“The Day Beyoncé Turned Black” SNL Skit Takes On “Formation”
Beyoncé Is Black…Who Knew?
Beyoncé has been taking a lot of heat for her new “Formation” video and performance during the NFL halftime super bowl show. It was largely white people who had a panic attack when they saw that their beloved neutral singer drank the “black juice” and created a song and video that empowered Black people. Beyoncé didn’t wake up one morning and decide she was going to be black (she has always been black) but she never took a public stance when it came to the “Black Lives Matter” movement or police brutality. Her new single and video took aim at all of that and empowered black people at the same time. It was not well received by white media and Saturday Night Live took all the hysteria surrounding the video and created, “The Day Beyoncé Turned Black.” The absolute sad part about the video is that while it’s funny this is exactly how white people reacted when she dropped her new single. So while we can laugh because the skit pokes fun at the reaction “Formation” has had on white people, the underlying truth is not joking matter. Watch the video below…
