People Are Not Happy With Jimmy Fallon's "SNL" Sketch About Gay Ebenezer Scrooge
They were not creating magic.
Jimmy Fallon returned to host SNL last night and the show had plenty of high moments, but a sketch called "Christmas Past" was not one of them.
The premise seemed innocuous enough: The Ghost of Christmas Past (Kenan Thompson) brought an elderly Scrooge (Taran Killam) to a party from his younger days.
Then, he saw a younger version of himself (played by Fallon), complete with a stereotypically gay high-pitched, lisping voice.
And things took a simultaneously vulgar and extra-clichéd turn.
What grosses a gay man out more than the euphemism for cat?
