"SNL" -- You Can't Beat Us

2/21/2009 11:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kenan Thompson"Saturday Night Live" will not let a silly little beating stand in the way of what could be a rating's bonanza.

Kenan Thompson told Us Magazine Chris Brown is more than welcome on "SNL" anytime, saying, "We don't care about scandal. We just care about what brings us ratings! If we had them both on the show, that would be crazy."

But wait, there's more. Kenan says, "I know how women can get when you get a text message from another female, so I'm just saying -- you have to learn that you can't put your
hands on a female."

Kenan calls the whole Rihanna thing "an unfortunate situation."

There's a Latin phrase, res ipsa loquitur. Translation: The thing speaks for itself.

Ok, this is one I'll gladly turn the TV off for when I see him.

I won't be missing anything, either.

So it's okay for a man to hit a woman? Even more okay if it's a Black man beating on a Black woman? You have got to be kidding! People who are defending Chris Brown's actions are an embarrassment. They have no morals and they're ignorant of the law. There is no excuse for what he did. None. And Rihanna needs to grow up and do the right thing--which is to testify against him. There are reports that she is "torn" about testifying because she still loves him. And some people think this is "cute." It's not cute. If Rihanna doesn't testify, how will she feel when he beats her up again, as he surely will, or when he hurts or even kills another woman? Will she still be torn then?

If Keenan is as smart as he is talented, that must mean not at all. He's not smart and he's not talented. SNL is no way as good as it used to be, but it still has its funny moments. But Keenan is not in any of them. Get a day job, please.

Keenan is as smart as he is talented--which means not at all. His comments are offensive. He's the least funny guy on a not-so-funny SNL. So it's okay for a man to hit a woman, Keenan? Even more okay if it's a Black man beating on a Black woman? You have got to be kidding! There is no excuse for what he did. None. And Rihanna needs to grow up and do the right thing--which is to testify against him. There are reports that she is "torn" about testifying because she still loves him.

Correction    

Am I missing something here? As sexist as his comment is about "I know how women get when you get a text...." still, he clearly says "you have to learn not to put your hands on a female."

So he is saying it is NOT alright to hit someone. Some of the comments posted here do seem a bit racist, as if the black community is the only place where women get knocked around. Women are beaten every single day by men of every race, creed, nationality, income level, you name it.

And as for TMZ's lame attempt at using Latin.........give it up, you guys are not that smart, and even those who love to get the scoop from you know that you are not that smart.

The face of a future unemployed man.
What an absolute idiot.
He and Terrance Howard are idiots.
Howard talked his way out of a guaranteed blockbuster movie and this unfunny fool who is lucky to have that job has just talked his way out of it.

Chris Brown is not a bad guy just because he beat up Rhianna.
Chris, needs help just like Rhianna does. He is the type of person that cannot control his emotions, that does not make him a bad guy. It is something that he cannot help. There are alot of people out there with this problem.
He is probably one of the nicest people in the world but cannot control his emotions, or anger. Its like a chemical imbalance. So, Chris is a victim as well.
But since he now is aware of it, and has done damage, ...if he does not seek the type of help for that...then he is not a victim anymore. You cant just go to your mom and your church for help...this is a real issue. He needs professional help. A doctor in that field will know what he needs, wether it be counceling, anger managment, or maybe even some meds to calm him down. I know people like this in my own family. Their temper can be easily set off, by anything that they dont agree with, and they become very violent. Its not something that is simple....he really needs to talk to a doctor. Or he will have problems all his life, and may even go to prison.
To help himself , he really needs to see a doctor.

It's ironic Keenan THompson would say anything mysoginistic, considering 90% of his skits... he's dressed in drag. He's a drag queen. And his opinion is supposed to matter? LMAO.

EXACTLY! he was trying to be 'funny'/sarcastic in his comment, but clearly states his take on the situation. Some people need to learn how to read. Also, Its clear that abuse doesn't come in a color, everyone can experience it... It seems like all the prejudice people come to TMZ to comment sometimes... sad.

That's right Keenan. A brother is keeping it real. Nothing personal. Just business as usual. To the Rihannas and Chris Browns, "Those who throw punches should be prepared for the consequences".
