Yeah, joking about black men and Trayvon Martin… just doesn’t strike us as funny:

Saturday Night Live” took jabs at Piers Morgan, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and “Game of Thrones” Saturday night, but it was cast member Jay Pharaoh rather than host Josh Brolin who earned the most buzz. In a controversial skit, cast member Taran Killam reprised his role as news commentator Morgan, and discussed the controversial Trayvon Martin case with a slew of famous figures, including Ozzie Guillen (played by Brolin), West (played by Pharoah), and Kim Kardashian, played by Nasim Pedrad. “I feel for (Martin),” West said. “Maybe it’s just the black man in me.”

Replied Kardashian, “I also know what it feels like to have a black man in me.”
The sketch had viewers torn. Many posted angry remarks saying tackling the Martin case crossed the line. Others enjoyed the spoof of West and Kardashian, as well as the take on over-sensationalized media.
