    So Kanye shouldn’t be able to share his opinion? But each episode of snl and each late night show can voice their opinions? He asked people to join him on stage and Seth mentioned that none of them agreed with him but their opinion is the only right one so it’s the only one that should be voiced and shouldn’t be criticized? I do not care about politics but i do care about respect and I hate hypocritical nonsense. hypocritical nonsense is ridiculous. if you want people to respect your opinion and your ability to stand on a stage for hours a week and broadcast your opinion, then it needs to be mutually acceptable for all. don’t be hypocrites.

    Yeah so they both start off by taking shots on Kanye then Kenan says they let him do that(still didn't air that thing which was not in any way that bad and imo are overcritisizing him) and didn't/won/t judge. Isn't that a contradiction?

  • Ellen Lincourt

    It's sad that someone as mentally I'll as Kanye is still being booked and filmed. Ignoring his political beliefs, he is suffering from some severe mental distress. The people around don't seem to care as long as the gravy train continues. Until he is no longer booked, it is unlikely that he will get good treatment. Sycophants more interested in the largest of a star will let addiction and mental illness prevail even up to death. Look what happened to Prince, Michael Jackson, and others.

    I just got emotional, because I’m 35 years old and it occurred to me that this dude has been making me laugh most of my fucking life. All That doesn’t feel that long ago, I remember the premier, I remember his voice cracking, I remember him getting to big for the tub when he played Pierre Escargot, I remember his first SNL season. and now he’s fcking 40?!!! Time is a weird thing.

    What really shoukd have won Hemry W a Emmy was his chatacter in the Cop Drama Third Watch. That character was such scum and Henry was so good that he who I love d8sappered and all I saw was the character that I hated and had great pleasure in seeing Officer Faith lock his butt up. That was Emmy worthy if ever a time.

    So Kanye shouldn't do that, but Kaep should kneel and the cast of Hamilton should get political in front of the audience. Must be easy being a liberal, being able to live without standards and all.

    I remember watching Kenan on All That and his show with Kel as a kid, and I never ever thought he was the one we'd be watching all these years later. Now I couldn't imagine SNL without him! He's come such a long way, and I am so happy for his success.

    Calling someone crazy is just dismissing them and claiming everything they said is un credible. So i think the liberals know what kanye said was the truth so instead of anyone proving him wrong they just call him crazy.

    Kenan is such a gem, I've been watching him since I was a child back on All That and Kenan and Kel. He's an absolute LEGEND in the business, no wonder he became such a well respected staples of SNL. He could probably do one of those Masterclass sessions all about sketch comedy.
