WATCH: ‘Django Uncrossed’ Spoofs Quentin Tarantino Film; Stars Christoph Waltz
Was this Saturday Night Live’s most blasphemous sketch ever? We’ll let you be the judge after the break.
If you were worrying that NBC’s live comedy sketch show was losing its luster, we kindly point you in the direction of “Djesus Uncrossed,” which puts Jesus Christ (played by host Christoph Waltz) in a Quentin Tarantino-directed, ultra-violent revenge flick akin to Django Unchained.
The SNL parody is sure to offend many Christians (who are already fuming about Pope Benedict XVI’s retirement) as the sketch depicts the Son of God opting to kick the asses of those who crucified him over sitting at the right hand of the Father.
Websites such as Breitbart.com, publications like World News Daily, and even The Los Angeles Times all questioned (or branded) the sketch as “controversial” only hours after it aired. Slate took a slightly more optimistic view, calling the sketch “one of their more amusing bits of blasphemy in quite some time.”
