People Are Not Happy With Jimmy Fallon's "SNL" Sketch About Gay Ebenezer Scrooge

They were not creating magic.

Posted on

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.

Plenty of people were disappointed by the cliche-filled sketch.

Loved everything except "What if Scrooge was gay"… really #SNL? Your 12 year old is showing, and cliche-ing all over my TV. #JIMMYJUSTINSNL

They made Ebineezer Scrooge gay. They made him gay, and that's why he was a grumpy old fart. Low blow, SNL. Low blow....

Gay Scrooge seems like it should be a Chris Kattan sketch from 15 years ago. It wouldn't have been funny then either. #SNL

That stereotypical gay Scrooge sketch really showed SNL's diversity. They hadn't made a lazy gay joke since Update!
