My complaint:

I was beyond disturbed to find Dave Chappelle making explicitly sexist comments on SNL on the night that our first woman VP was elected (no mention by him of that). Here is a quote from him: “that’s why women make half. I don’t know what it is. Half, maybe 70 percent, whatever it is, it’s too much.” Can you imagine if that “joke” had been made with “women” replaced with “black men”, especially on the night of Obama’s election. There would have been widespread outrage and demands for Dave’s head. SNL is this really the best you could do for women on a historic night? His comments seemed calculated to counteract the victory of a woman VP.

Justified complaint?

Suggested solution:

Do not have material saying women deserve less pay than men. Announce that you do not agree with the comments that were made. Do not ever invite Dave Chappelle back to host.
