This weekend, Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish made history as the first black female stand-up comedian to host Saturday Night Live. Naturally, all eyes were set on Haddish’s monologue, and she certainly made the most of her platform to get several messages across.
She touched on her experience as child in the foster care system--"I want to thank anyone who paid taxes between 1990 and 1999, because if you hadn’t paid your taxes I wouldn’t be here today…I lived in group homes and my favorite show was SNL, you have no idea how hard it is to get a room of Hispanic and black kids to watch SNL.” She even briefly took it upon herself to deliver a blunt message in regard to the rising allegations of sexual misconduct in Hollywood.
“Listen, fellas. Listen. If you got your thing-thing out and she’s got all her clothes on, you’re wrong. You’re in the wrong,” she told the audience and the folks at home. Watch the clip in full below and catch Twitter’s top reaction’s to Haddish’s appearance on SNL after the jump.
