Besides the Internet breaking last weekend when Beyoncé snatched all of our edges, it was clear that White people were perturbed. No actually, they were downright terrified of the unapologetic blackness Beyoncé displayed in her new video for the song “Formation” and her subsequent Super Bowl performance. Apparently, SNL caught the fuss and made a hilarious skit about it called “The Day Beyoncé Turned Black.”
Here are a couple of the best lines from the skit:
First the ominous narrator opens saying “For White people, it was just another great week. They never saw it coming. They had no warning. Then, the day before the Superbowl. It happened…” Then, they explain that Beyoncé’s blackness is shocking White people everywhere.
There’s an office scene where a White woman opens with, “Guys I don’t understand this new song.” Then, a White male says “Hot sauce in my bag swag? What does that even mean?” Another White male responds, “This is not for us!” Finally, the young woman exclaims, “But usually everything is!”
You have to watch the entire skit to understand the hilarity. But, its accuracy is scary.
