In response to Quentin Tarantino's gruesomely gory revenge fantasy film, "Django Unchained," "Saturday Night Live" released a video called "Djesus Uncrossed," which, as you might imagine, spoofs Jesus' reincarnation.

Surprisingly enough, this little video upset some hardcore Christians, and some groups associated with the American Family Association have since pulled their ads from the online versions of the parody. The most recent group to renounce "Djesus?" Sears.

According to

Sears...did ask that its ads be moved from online showings of the sketch, according to this statement issued to EW: “We received customer feedback about our ads running on and Hulu in a rotation with other advertisers around the online rebroadcast of that particular SNL episode. We informed customers that it wasn’t supposed to happen, and while going forward we may advertise on the broadcast, we’ve taken steps to ensure that our commercials do not air online exactly as they did in this situation.”
