Louis C.K. Monologue: Pedo 'SNL' Jokes Raise Ire (Video)

Child molestation jokes and racism in the monologue that comedian Louis C.K. used to open "Saturday Night Live" stirred up a storm on social media.

The Emmy-winning entertainer kicked off the finale of iconic comedy sketch show's 40th season by saying that while growing up a neighborhood child molester "didn't like me – I felt a little bad," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

He then attempted to describe child molesting from the culprit's eyes.



"From their point of view, it must be amazing, for them to risk so much," the comedian said.

He finished by describing a child molester's urge to attack children to his joy of eating Mounds candy bars, wrote Deadline.com.

"The comedian began jovially enough but quickly segued into a riff on Israel-Palestine, comparing the warring sides to his bickering children, then went on to acknowledging his 'mildly racist' attitudes (among the lines of his different thought-responses to white-male-in-hoodie versus black-male-in-hoodie) and the clincher: A long bit about your friendly local neighborhood pedophile that was guaranteed to offend even the most divided among the viewers of the earlier material," wrote Deadline.com's Jeremy Gerard.

Many on social media bashed the monologue.


But Louis C.K., whose real name is Louis Szekely, did find a handful of defenders online.
