I know. It made me cringe too. The idea of spoofing anything so serious never seems like a good idea and considering we’re talking about a case where we’re just barely starting to make steps in the direction of justice, most people are thinking this spoof is way too soon or shouldn’t have happened at all.
Of course that never stops comedians, and this weekend “Saturday Night Live” used the Trayvon Martin case as the basis of one of their skits. While the jokes were really on Piers Morgan, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West, and definitely roused some laughs, the teenager’s tragic death as the backdrop just seemed a tad off.
Check out the skit and tell us what you think, fair play or too insensitive?
