Worst Ever: SNL Korea & Blackface

These are the type of things that make me cringe and hang my head in disappointment. SNL has recently decided to start up their long running live sketch comedy show in South Korea, which can be a potentially good thing. But the writers for the new international branch, in their infinite wisdom, made a very serious faux paus by running a bit incorporating the infamous practice of blackface. Yea…, they used make up to paint up their faces and bodies to portray themselves as African-Americans in a parody of Dreamgirls. Not… cool. I know it’s a different culture, with different standards of humor – but in the end it’s still a disrespectful and ignorant thing to do. Sadly, they aren’t the only ones to pull these type of shenanigans.

Worst. Ever.
