Telemundo Winter Olympics - SNL Skit with host Jennifer Lopez
On the other hand, this I found to be the weakest link. I mean it had all the potential to be hilarious. But it just wasn’t funny. Well I did laugh a little when they were reacting to the ski jump. (Hahaha! Who doesn’t lose it when they jump off that thing?!) It’s just I just found the writing to be, I dunno, a bit bland. It’s JLO for crying out loud. The possibilities for comedy are endless. And you come out with this. Ugh!
Fanning the fury, I’ve read that some Latino peeps found this skit to be offensive citing it as “a portrayal of the Latin community as ignorant fools who do not know what snow is.” Hahaha! (Oops sorry!) Even better: “Latin people don’t all have a funny accent and we all don’t yell when we speak!” Well, my neighbors certainly do. They yell ALL the time. In fact, they’re yelling right now. Lol! Have I told you I’m Latin?! Whatevers!
The fact of the matter is, offensive or not, it’s just wasn’t that funny. Now I’ll tell you what WAS funny. JLO trying to sing. That was freaking hilarious. Did you see that?! (Cringing!)
