Saturday Night Live Takes on the Virginia Blackface Scandals (Video)

ICYMI, last night, Saturday Night Live mocked the recent blackface scandals in Virginia’s State government.

In the skit, Virginia state representatives (Halsey, Kenan Thompson, Pete Davidson, Beck Bennett, Mikey Day, Alex Moffat, Cecily Strong, Kyle Mooney) call an emergency meeting in response to multiple blackface controversies.

The best line, mocking the complete cluelessness of both Governor Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring, is Beck bennett’s character who states “What if blackface was part of your costume of a black person?”
