Comedy Legends & Icons - Post By Amanda Shaw

Woody Harrelson divided Saturday Night Live viewers over his monologue that Elon Musk calling it A “Good One.”

Harrelson said about an alleged film script he read. “So, the movie goes like this: the biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force all the people in the world to stay locked in their homes, and people can only come out if they take the cartel’s drugs and keep taking them over and over,” said Harrelson.

Harrelson’s punchline followed with the host adding, “I threw the script away. I mean, who is going to believe that crazy idea? Being forced to do drugs? I do that voluntarily all day long.”

Twitter CEO, Elon Musk, called Harrelson’s monologue a “good one,” as a debate sparked on social media following the late-night show airing.

In another tweet, Musk congratulated the NBC show tweeting, “So based. Nice work @nbcsnl!” As the media reported on Harrelson’s monologue, social media users that are conspiracy theorists began to make note of it with Musk responding to a user saying, “Maybe they don’t realize that their propaganda is wrong?”

Neither SNL nor Harrelson has commented publicly on the monologue.

Harrelson, who got his start on Cheers, has been known to occasionally share conspiracy theories. In the past, Harrelson has publicly questioned the legitimacy of 9/11 as a terrorist attack, claimed there may be a connection between 5G networks and COVID-19 and has called wearing masks during the pandemic “absurd.”

In Canada, over 80 per cent of the population (excluding Quebec) is fully vaccinated, according to statistics provided by the Canadian government.
