13 #SNLDumpTrump Tweets That Strike A Chord
While hundreds marched down Fifth Avenue and to the NBC Studios at Rockefeller Center to protest Donald Trump hosting SNL, others took to the Internet, using the hashtag #SNLDumpTrump on Twitter to voice their disapproval. And, like almost any other time in the history of Twitter, the Internet did not disappoint. And it's not we couldn't have seen this coming: Donald Trump is polarizing, to say the least. So, it comes at no surprise that many people were upset about Trump hosting Saturday Night Live this year. Whether it's his comments concerning immigration and the Mexican population, to his remarks about women and they way they look (because apparently that matters in the wonderful world of politics), the Republican party nominee has done more than his fair share to ensure that when the time came, people would boycott his SNL appearance.
From hilarious 140 character rants to serious and poignant concerns, twitter users the world over were quick to voice all the reasons why Donald Trump was the wrong man for the job. Here are some of the most striking tweets, calling for viewers to boycott SNL, boycott NBC, and boycott Trump in general.
There were more than a few tweets urging even the most die-hard of SNL fans to sit this episode out.
Take To The Streets
Multiple tweets showed video of protesters taking to the streets, marching in front of the NBC studios.
"Donald Trump has got to go, hey hey, ho ho."
Protesters chanted in both English and Spanish, yelling sayings like, "Dump Trump!" and "How do you spell racism? S-N-L".
Thanks Drake, We Think?
Because, the Internet.
Don't Even Hate Tweet
I'm in "Not watching" group. Usually I'd hate watch and live hate tweet, but I wouldn't even illegally live stream this mess. #SNLDumpTrump— The Happy Feminist (@HappyFeminist) November 8, 2015
You know something is serious when people are urging others to avoid hate-tweeting.
Watch Paint Dry
He means business.
Sit In Silence
Could you imagine Trump coming out to nothing? Absolutely nothing. No booing, heckling, or applause?
Racism Isn't Funny
The Real Enemy
Like we said: polarizing.
Leave it to John Leguizamo to tell it like it is.
No More Poking Holes
We used to watch SNL poke holes in racists, tyrants, closet fascists and anti-Americans. Now they invite them as hosts. #SNLDumpTrump— Rudy Zappa Martinez (@garagehero) November 5, 2015
This had to have hit even a few NBC executives in the feels.
