Jim Gaffigan's set about horse racing did not go over well with racing fans

Comedian Jim Gaffigan performed a controversial set on the “Sunday Morning” show on CBS this week, calling out horse racing and the Triple Crown as an excuse for gambling. His routine included jokes about the attire worn at the Kentucky Derby, the use of the whip, and even horseback riding in general.

“There's always an interview with the jockey,” joked Gaffigan. “'How did you do it?' 'Well, I whipped the horse, and then it ran.'”

Racing fans took to social media to express their disgust for the routine:
