Pete Davidson Compares R. Kelly Sexual Abuse Scandal to Catholic Church
Pete Davidson hit the desk during SNL’s Weekend Update and compared R. Kelly to the Catholic church.
He starts the skit by saying that R. Kelly is a monster and should go to jail forever.
He continued, if you support the Catholic church, isn’t that the same thing as being an R. Kelly fan? He went on to say that the only difference is one’s music is significantly better than the other.
The other day my mom said she was going to mass and I said OK I’m going to listen to the Ignition remix.
Someone asked me how could I listen to R.Kelly after what he did, I said, ‘with headphones?’
He wrapped up the skit with a solution, anytime any of us listen to a song or watch a movie made by an accused serial predator you have to give a $1 to charity that helps sexual assault survivors. I’ve already donated $142 and that’s just from the Ignition remix alone.
Comments on social media poured in
the catholic church is the largest criminal syndicate in the world responsible for the rape & torture of countless children over thousands of years~doors should be kicked in then shuttered,assets levied & all employees should be arrested & prosecuted;starting with @Pontifex 🛑

Laura, as a Catholic my Church did not protect the flock! How?! Pete is not wrong, especially with years of coverup.
