Society’s humor standards have evolved over time, leading Saturday Night Live alum Dana Carvey to apologize to Sharon Stone for a sketch deemed “offensive” from her 1992 hosting gig.

Carvey made amends during Stone’s appearance on the Fly on the Wall With Dana Carvey and David Spade podcast.

Reflecting on the sketch, titled Airport Security Sketch, where Carvey portrayed an Indian security guard, he acknowledged the inappropriateness by today’s standards, stating, “We would be literally arrested now.”

Carvey publicly apologized for the sketch, recognizing it as a product of its time. Stone, while not bothered by it, agreed it was created in a different era.

The duo shared a mutual understanding of the comedic nature of the sketch, with Carvey emphasizing there was no malice in it, and Stone acknowledging her willingness to be the butt of the joke.
