Although Ronda's overall performance as a host on SNL was praised, the content of one of the sketches in which she participated has aggravated people on social media, with many feeling uncomfortable with the sketch.

Alongside Cecily Strong, she played a horny teacher who sleep with a 16-year-old boy who is very enthusiastic about the idea.

Judging by viewers' reactions on the Internet, it seems that SNL's original intention with the sketch has missed the mark somewhat. Some opinions have called out a double standard, arguing that a hypothetical "mirror-image" scene of two male teachers with an enthusiastic underage female student would be completely inconceivable.

Others were upset by perceived themes of statutory rape.

It is a tricky situation but any allusion to a topic such as statutory rape should always be handled carefully, even if SNL aims to be a comedic show where satiric or 'out-of-the-box,' uncomfortable humor is the norm. Clearly, the fact that so many people are upset is an indication that the scene was not appropriate.
