The women of SNL sing anti-sexual-harassment anthem 'Welcome to Hell'

'SNL' Female Castmembers Sing 'Welcome to Hell' Sexual Harassment Song

With the countless stories of powerful men in the media like Matt Lauer and Harvey Weinstein dominating the airwaves with sexual harassment claims against them, it was only a matter of time before Saturday Night Live did a song about it, and this one really takes the cake.

"Welcome to hell, this isn't news, Yeah it ain't fair, pull up a chair, welcome to hell", they sang. Together with host Saoirse Ronan, cast members Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong, and Kate McKinnon joined forces to sing about the "full nightmare" of being a woman when "all these big, cool, powerful guys are turning out to be habitual predators". And now they're giving everyone else a warm welcome to their "freaky, nasty, it's button-under-the-desk bad" life-a not-so-subtle reference to NBC's own Matt Lauer, who was sacked from the Today show for inappropriate sexual behavior on Tuesday and allegedly had a button installed under his desk to lock his office door from the inside. "We just travel in a pack for safety", they remind us.

"My dad gave me a pink gun, so. there's a lot there". Leslie Jones also points out during the sketch that women of color face sexual assault and harassment at much higher rates.
