SNL alum had sense enough to back out of criminally unfunny "antisemitism" sketch at the last minute: report

While it is still unclear how SNL's "antisemitism" sketch made air, reports claim at least one person had the sense to back out. Alumni Cecily Strong was set to play GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik. And I know what most of you are thinking. "Brodigan, not THE Cecily Strong. Also, who's Cecily Strong?" Apparently, she was a cast member from 2012 - 2022. Go figure.
In the wildly planned cold open, the show tackled the congressional antisemitism hearings where the heads of three elite universities couldn't say that calling for Jewish genocide was a bad thing. But to SNL, the issue wasn't the antisemitism. The issue was that the three presidents were so bad they made Rep. Stefanik look likable and gave the GOP a win.
According to sources leaking on the New York Post:
Strong, 39, appeared as a guest in the dress rehearsal ahead of the live show, then changed her mind “last minute” about playing Stefanik in the sketch, which mocked last week’s congressional hearings on antisemitism on college campuses.
A TV source told The Post: “Cecily was uncomfortable with the sketch.”
Another insider added: “There were a variety of reasons, and last minute Cecily pulled out of the cold open.”
How much credit she deserves depends on her reasons for pulling out. If she saw how horrendous the sketch was even by SNL's usual standard of niche progressive virtue signaling and thought the "Republicans seize" angle was the wrong way to go, good for her. Perhaps she felt they were plagiarizing the New York Times.
She could also have backed out because of the topic, claiming antisemitism is no laughing matter. That's not on her as much as it is the lazy, bitterly partisan writers. "Knock knock, who's there, 'from the river to the sea'" isn't funny. Doing five minutes on terrorizing neighborhoods of Jewish people to the point they are told to shelter in place isn't funny. The comedy is from mocking radical progressive orthodoxy. Which is moderate Democrat Party orthodoxy. Which is the only thing SNL stands for.
A table full of elitist university presidents who don't believe in your freedom of speech to misgender someone, be fatphobic, or engage in whatever the f*ck "cisheterosexism" is think that calling for the genocide of Jews falls into a murky area.
The heads of our most prestigious institutes of higher learning claims saying Jews need to be genocided is protected under the First Amendment. But if you genocide them yourself, that would violate the university code of conduct.
LIVE, FROM NEW YORK, IT'S... and so on.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
