SNL’s Pete Davidson Compares R. Kelly Scandal to Catholic Church March 10, 2019

The latest, from SNL:

Pete Davidson tackled the R. Kelly sex abuse scandal on “Saturday Night Live” and compared the R&B singer’s fans to Catholic church supporters.

Davidson appeared in the “Weekend Update” segment Saturday night and began his appearance by calling R. Kelly, who was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sex abuse, a “monster” and “should go to jail forever.” He then likened the R. Kelly allegations to the Catholic church child abuse scandal.

“But if you support the Catholic church, isn’t that the same thing as being an R. Kelly fan? I don’t really see the difference — only one’s music is significantly better,” Davidson said, which received boos and laughs from the audience.
