Bill Burr, stand-up comedian and former “Breaking Bad” actor, started a firestorm on Twitter – to poke fun at everyone from white women to gays in his first “Saturday Night Live” monologue .The Netflix star called white women “sluts” while claiming that they “sort of hijacked the awakened movement.”

“The revival movement was supposed to be about people of color who were not getting opportunities. … Somehow white women threw their Gucci feet over the fence of oppression and got stuck at the head of the line, ”said the creator of the Netflix animated show. “F is for the family” by opening Saturday “SNL” on television.

“I have never heard such a complaint in my life from white women,” Burr said.

He also made fun of homosexuals – suggesting that their struggle had nothing to do with racial minorities ”.

“June is Gay Pride month. It’s a bit long, don’t you think, for a group of people who have never been enslaved? Burr said. “How did they have the whole month of June?

“Blacks were in fact enslaved. They have February, they have 28 days of cloudy weather. … How about hooking them up with July? They are people from Ecuador.

Critics lit Twitter tearing Burr apart.

“Bill Burr is a garbage can and always has been a garbage can”, @emrazz, aka feminist next door, was bubbling.

“Not because he doesn’t raise valid criticisms in some of his comedies, but because he has always used his ability to point them out to the detriment of change and to the benefit of himself, and he can f – k in the sun for him. ”

@ AbbysDad3 wrote, “The jokes were in bad taste, not funny. As a gay man in an interracial relationship, we both got offended and shot the channel. Who approved this monologue? ”

The funny guy also came out swinging against the COVID-19 mockers as he opened the show, joking, “Take out your weak cousin with asthma, I don’t care.

“It’s too crowded… It keeps you from reproducing yourself,” Burr said.

@HoyaLikeThat replied, “As a ‘weak cousin with asthma’ I found your callous and appalling monologue. You don’t know what it’s like to live with this disease – especially in the age of COVID. This is not a joke. It is a frightening reality for which I must be vigilant every day. Show a little class and sensitivity ”

Burr ignored the controversy, tweeting dimanche “Thanks to Lorne, the cast, everyone at @ nbcsnl… No words to describe how fun this experience was!” and calling it the “night of my life!”

He also had supporters who tweeted their praise for his act.

” Hi. I’m a white woman and I think your monologue was hilarious and true @billburr. Ignore the easily offended snowflakes! wrote @boozebudbeards.
