Aer Lingus Has Now Responded To THAT ‘Saturday Night Live’ Sketch

James Fenton

Last night, Saoirse Ronan hosted Saturday Night Live over in the States. The role is sure to give her profile a boost ahead of the release of her critically-acclaimed new movie Lady Bird and by all accounts she did quite well.

One skit left Irish people baffled though as she took part in a parody of an Aer Lingus flight that was simply crawling with Irish stereotypes.

Aer Lingus has now responded the the sketch by taking to Twitter to say:

“Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Ronan impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad”

Sad. It’s yet to be confirmed whether the airline has been hacked by Donald Trump but we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
