‘Saturday Night Live’ Mocks Jussie Smollett
Jussie Smollett probably had the worst weekend ever.
First comedian Chris Rock made fun of him and then Saturday Night Live. During a skit on SNL, Chris Redd played Jussie Smollett. In the skit Smollett is late to a meeting with ‘Empire’ executives. He swears he has a good reason for being late and reaches into a “bag of clues.” He pulls Crest Whitestrips, 3 letter K’s, car keys and a purple Teletubby. They reference his infamous saying, “I’m the gay Tupac” by putting a twist on it and saying “I am the gay Lee Daniels.” Lee Daniels, portrayed by Keenan Thompson, reminds “Smollett” that he [Lee Daniels] is the gay Lee Daniels. But it didn’t stop there. Jussie was also referenced on the Weekend Update. Colin Jost said, this week made me feel insane. All the people I was told were bad guys all got away with it, Donald Trump, Jussie Smollett and worst of all, Duke. We’ve seen many celebrities rebound from all types of bad publicity.
How do you see Jussie rebounding from this?
