Did you see this skit on Saturday Night Live last weekend? Some people saw it and were not happy. Do you think it makes light of female teacher sex scandal?
Here’s more from the YouTube description:
I’m surprised it took them this long, but SNL finally decided to make a sketch about one of the country’s constantly hot news topics: female teachers having sex with underage students. In the sketch, Pete Davidson plays a student who had an affair with his sexy teacher, represented by Cecily Strong. As you can see in the video, Davidson is on the witness stand giving his account of the affair. And his account just so happens to be GLARINGLY POSITIVE. All the other men in the courtroom seem to also think that Davidson is ‘THE MAN’ for fucking his teacher. A real “Fred Pimpstone.”
Obviously this is comedy and an embellished point of view — especially the reaction from the adults in the courtroom — but when I was 16-years-old, I probably would have sex with a hot teacher if I were given the opportunity. I wouldn’t have expected my father to love me more or a judge to fist bump me — both would probably be appropriately appalled by it — but I probably would have done it.
That was the point that SNL was trying to make, but as our friends at UPROXX pointed out, some people were very offended by it.
