NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” finally broached the topic of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment allegations during its Saturday broadcast.
Last week’s broadcast of the long-running weekend night program avoided the topic altogether and was criticized for doing so.
Twice during the program, the scandal was referenced.
The first came during a skit featuring Kate McKinnon’s recurring character “Debette Goldry.”
The second reference came during “Weekend Update,” which featured co-anchor Colin Jost panning Weinstein after introducing the new Apple iOS emojis.
