SNL takes on Batman's war on crime in biting sketch
Chance the Rapper’s got a problem with Batman.
In one of the night’s funniest sketches, Chance, Leslie Jones, Chris Redd, and Kenan Thompson played citizens of Gotham who were invited to attend a Thanksgiving event at Bruce Wayne’s (Beck Bennett) manor and proceeded to complain about the Dark Knight’s excessive war on crime — specifically his penchant for injuring people from their neighborhoods and hanging them from gargoyles for minor offenses.
“You know how Batman is tough on crime?” Chance asked Bruce, who “knows” Batman. “Well, can you tell him to cool it down in our neighborhoods? Somebody’s gotta do something about him. I mean, he broke my best friend’s jaw in two places and all he did was steal a TV. That’s excessive!”
Of course, Bruce Wayne tried to make excuses for his alter-ego’s use of force, saying Batman fights crime wherever he sees it. “Well, it just seems like he’s in our neighborhood all the time,” replied Chance.
In the end, the group decided that maybe it was time to take the fight to Batman. “I hope somebody kicks Batman’s ass,” said Jones, with Thompson adding. “We should all jump him, the whole community. Teach him a lesson.”
“Yeah, leave him hanging by his drawers for a change!” said Chance.
Sounds like Batman better tighten up the Batcave’s security…
