Saturday Night Live cast member Bowen Yang lashed out at the Sara Lee corporation for defending their brand from off-color, homosexual jokes after SNL aired a gay-themed sketch on Saturday, Nov. 16.
According to TVLine.com, the sexually charged sketch featured musical host Harry Styles, pictured right, as Dillan, a social media manager who was called into a meeting for posting “off-brand activity” on the Sara Lee company Instagram account.
The off-brand activity included sexually suggestive comments on a Nick Jonas post, including “Wreck me daddy” and “Destroy me king.” There were also comments left by the @SaraLeeBread handle on a random Instagram user’s account, including sexually suggestive emojis that imply Dillan wants to “get railed to death”.
In one comment, Dillan tweeted:
“Feeling really depressed after threesome. What was supposed to be a fantasy ended up more rejection. Must get rid of toxic in community.”
Another Dillan comment read:
“A little moody after being used. Why do guys freak out when I ask them to spit in my mouth? Need a real king that can handle. It’s 8 am and have to go to hell job at sara lee. A little in my head after another threesome.”
The SNL comedy sketch was inspired by the ongoing fan belief that Styles, 25, is a repressed homosexual who is trapped in the closet.

Styles, a former member of the British boy band One Direction, has repeatedly said he is not a homosexual, but he does claim to be gender fluid and trysexual.
After the sketch aired on SNL, Yang, who is openly homosexual, took to Twitter.com to apologize to Sara Lee for using their brand in his comedy sketch without permission.
“Me and prodigal son [Julio Torres] made Mz. @Harry_Styles say queer nonsense,” he tweeted. “Very very very sorry to everyone at @SaraLeeDesserts.”
That should have been the end of it. But Harry Styles’ fans took to the @SaraLeeBread IG account and left 1,700+ mostly sexually suggestive comments, including “Wreck me daddy” and “Destroy me king.”
Understandably, the dessert corporation disabled the comment section on Instagram to protect their wholesome brand – which outraged Yang.
“Sara Lee disabling and deleting IG comments,” he tweeted. “Wow they really could have been THE bread for f*gs.”
A Sara Lee spokesperson responded to the criticism, saying:
“We didn’t participate in creating the skit and its content doesn’t align with Sara Lee Bread’s brand. But, we all know SNL pushes the envelope for laughs and we are taking it in stride.”
The spokesperson’s statement – that SNL’s homosexual “content doesn’t align with Sara Lee Bread’s brand” further angered the LGBT+ community.
Because homosexuality is rooted in narcissism, some homosexuals respond out of anger when asked to respect the opinions of others.
