“Did Bill Burr really just say that?”
Bill’s monologue covered a range of topical issues, from mask wearing…
The bit started with Bill praising those who wear masks.
…to cancel culture…
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…
He later added, “I don’t want to speak ill of my bitches here.”
…to LGBTQ Pride month.
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
