Louis C.K. has a background marked by conveying questionable Saturday Night Live Monologues. Notably in 2015, an extended piece about pedophiles —”From their point of view, it must be amazing, for them to risk so much” — led to an expected backlash on social media.
Instead of going political, C.K. opened with a joke about racist chicken. “Why did the chicken cross the road?” he asked. “Because there is a black guy walking behind him. And he was nervous. He was new to the city, this chicken, and he was like, ‘I feel like he is following me.’ But then he thought if I cross the road, then if he crosses the road, he’s definitely following me. So he crosses the road. And the black guy went home, he’s just living his life. And the chicken is like, ‘I’m such a racist.’” h/t thedailybeast
