'SNL': Larry David stirs controversy with concentration camp jokes in opening monologue

Larry David's controversial "Saturday Night Live" opening monologue apparently curbed some Twitter users' enthusiasm for the comedian's stint as host.

>> Watch the monologue here (WARNING: Viewer discretion advised)

David, who won over “SNL” fans with his portrayal of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders during the 2016 presidential campaign, kicked off Saturday's episode with a stand-up bit that included jokes referencing the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the Holocaust.

“A lot of sexual harassment stuff in the news of late, and I couldn’t help but notice a very disturbing pattern emerging, which is that many of the predators — not all, but many of them — are Jews. And I have three words to say to that: Oy vey iz mir (woe is me)," David said.

The "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star also joked about hitting on women in concentration camps.

"I've always been obsessed with women, and I've often wondered if I'd grown up in Poland when Hitler came to power and was sent to a concentration camp, would I still be checking women out in the camp? I think I would," David quipped, adding, "Of course, the problem is, there are no good opening lines in a concentration camp."

Critics took to Twitter to blast David. Check out some of the comments below:

Many fans, however, spoke in David's defense:

Blake Shelton Live: ‘Somebody drove their truck into my house’

“This is a weird moment for me,” country music star Blake Shelton said while promoting his new album during a nationally televised interview Friday morning. “I’m talking about ‘Texoma Shore’ and I made the album at my lake house, and I just got a phone call.

Somebody drove their truck through the front of my lake house,” he said.

Shelton’s said his house is on Lake Texoma in Oklahoma. He was in New York City on Friday to appear on “Live With Kelly and Ryan.” 

After some small talk, Shelton mentioned the truck crashing into his home, which also doubles as a studio. He even made light of it, since there have been no reports of injuries. However, Shelton wondered if the crash was a bad omen.

“So if this album doesn’t hit, then that’s bad luck,” he said.

The crash was an accident, Shelton told his hosts, but he was still perplexed.

“There's a truck sticking out of the front of my freaking house. I gotta sell some records.”

According to Marshall County Water employee Eric Bridgeman, who was working next door, the accident happened around 9:30 a.m. Friday, KTEN reported.

A man who worked for Allison Landscape and Pool Company came to Shelton's house and was trying to get through the gate,” KTEN reported. That's when Bridgeman said he heard a loud crash.

The pool company's truck had rolled into the gate and crashed through the front wall of the house with no one behind the wheel. KTEN reported.

“He made every effort ... I mean, the door was open on the truck and he was running as fast as he could,” Bridgeman told KTEN. “Honestly, if there was anything I could have done to help him, I would have, and I know my buddy would have.”

Selena's best-known songs include “Bid, Bid Bom Bom,” “Dreaming of You,” “No Me Queda Mas,” “Amor Prohibido” and “Como La Flor.”

The ceremony was the first at night since Feb. 8, 2010, when a star honoring Beatles drummer Ringo Starr was unveiled, said Leron Gubler, president and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which administers the Walk of Fame.

“Ricochet: David Bowie 1983” will showcase the pictures British photographer Denis O’Regan and will be published by Moonlight Books. Only 2,000 copies will be produced, The Guardian reported.

O’Regan recalled telling Bowie that it was seeing the Ziggy Stardust concert at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1973 that inspired him to take up rock photography, The Guardian reported“Being David, he wasn’t very good at taking compliments. I said: ‘It’s because of you that I became a rock photographer.’ He said: ‘Yeah, you’ll probably tell Bono the same thing tomorrow night.’”The book will contain memorabilia that includes handwritten lyrics, tickets, set lists, three large limited-edition prints and a 12-inch picture disc of “Ricochet” and “Let’s Dance.”

Bowie had intended to sign the book before his death in January 2016. Bowie and O’Regan sifted through nearly 20,000 photographs from the tour, The Guardian reported.
