According to NewsOne, comedian Leslie Jones is having a difficult Sunday after the reaction that she received to her “Super Slave” commentary on SNL‘s Weekend Update this weekend.

The skit fell flat immediately and to many it felt uncomfortable at best. It truly seemed as though Jones was pandering to the audience.

Says NewsOne,

“Jones joked that usefulness should be the new standard of beauty, setting up for the painfully embarrassing monologue that followed:

“The way we value Black beauty has changed. I’m single now, but back in the slave days, I would have never been single. I’m six feet tall and I’m strong. Look at me, I’m a Mandingo,” she said.

When Jones was asked by Jost, whom she called a “delectable Caucasian,” did she want to be a slave, she replied:

“I do not want to be a slave. I don’t like working for all you white people now and you pay me. But back in the slave days, my love life would have been better. Master would have hooked me up with the best brotha on the plantation and every nine months I’d be in the corner popping out super babies. I’d just keep popping them out. ShaqKobeLeBronKimbo SliceSinbad. I would be the number one slave draft pick. All of the plantations would want me” she said. “Now, I can’t get a brotha to take me out for a cheap dinner. Can a bitch get a beef bowl?!!””


Yeah…that happened. Take a look at the painful “comedy” below.


Jones got very upset and extra defensive over her reviews and took to her Twitter account to address all those dragging her for being a sellout or worse.

    I totally agree with you, Aaron. She has some serious issues, and the most serious is her low self-esteem. I say this because she willingly participated in yet another episode in which the sufferings of slaves were trivialized. She either doesn’t know or doesn’t care that the hypersexualized image of black women in slavery that was used to justify the wholesale rapes of both girls and women persists to this day. Black women weren’t just raped by white men, but they were also forced to breed with black men in slavery whether either one wanted it or not. That was done to increase the slavemaster’s bottom line by creating even more slaves. It’s sad that folks think they’re being clever, funny, and cutting-edge hip when all they’re doing is advertising their buffoonish ignorance. I also agree that it’s important to be discerning about whom we support among ourselves. There’s no reason to support someone else who contributes another minstrel act to the minstrel acts of rappers who call black women b’s and h’s. We can’t command respect if we don’t respect ourselves.

    I remember when this site posted that SNL gave her a job after the Kennan Thompson controversy and how happy the poster’s were, where is everyone now? She should have been fired on the spot the entire concept of the skit was disgusting and derogatory. We have to stop supporting people just because they are black and hold each other to a higher standard. She clearly has some mental health issues that she needs to address self hatred is real.
