SNL Writer Receives Criticism For Slavery Jokes On Weekend Update! Read The Response From Ebony.com's Senior Editor HERE!

lesliejones

Did she just cross a line, or was she pushing the envelope as all good comedians should do?

On last Saturday's SNL, writer Leslie Jones gave a controversial performance while on Weekend Update:

"See, I’m single right now, but back in the slave days, I would have never been single. I’m six feet tall and I’m strong, Colin. Strong! I mean, look at me, I’m a mandingo…I’m just saying that back in the slave days, my love life would have been way better. Massah would have hooked me up with the best brotha on the plantation, and every nine months I'd be in the corner having a super baby. Every nine months I'd be in the corner just popping them out: Shaq, Kobe, LeBron, Kimbo Slice, Sinbad…I would be the No. 1 slave draft pick."

We can understand how this might spark an uproar, but isn't this making fun of slavery?

Well, one person who did not like this segment was the Senior Editor of Ebony.com, Jamilah Lemieux:

Saturday Night Live is bringing the big boys AND girls to play!

It has just been announced that the fabulous, Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron will be hitting the stage to host for the second time on May 10th!

Accompanying her will be musical guest The Black Keys, who will be making their third appearance on the late night show.

But that's not the only treat SNL fans have in store for them! Andy Samberg will be returning to his former place of employment to become the host with the most.

He will be hosting on May 17th with musical guest St. Vincent.

We're not sure what he'll be planning for his big homecoming, but hopefully it involves a special treat nicely wrapped up in a box. LOLz!

SNL's Female Cast Members Get Hilariously SeXXXy For Cosmo — But Spark Controversy As A Result!

Do you think this spread is totally silly or totally controversial???

Most ladies featured in Cosmopolitan magazine stick to a strictly sexy script.

But when the fabulously funny women of Saturday Night Live landed their very own spread, they did things a little differently.

The end results? Silly and fun, just like their personalities!

In each photo, the cast poses as if they were in a sultry lingerie shoot. Then upon further inspection, they all add their subtle little twist — Cecily Strong gnaws on her torn tee, Sasheer Zamata squeezes a bust’s bust, Kate McKinnon looks like she’s about to propose to pizza, and more.

Some have already jumped to the conclusion that the photo shoot is both sexist and racist, which would make the seemingly innocent spread not very funny after all. But lately, it seems like magazines tend to come under fire every time they try something different!

What do U think??

There is NOTHING funny about kids on drugs…
