Larry David Makes Holocaust Joke During ‘SNL’ Monologue, Catches Flack on Social Media (Video)

“Curb Your Enthusiasm” creator and star Larry David hosted “SNL” this week and concluded his opening monologue with a crack about trying to pick up women in a Nazi concentration camp, a joke that didn’t go over all that well with many members of the audience, both in the room in New York and viewers at home.

David make the joke just after bemoaning the fact that so many of the man in Hollywood being accused of sexual harassment and assault, like Harvey Weinstein, are Jewish.

“I have always, always been obsessed with women. And I have often wondered, if I had grown up in Poland when Hitler came to power and was sent to a concentration camp in my 20s, would I still be checking out the women in the camp?” David said, with this opening part of the bit being greeted by laughter that was of a decidedly different tenor than usual.

“I think I would. Hey Shlomo, hey, look at that one over by Barracks 8. Oh my god, what a knockout. Is she gorgeous or what” I’ve been eyeing her for weeks. I would love to go up and say something to her. Of course, the problem is, there are no good opening lines in a concentration camp. How’s it going? They treating you okay? You know, if we ever get out of here, I’d love to take you out for some latkes. Do you like latkes? What? What did I say? Is it me or the whole thing? It’s because I’m bald, isn’t it?”

The response on Twitter was chronicled in a Twitter Moment, which you can view here.

It wasn’t uniformly negative, of course. The “both sides” of the response can basically be summed up with these two tweets:
