Gays Acting Gay on SNL is Insulting and a Yawn

by Accidental Bear

Elton John gets the job done on SNL, but he should have stayed home. Instead he exhibited gay stereotypes reinforcing the opinions of the world, that gays are tacky, shallow and flamboyant. I did enjoy the flashback comments to his early music. I do my best to ignore Elton anytime after 1980. His performance on SNL  reminds me of early Hollywood when black actors played over the top ridiculous black stereotypical characters. It’s like gay actors put on a gay face just to make people laugh.

Queerty’s 2 cents:

There was no way Elton John was going to host Saturday Night Live and not whip out some queeny segments. But that is the entirety of Sir Elton’s comedic appeal, isn’t it?

But Elton’s opening monologue, which included plenty of chatter about his new son Zachary, was quite touching. And funny!
