Jon Lovitz, 1989
The writers were just begging someone to screw up with this one. Guest host Tony Danza brought his thick Brooklyn accent to a sketch called "Da War of Da Woilds
," in which the cast repeated the word "fonkin'" over and over until Lovitz was the unlucky one to slip. CORRECTION 1/22:
Jon Lovitz clarified to TheWrap via Twitter
that despite the sketch's language, he never dropped the f-bomb, and would've been fired if he had. "The censor for SNL, Bill Clotworthy, who was a very nice man, was quite clear on what we couldn’t say. We had to say “fonkin”... no slips allowed," Lovitz said. He added
that the sketch was deemed "too risky" and was never allowed to air again.
