NBC's comedy depiction of talkradio king Rush Limbaugh passed-out in vomit from drug abuse ignited backstage outrage at SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.
The animated sketch left one senior production source stunned and outraged, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
"Would we have done this to [John] Belushi? [Chris] Farley?" the source said on Sunday from New York.
The source asked not to be identified fearing retribution from SNL's executive producer Lorne Michaels.
"We've had more fu**ing drug addicts on this show through the years... more tragedy. I have lost count. Did we ever have some laughs about Robert Downey Jr.'s serious drug addiction?"
