Okay, the inspiration for this segment has been on our minds for weeks, but this was the final straw: this “Saturday Night Live” sketch about a sexual assault trial. The premise: a 32-year-old female teacher is on trial for having sex with her 16-year-old student.
We can’t figure out what you’re trying to say, SNL. Are you trying to be gross? Because blech! You do realize most of the characters in this sketch are celebrating the sexual assault of a minor, right? Are you reflecting humanity at its most shameful? Or are you saying sex with a hot woman should always be congratulates, even when that woman is a rapist?
Or — really, we have so many questions.
Then there’s Rebel Wilson. At the most recent MTV Movie Awards, actress Rebel Wilson wore what looked like Victoria’s Secret angel wings and pleather stretch pants that said “think” on the butt. Wilson told reporters, “Sometimes girls will look at Victoria’s Secret models…. They’re not the best people to model themselves after. I’d like to encourage other girls to think … which is why I put that on my butt.”
But any time you put writing on a butt, it’s going to be confusing, like Juicy sweatpants.
So what are you trying to say here, Rebel? You’re a comedy genius, but we need you to be more literal. Are you trying to say, “I’m using the shock value of this outfit to bring awareness to the fact that girls should not aspire to wear this outfit?”
Maybe? We don’t know. So what are you trying to say?
