After Chris Rock kicked off the season premiere by helming hosting duties on Saturday, October 3, it was time to see how comedian Bill Burr would fare in hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’. He was hosting the show for the first time.

He began by addressing the topic of anti-maskers. Burr said, “I don’t care it’s your decision, there’s too many people. If you’re that dumb and you wanna kill your own family members then do it, it stops you from producing.” The host then took a potshot at cancel culture and said, “They’re literally running out of people to cancel, they’re going after dead people now,” referring to John Wayne. “It’s like yeah he was born in 1907 that’s what these people sounded like. You never talked to your grandparents and brought up the wrong subject?”

His next target was White women and the recent woke culture. He commented, “It should’ve been about people of color…  somehow white women swung their Gucci-footed feet over the fence of oppression and stuck themselves at the front of the line.”

Burr even questioned why Gay Pride has an entire month for recognition. “The month of June is Gay Pride month. That’s a little long, don’t you think? For a group of people that were never enslaved.” He also added, “These are equator people give them the sun for 31 days. There’s gay Black people, they could celebrate from June 1, June 31 give them 61 days to celebrate.”

Burr’s monologue caused quite a buzz on social media and many viewers took to Twitter to air their views on the same. One user wrote, “That’s Bill Burr.  Dude is funny. But the monologue didn’t land tonight. Nothing worked. It was an f’d night. The Sam Adams beer commercial at the end was spot on. But the rest of the night was painful. Too bad.” One opined, “Bill Burr's monologue on @snl tonight was truth. If you're mad he called out ww or suggested Black people should get more than 28 days, too bad. This was no denigration of LGBTQ. We can recognize both appropriately.” Another said, “I just watched the Bill Burr monologue lowkey was rlly unfunny but it wasn't that deep people overreacted yet again lol” One tweeted, “@nbcsnl please never let this bill person host ever again.” One said, “The outrage over bill burr’s SNL monologue just proves that y’alls sense of humor is officially extinct in 2020.”

One critiqued, “Bill Burr was the absolute worst monologue ever -  I turned off the @nbcsnl show.  He was so bad the audience were clapping loud and grateful when he stopped talking.” Another said, “Why is a straight white man talking about gay people and black people. bill burr you just delivered the worst monologue.” One said, “I have no idea who Bill Burr is, but so far his monologue was the worst I have ever heard. Sorry, Jack White, I'll catch clips later on YouTube.” One stated, “Bill Burr's monologue on SNL managed to be sexist, homophobic, and racist. Okay Cool.”
