'SNL' Owns 'Formation' Haters With 'The Day Beyoncé Turned Black'

by Gillian Fuller

With all this talk about Beyoncé's “Formation” — and how it's the new anthem for black women everywhere — you knew "Saturday Night Live" was going to comment on it.

But nobody knew it was going to be this good.

Saturday night's episode included a sketch titled — wait for it — “The Day Beyoncé Turned Black.”

The sketch essentially makes fun of the shock and awe surrounding Bey's video, sarcastically poking fun at the fact that people seemed surprised to see the singer own her blackness.

It's a wonderful, perfect "SNL" response to the “Formation” media frenzy.
