“SNL” Sets Next Three Shows: Maybe Skip March 30th with Ramy Youssef and Travis Scott


“Saturday Night Live” has set its next three shows. April 6th brings Kristen Wiig and Raye. April 13th is Ryan Gosling and Chris Stapleton.

But the most upcoming show, I will skip.

For March 30th, they’ve got Ramy Youssef hosting, and Travis Scott as musical guest.

Two years ago, Scott’s Astroworld Festival left 10 people dead and 25 injured. Scott settled massive lawsuits with all the people involved. He’s since been rewarded with fame and money. I’m sure the families of the victims will not be watching, either.

Youssef is starring in “Poor Things.” He would have been an appealing host until he opened his yap on the Oscars red carpet Sunday. He wore a pin for a ceasefire in the Mid East, advocated for a ceasefire, and spoke against Israel. He said nothing about the hostages or the disgusting violent attack on Israel last October 7th.

Here’s Youssef’s video. Turn off “SNL” on the 30th if you disagree with this ridiculous stand.


Ramy Youssef wears an Artists for Ceasefire pin to the Oscars: “We’re calling for an immediate, permanent ceasefire in Gaza. We’re calling for peace and lasting justice for the people of Palestine.”
