SNL parodies the public reaction to Beyonce's "Formation" video.
Beyonce's "Formation" video and subsequent performance at the Super Bowl halftime show has drawn criticism from several conservative commentators, notably Rudy Giuliani, who called the song/performance an “attack” on the police. Saturday Night Live lampooned all this "Formation"-induced hysteria in a sketch that aired this weekend, "The Day Beyoncé Turned Black."
"The Day Beyoncé Turned Black" is styled after your generic disaster movie trailer. "It began like any other day..." but then the "Formation" video drops, and the world as white people knew it crumbles before their eyes.
“‘Hot sauce in my bag, swag... What does that mean???” screams one concerned white person.
