(Warning: Contains explicit language)
We all know Jon Lovitz for his awesome sense of humor, his comedy acts and his entertainment value, but this time his entertainment seems to be raising too many eyebrows.
The former Saturday Night Live star slammed President Barack Obama with inflammatory language on his podcast known as ‘The ABCs of SNL’ which was being recorded live from the Jon Lovtiz Podcast Theater. In his show which was also being co-hosted by Kevin Smith, Jon joked about the President by saying that he is a ‘f**king a**hole’ when he says that rich people don’t pay their taxes.
He also goes to another level by talking about his background saying that he was father-less, belonged to a mixed race, and the guy ends up being at Harvard and then the President of the country.
“If I make a dollar and out of every dollar I'm taxed at 50, half, at 50 cents, I have to give, isn't that like enough?” however, it is still unclear whether Lovitz’s comments are just in jest or if he is really serious about what he said, because in the latter case this will definitely be the biggest story of all time.
Furthermore, the rant took place somewhere in January, but the podcast emerged on the surface this Sunday. It is also important to mention here that Lovitz is not the only SNL case member who has criticized Obama. How can anyone forget Victoria Jackson? The most outspoken of Obama’s critics who went on to the extent of labeling the President as being raised as a Marxist.
What is important to understand here is that these show anchors and entertainers must keep a check as to what they are telling people. Even in a comic situation it is not permissible to use inflammatory or such explicit language for the head of the state, a symbol and position that is respected and reputed all over the world.
