As if there weren’t enough madness in America, you may’ve heard that nearly 100 female activists and actresses in France have signed an open letter stating that the #MeToo movement has gone too far, becoming a puritanical “witch hunt” unfairly maligning men.
Legendary French actresses Brigitte Bardot (Kate McKinnon) and Catherine Deneuve (Cecily Strong) appeared as “Weekend Update” guests to defend their controversial views on last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live.
Catherine, 74, slightly backpedals on her stance, explaining that she just doesn’t want to see romance die. Brigitte, 83, doubles down, exclaiming, “Free Harvey Weinstein! This is a real man.”
“A man is a man, and woman is a woman,” Brigitte says. “If they are not, they are homos.”
The aging blonde bombshell considers her point proven when “Weekend Update” co-host Colin Jost won’t accept Catherine’s invitation for a kiss. “He is homo, I told you,” she tells Catherine. “You know I love the homos. My only friends are you and birds and homos.”
“So many of the things this woman says are problematic,” Catherine says. True, but also hilarious.
