‘SNL:’ Louis C.K.’s Child Molester Jokes During Monologue — Offensive?
The comedian began his monologue talking about his “mild racism,” but things took a turn when he began talking about the child molester that lived on his street when he was a kid.
“Child molesters are very tenacious people,” Louis begins (6:50). “They love molesting [children]. It’s crazy. It’s like their favorite thing. When you consider the risk of being a child molester — there is no worse life available to a human than being a caught child molester. And yet they still do it! Which you could only really surmise, that it must be really good.”
There were a ton of uncomfortable laughs and boos from the crowd — and then Louis even took it further!
“I love Mounds Bars, it’s my favorite thing,” Louis says (7:48). “If someone said to me if you eat another Mounds bar you’ll go to jail… I would stop eating them. Because they do taste delicious, but they don’t taste as good as a young boy does and shouldn’t to a child molester.”
Louis might want to step away from Mounds Candy bars…
“How do you think I feel? It’s my last show, probably,” Louis laughed.
