Chris Rock hosted Saturday Night Live this week and really shook things up with an opening monologue that featured jokes about the Boston Marathon and the 9/11 memorial Freedom Tower. Rock asked if the building's corporate sponsor was "Target" before going on a long rant about how he'd never go into the building, not even"if Scarlett Johansson is buck naked on the 89th floor in a plate of ribs." He ended the bit with some jokes about the commercialization of Christmas that somehow managed not to seem stale.

Of course, Twitter exploded with folks upset that the comic used the two terrorist attacks as the basis for a standup routine. Check out the entire performance below and decide for yourself.
