Was Conan's Opening Skit in Poor Taste?
Bitches are pissed off at Conan O'Brien's opening skit to last night's Emmy Awards.
The Emmy Awards began on an awkward note on the day of the deadliest American airlines flight in five years, which killed 49 in Kentucky. Host Conan O’Brien’s opening skit found the host visiting the sets of several highly rated shows, including 24, House and Lost.
The prerecorded opening skit began with O’Brien boarding a private plane to Los Angeles. Asked by a stewardess if he was nervous about hosting the show, O’Brien answered “Nervous? What could possibly go wrong?” The plane then crashed, with O’Brien later washing up on the set of Lost.
Los Angeles Times television columnist Scott Collins called the scene “cringe-inducing” and “of questionable taste.” Tim Gilbert, general manager of NBC’s Lexington, Ky., affiliate, WLEX, said he plans to ask NBC for an apology.
“We wish somebody had thought this through,” Gilbert told the Associated Press. “It’s somewhere between ignorance and incompetence.”
I personally was not offended by it. It didn't even cross my mind until I read this article. Bitches are too sensitive and need to get with it.
