SNL Mocks The NFL's Response To Domestic Violence AND Makes Fun Of Chris Brown In The Same Skit! But Did They Go Too Far?!
This is one way to get people's attention!
The writers made fun of how the NFL handled Ray Rice's domestic abuse scandal, as well as many others, and they definitely hit some chords!
In the skit, the Baltimore Ravens and Carolina Panthers players introduced themselves with their name and the crime they committed, instead of their position. Well, this was sort of funny, but went awry when Kenan Thompson introduced himself as "Kendrick Douglas. I hit my wife." All the laughs abruptly stopped, until his ‘wife' popped up, saying she hit him back, which people started applauding.
Um, aren't we trying to stop all domestic violence here?
And then they jabbed Chris Brown at the end, saying that he'd be the halftime performer for the game.
Take a look (above) and tell us if you think SNL went too far, or if it was just right?
