Burr monologue was fucking hilarious. And so well crafted minus the cancel culture part that bombed.

    Bill Burr: white women have benefited from white supremacy as well, so sit y’all fake woke asses down White women on twitter: #SNL

    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 #snl

    The irony in Bill Burr saying white women make everything about themselves, just to come online and see white women in fact crying over the episode & feeling attacked, is just great….can’t make this stuff up😂😂 #SNL #BILLBURR

    And others were just unsurprised about the whole thing:

    This is exactly what why I was excited to see Bill Burr host SNL tonight
