Louis C.K. joked about racist chickens, how much he enjoys white privilege during ‘SNL’ monologue

Louis C.K. hosted Saturday Night Live for the fourth time this weekend, and his monologues tend to walk a fine line between edgy and downright inappropriate, like the time he joked about child molestation.

Louis C.K.’s monologue wasn’t quite that provocative on Saturday night. But consider this: His first joke was, “Why did the chicken cross the road? Because there was a black guy walking behind him.” Later, he talked about why he wanted to make love to a goat.

Said Louis C.K.: “I don’t care that you’re upset.” Nor has ever. Which might be one reason why he’s so bitingly funny.
