Here’s what people are talking about over the weekend in pop culture -- and this weekend, it was all about the ways pop culture has intersected with Friday’s tragic shooting in Newtown, Conn.:

• Did you catch the classy opening of “Saturday Night Live” — with a children’s choir singing “Silent Night,” in a touching tribute to the children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary? [Rolling Stone]

• All the networks cut away to President Barack Obama’s remarks at Sunday’s memorial service in Newtown — and some fans of “Sunday Night Football” got really angry — and racist — about it. [Deadspin]

• Mike Huckabee can please shut his cakehole now. [The Huffington Post]
