Religious Group Cries Foul on SNL’s Parody of “Django Unchained”
WASHINGTON (AP) — A Muslim advocacy group is deploring a Saturday Night Live skit that parodied "Django Unchained." Council on American-Islamic Relations spokesman Ibrahim Hooper says CAIR doesn't normally respond to comedic works, even those that are offensive. But Hooper says to portray Jesus as a mass murderer "goes beyond the pale." Hooper says the depiction was offensive not only to Christians, but those of other faiths, including Muslims, who revere Jesus.
