Note: This video, aired in April 2017, stars comedian Louis C.K. who subsequently confessed to sexual misconduct in the workplace. The question of whether we can separate art from its creators is a fraught one. With this particular video, knowledge of Louis C.K’s misdeeds makes the “heroism” of his slacker character, Scott, all the more mock-able.
How similar is SNL’s point to the argument made by Malcolm Gladwell about low-risk #activism?
