SNL pulls Safelite AutoGlass parody

  • The Oct. 7 fake commercial in which Beck Bennett plays a stalkery Safelite AutoGlass technician was swiftly criticized on Twitter by the company. "Although we can take a joke, this one was a step too far. Our techs are our heroes. #notcool,” the company tweeted, adding in another tweet: “We weren't involved in creating it and we're really disappointed in @NBCSNL for airing it.” The parody has now been pulled from SNL reruns and on Hulu and YouTube. NBC couldn’t be reached for comment, but SafeLite tells Decider: “When the SNL sketch featuring Safelite first aired, we expressed our disappointment with how it negatively portrayed our people. It was SNL’s decision to remove the content, and they have not shared their reasons behind that decision.”
