Pretty, fairly, fairly terrible.
“Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Larry David is in sizzling water with “Saturday Night Live” viewers following a joke in regards to the Holocaust that is being hailed as insensitive.
“I’ve always been obsessed with women, and I’ve often wondered if I’d grown up in Poland when Hitler came to power and was sent to a concentration camp, would I be checking women out in the camp? I think I would,” he stated in his monologue.
“However, there are no good opening lines in a concentration camp.”

Not lengthy after the questionable joke left David’s lips, reactions started pouring in on Twitter.
Some acknowledged merely that the joke was “not cool,” whereas others had harsher critiques of the “Seinfeld” creator’s witticism.
The controversy didnn’t finish there.
David, 70, additionally took a second to the touch upon the Harvey Weinstein scandal, stating that he felt it was giving different Jewish people a nasty rap.

He advised that “a very disturbing pattern” of Jewish predators was rising in Hollywood.
“Not all but many of them are Jews,” he stated in reference to allegations in opposition to Weinstein, Brett Ratner and others accused of badual badault. “I don’t like when Jews are in the headlines for notorious reasons. I want ‘Einstein discovers the theory of relativity,’ ‘Salk cures polio.’ What I don’t want? ‘Weinstein took it out.'”
“I consistently strive to be a good Jewish representative,” he continued. “When people see me I want them to say, ‘Oh, there goes a fine Jew for you!'”
The joke was one in all two Weinstein references made in the latest “Saturday Night Live” episode. The first, delivered throughout the chilly open, was decidedly much less controversial.
