So about a month ago Dave Chapelle game a monologue on Saturday Night Live and yes some of his language was kind of harsh. But maybe we as people are too sensitive.
According to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request posted on non-profit site, MuckRock.com, Chappelle’s episode yielded more than a couple of dozen complaints from viewers who were not happy with the comedian’s use of the n-word on the nighttime show. Some of the complaints specifically criticized Chappelle’s punch lines that had racist undertones, while others claimed that a portion of his speech implied that America was racist and amoral for electing Trump to office. But to each complaint, the FCC replied, informing viewers that they did not have the authority to censor SNL because it didn’t meet the organizations guidelines.
