‘It was your pervert here’: Chloe Fineman admits she was responsible for Sydney Sweeney’s controversial Hooters sketch on SNL

Chloe Fineman takes responsibility for the controversial Sydney Sweeney Hooters sketch. The Saturday Night Live cast member, known for her iconic impressions, talked about it on Dana Carvey and David Spade’s Fly on the Wall podcast.

Chloe Fineman Takes Responsibility for Sydney Sweeney’s Hooters Sketch Controversy

During the podcast, Chloe Fineman said, “Sydney Sweeney, I pitched the idea of ​​Hooters, where I thought, maybe work at Hooters, and we’re counting tips,” adding, “I get $20 and you’re like, Great, I made like $40,000. And then he texted me to write it, and then we got in a lot of trouble for sexualizing Sydney Sweeney.

Fineman admitted, “That was your pervert here!” The Megalopolis star said that she often feels uncomfortable when she presents ideas for sketches, especially ones that she doesn’t expect to be accepted.

“I’m the worst at it,” Fineman said, explaining that sometimes her silly ideas turn into sketches. Spade noted: “The host doesn’t know. They bite a fake pitch and you’re like, ‘Uh-oh.’

Carvey shared, “Some of that nonsense is the way the world is, which is why (in the Ryan Gosling sketch) Beavis and Butt-Head clash so hard. That Hooters sketch. “I think we’re just in the mood for madness.”


Sydney Sweeney received criticism for Hooters skit in March

In the sketch, Sydney Sweeney played a new Hooters waitress who received big tips because she was so attractive. The sketch received criticism on social media platforms such as X for focusing too much on Sweeney’s appearance. This was especially disturbing because Sweeney had previously spoken about the unwanted attention on her appearance.

Sweeney told Variety: “I see it and I can’t afford to have a reaction. I do not know how to explain it; “I’m still trying to figure it out for myself,” said the Everyone But You actress.People feel connected and free to talk about me however they want, because they believe that I have signed my life away. That I am no longer on a human level, because I am an actor. “That these characters are for everyone else, but me as Sydney is no longer for me.”

In her 2022 interview with Elle, Sweeney said: “I was very sexualized in high school because I had boobs, it’s kind of funny: what was said about (her character of) Cassie in Euphoria, the public decided to do it I in life real. Which I thought was crazy, because we were trying to show a character who was very hypersexualized and what the causes and effects of that might have been for her. And they just continue to do it.”

Although Sweeney asked Fineman to write the sketch, some social media users were upset at how the SNL episode seemed to objectify her.
