Well, Chris Rock and his SNL monologue definitely polarized the opinions of fans on Twitter. Nearly as many people praised his performance on SNL last night, as said they found it distasteful. With topics like 9/11 and the Boston Marathon…he must have known things would be tetchy.
The episode name-checked Scandal and Uber several times. While some of the sketches were near perfection (“Realizing you love Taylor Swift is the leading cause of vertigo in adults”) others were of the poorest possible quality imaginable. Below are some of the sharpest tweets that came about during the live East Coast run of the show.
