Chris Rock jokes about 9/11, Boston Marathon on β€˜SNL’ [VIDEO]

Comedian Chris Rock’s return to Saturday Night Live kicked off with a controversial monologue in which he joked about the Boston Marathon, 9/11 and the new skyscraper on the site of the World Trade Center.

β€œI am never going in the Freedom Tower,” he said. β€œI don’t care if Scarlett Johansson is butt naked on the 89th floor in a plate of ribs.

β€œThere is no circumstance that will ever get me in that building. Are you kidding me? Does this building duck? What are they thinking? Who’s the corporate sponsor, Target?”

Rock also joked about the inevitable commercialization of 9/11.

β€œWe’re only five years away from 9/11 sales,” he said. β€œThat’s right, you’re going to hear it on the radio: β€˜Come on down to Red Lobster. These shrimp are $9.11.’”

The comedian also made a joke about the Boston Marathon bombings that killed three people and seriously injured many others.

β€œJust think about it β€” 26 miles!” he said. β€œYou’ve been training for a year, you finally get to the finish line, and somebody yells, β€˜RUN!’”
