'Saturday Night Live' honors DMX, takes jabs at Chauvin trial | USA TODAY 1


Carey Mulligan hosted 'SNL' and got a surprise visit from her famous husband.

"Saturday Night Live" paid tribute to two recent deaths that touched the "SNL" family: one of the show's original writers from the '70s, Anne Beatts, and rap legend DMX.

Cast member Chris Redd held up a sign that read "R.I.P. DMX" during the end credits of Saturday's episode, and at another point, a graphic flashed onscreen that read "DMX" next to his photo.

The legendary rapper, whose real name was Earl Simmons, died Friday at age 50 after suffering a heart attack a week prior.

He appeared as musical guest on "SNL" in 2000 on an episode hosted by Julianna Margulies.

      When you die I hope others don’t cynically use your worse attributes to describe you like that’s the whole worth of the life you lived. I really do. It’s a sick and silly statement.

  4. Jabs at a trial is just stupid … SNL is not that funny anymore.. it used to be great… as for DMX I still listen to a few of his songs.. He’s definitely in a better place.. Let’s just hope when all our times come it’s as fast as possible..Sad thing is , it usually isn’t … At least he didn’t take weeks or mounths to die.. either way rip to everybody who has passed..You’re all missed

    How is that for DMX? Did that cop beat DMX or something or is this another racist acting like others are racist

      Hi there how are you doing

  7. U would….promote another druggie and hate on cops.. Thats real classy..

  8. Putting a black man in a dress again

  9. If Chauvin does walk away because it’s been demonstrated the knee was not on the neck for the full eight minutes, the medical examination shows enough drugs to kill an experienced resistant individual what then?

  11. DMX died from a heart attack, caused by a drug overdose. Did Chauvin cause that too?

    DMX died from the “vaccine”. They knew it would be easy to pin “overdose” on him since that’s his background. Also, Im noticing a pattern on SNL: Putting black men in dresses. Kevin Hart, The Rock, now Cudi? I get it now… Humiliation ritual. Say what you want.. I KNOW what’s up! 💯

  13. They should be taking jabs at that clown DMX… He was WEAK!!! lol
