Social Media Slams Larry David for His 'SNL' Concentration Camp Joke

Social Media Slams Larry David for His 'SNL' Concentration Camp Joke

"How's it going?' 'They treatin" you okay?' 'You know, if we ever get out of here, I'd love to take you out for some latkes.

David, a co-creator of "Seinfeld" and star of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm", hosted the NBC television show Saturday.

So, it's hardly any surprise that while hosting Saturday Night Live, David managed to ruffle a few feathers, but what is surprising is how he managed to do so: By trying to make a moment of his signature situational comedy out of the Holocaust.

DiGiorno Pizza Is Shading Papa John's on Twitter Over NFL Comments
Shares of Papa John's International Inc., based in Louisville, Kentucky, fell $6.60 to $61.45 on Wednesday . Pizza delivery during live sporting events are crucial sales drivers for both pizza chains .


Then he went on to tell a holocaust joke about dating in a concentration camp. It's not a sophisticated double entendre, but it's an effective one.

Just when you thought Larry David's #SNL monologue couldn't get worse, he joked about seducing women in concentration camps. Wow.

David also talked about "a very disturbing pattern emerging" with predators accused of sexual harassment, referencing producer Harvey Weinstein and the allegations that have surfaced against him.

Social media posts played a major role in fueling major anti-government protests in Zimbabwe previous year . The organization tweeted a photograph of O'Donovan and her lawyer at the police station Friday.


"I couldn't help but notice a very disturbing pattern emerging, which is numerous predators, not all but many of them, are Jews", he went on, cringing and gripping his cheeks.

Jews and non-Jews criticized David on social media even before SNL wrapped for the night. "When I need to wash the one suit I own, I just wait until it rains, I stand outside for 15 minutes and then I jog behind a bus until the exhaust dries me off", Sanders says when asked to bid.

"I think I would", David continued, before acting out what his pickup lines might be. It moved fast, had a lot of variety and successful segments, and made great use of Larry David's inherent weirdness. Salk cures polio. What I don't want: "'Weinstein took it out'".

No cooperation between Russian Federation and United States on North Korea
The pair will meet at an Asian economic summit in Vietnam next week and there is a "great possibility" they will tackle the issue. Joined by his wife Melania on part of the trip, Trump's tour of Asia is the longest by an American president since George H.W.
