Jim Carrey Disses Brian Williams At ‘SNL’ 40th Anniversary — Asks “Where Is He”
Jim is definitely one of a kind. Matt and Savannah were interviewing Jim and Tina and asking them what SNL meant to them and their favorite moments, and just before ending the interview, Jim asked if he could turn the table on them.
He then proceeded to diss the former NBC News anchor — who has been suspended for six months stemming from his claims about the Iraq war in 2003.
Jim said, “Can I ask you a question, you guys?” he asked the co-hosts. “Where are you hiding Brian Williams? Where is he? I just want to say something in his defense. If the helicopter in front of me gets hit, I’m taking the story.”
After an incredibly awkward moment of silence — including uncomfortable looks on Tina and Savannah’s faces, Matt saved the day by saying, “Oh, look at the time” and then swiftly ended the interview.
