Tiffany Haddish and Saturday Night Live take on sexual abusers

“Have I both fostered and benefitted from a culture of systemic oppression?”

November 12, 2017

After a week where multiple powerful men faced new allegations of seuall misconduct, including Louis C.K. and Roy Moore, Saturday Night Live didn't shy away from addressing any of it.


In the SNL cold open, they address the allegations towards Roy Moore, an Alabama judge currently running to become a U.S. Senator. Three women have come forward saying that Moore tried to or succeeded in dating them while they were only teenagers. One of the women was only 14 at the time, when Moore allegedly attempted to have sex with her.

Jeff Sessions, played by Kate McKinnon, wonders aloud during the sketch about all of the allegations, again taking aim at President Donald Trump. The president has been accused by 16 women of varying sexual misconduct.

"There's so many bad men out there! Mr. Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, the president...Has this been happening forever? Have I both fostered and benefited from a culture of systemic oppression?"

Then in Tiffany Haddish'smonologue, she takes aim at Louis C.K., who publicly admitted that he was guilty of the allegations made by multiple women. In response to all of the news, she gave some simple advice, which she called "Tiff Tips."

"Listen fellas, listen. If you've got your thing thing out, and she's got all her clothes on, you're in the wrong! Wait until she takes her own clothes off, then pull your thing thing out."
