Government Attic posted a collection of complaints lodged with the FCC about Saturday Night Live from 2008-2012. Selections follow.
Problem Description: There is a comedy skit which repeatedly referred to and then depicted anal sex, rape and bestiality involving a man dressed in a hairy, white Yeti costume ...
