'SNL' Takes on Cast Member's Controversial Quip

by Saturday Night Live 3:57 mins

Kerry Washington breaks a sweat addressing Kenan Thompson's comment about a lack of African American, female comedians. Even Al Sharpton shows up. Kerry gets triple duty portraying Michelle Obama, Beyonce, and Oprah in the same sketch. This dizzying task is interrupted by a parade of Matthew McConaugheys, a wink to the abundant supply of white males in the cast. The sketch even has a show disclaimer acknowledging the lack of diversity among the ranks. Sharpton appears at the end and asks “What have we learned from this sketch?” The answer? “As usual, absolutely nothing.”
