Beyoncé's performance of her new single "Formation" at Super Bowl 50 was a direct homage to the Black Lives Matter movement. While Bey's halftime show was met with criticism from more-than-a-few white people, the video for "Formation," released February 6, has also been a sticking point for critics of the diva's new-found activism.
But on last night's episode of Saturday Night Live, much of that anti-Beyoncé sentiment got roasted. In a hilarious skit title "The Day Beyoncé Turned Black," white people are sent into a panic after finding out that the songstress isn't one of them, but actually a real, bonafide African-American. All it took was the "Formation" video to confirm the devastating news.
The skit shows the fabric of white-America crumbling: City streets are overrun with chaos as a narrator dramatically claims that “they never saw it coming." Some of Beyoncé's white fans have no recourse other than to hide beneath their desks and cower in fear.
We only hope that white people can cope.
