Former US President Donald Trump's Supporters File FCC Complaints Against SNL, NBC, and Other Comedian Impersonators
Former U.S. President Donald Trump's supporters are criticizing NBC, SNL, and other comedian impersonators. They claim that the popular Saturday Night Live is taking it too far to make fun of politicians, especially Trump.
The Vice reported that the fans of the former U.S. president filed complaints to the Government Attic and the Freedom of Information Act (FCC).
These complaints specifically target NBC, SNL, and other comedian impersonators, who are heckling the politicians and other government officials of the nation.
They added that Saturday Night Live should stop offering content that is making mean jokes and saying curse words against Donald Trump.
"Cancel Culture has to be stopped, but you can not allow on any broadcast the depiction /insinuation/outright demonstration of a leader of the United States being assassinated," said one of the viewers after Michel Che delivered a John Wikes Booth joke during weekend update back in 2019.
Donald Trump's Fans File Complaints Against SNL
According to the Government Attic's PDF file, CBG already conducted a search of databases containing informal complaints.
"Records responsive to your request were withheld or redacted under FOIA Exemption 6. Exemption 6 protects 'personnel and medical files and similar files the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.'" said the agency in the letter.
On the other hand, the letter also accuses NBC of encouraging its signature series, SNL, to insult politicians and their children. There's an instance when Katie Rich, the comedy writer of the show, said that Donald Trump's 10-year-old son, Barron Trump, would be the next school shooter.
Complainers said that SNL's irresponsible content should not be allowed to air in public. They added that networks with broadcast licenses should not exhibit inappropriate behavior since all ages can watch their shows.
Some People Still Support SNL
Although some people are now criticizing the content offered by SNL, there are still some fans claiming that NBC's Saturday Night Live offers great episodes.
According to The Thing, those who already attended the live show said that the stage is smaller compared to when you are watching it online. Some fans even said that the scenes are seamless, especially since a lot of actors are bustling around the stage.
Many people may criticize the show, but even more individuals will still try to support it since it makes the real situation in the United States a lot lighter.
