Saturday Night Live just kicked off with a brand new season and its Dog the Bounty Hunter parody has angered some viewers. Comedian Pete Davidson appeared dressed up as Dog, and in the skit, it primarily kicks off with poking fun at recent rash school board meetings. Dog then shows up and immediately starts asking when Brian Laundrie is.
Dog has been newly involved in investigating in the search for Brian Laundrie, which has earned mixed reactions from the public. As such, SNL had to take up the opportunity to fit a Dog skit in there for their 47th season premiere.

One tweet that surfaced following the skit was, “Really disgusting and poor taste SNL doing a skit of Pete Davidson as Dog the Bountie Hunter looking for Brian Laundrie. The Petito family is still in mourning. You’re all sick making this a joke… you POS. Shame on you. Do Better. #SNL #distasteful” Another writes, “Poor taste on this. A young lady lost her life and we make a runaway coward famous. SMH”
However, there were also some people that loved the skit and even wanted more of the Dog parody. One Twitter user writes, “This is my petition to make Pete Davidson’s Dog the Bounty Hunter a recurring character on #SNL. That hair though”
