Is it too soon for a Miss Colombia joke?
Jane Lynch doesn’t think so! The People’s Choice Awards host couldn’t resist making a joke about the much talked about announcement mishap that led to Miss Colombia almost winning the Miss Universe pageant.
Lynch brought comedian Tom Lennon onstage for a PCA, only to rescind the award — and give it to Miss Colombia. Yes, that Miss Colombia.
As CBS recapped on Twitter, “Man, I just read the card wrong,” @janemarielynch jokes while bringing Miss Colombia on stage at the #PCAs.” Hey, at least she’s getting work?
Of course, viewers had mixed feelings about the joke on Twitter. Some were totally over it: “Yup. It is a comedy skit; a really, really terrible comedy skit. Dude, I’m already bored with the Steve Harvey/Miss USA jokes. #PCAs.” Equally valid is the fear that we’ll have to go through this for the next month of awards season: “Can we leave the Steve Harvey jokes right here? If I have to watch one at every award show I’ll go insane #PCAs.”
Don’t worry, some people are still Team Colombia. One fan wrote, “S/O TO @janemarielynch AND #MissColombia FOR THAT FLAWLESS CLAPBACK WOW #PCAs.”
