Pretty, pretty, pretty awful.
“Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Larry David is in hot water with “Saturday Night Live” viewers after making a joke about the Holocaust that’s being slammed as insensitive.
“I’ve always been obsessed with women, and I’ve often wondered if I’d grown up in Poland when Hitler came to power and was sent to a concentration camp, would I be checking women out in the camp? I think I would,” he said in his monologue.
“However, there are no good opening lines in a concentration camp.”
Not long after the questionable joke left David’s lips, reactions began pouring in on Twitter.
Some stated simply that the joke was “not cool,” while others had harsher critiques of the “Seinfeld” creator’s witticism.
The controversy didn’t end there.
David, 70, also touched upon the Harvey Weinstein scandal, stating that he felt it was giving other Jewish folks a bad rap.
He suggested that “a very disturbing pattern” of Jewish predators was emerging in Hollywood.
“Not all but many of them are Jews,” he said in reference to allegations against Weinstein, Brett Ratner and others accused of sexual assault.
Larry David was slammed for making jokes about the Holocaust and Harvey Weinstein during his “Saturday Night Live” monologue.
“I don’t like when Jews are in the headlines for notorious reasons. I want ‘Einstein discovers the theory of relativity,’ ‘Salk cures polio.’ What I don’t want? ‘Weinstein took it out.’ “
“I consistently strive to be a good Jewish representative,” he continued. “When people see me I want them to say, ‘Oh, there goes a fine Jew for you!'”
The joke was one of two Weinstein references made in the most recent “Saturday Night Live” episode. The first, made during the cold open, was decidedly less controversial.
