Saturday Night Live Lampoons Itself for Lack of Black Female Cast Members

This week’s Saturday Night Live cold open went for the meta humor, taking on the controversy over the show’s lack of black female actresses in a very self-depreciating manner. For the sketch, host Kerry Washington, a black woman, portrayed Michelle Obama talking to her husband before a state dinner. The president’s press secretary Jay Carney entered the room to tell the couple that Oprah Winfrey had just arrived, and Michelle had better go get changed. While asking why, “Michelle” realized Carney was referring to the actress Kerry having to change into costume to portray Oprah. And… fourth wall, officially broken.
