This doesn’t look good for Melissa Villase├â┬▒or!

As we previously reported, Saturday Night Live finally added a Latina comedienne to their cast list by hiring the America’s Got Talent standout for Season 42. Unfortunately, it seems as though this historic hire may already be plagued with scandal as the impressionist was blasted on Twitter on Wednesday over racist posts.

Smh. Melissa’s social media account was first questioned by one user, named Aura Bogado, after the funny lady deleted around 2,000 posts in five days. At the time, Bogado noted:

Tragically, after a bit of digging, Aura dug up several offensive tweets the soon-to-be SNL star forgot to delete. By Wednesday, fans had uncovered countless, seemingly racist notes (below).

Obviously, Aura and her fellow internet users weren’t thrilled with Villase├â┬▒or’s behavior as they commented:

We mean, we can’t really blame people for being pissed. Nonetheless, it’ll be inneresting to see if the NBC variety show stands by their latest addition.

Stay tuned!
