During Tiffany Haddish's historic night of hosting Saturday Night Live the comedian honored some of her fellow trailblazing women. One of the best skits saw Haddish take on the roles of Cardi B and Mary J. Blige for a fake screen test for Disney's upcoming remake of The Lion King. Obviously, Twitter was buzzing with some of the best reactions to Haddish's impressions:
Tonight, Haddish became the first ever black female comedian to host SNL in the show's 42 years on the air. While a few black women have taken on the position over the years such as Cicely Tyson, Oprah Winfrey, Queen Latifah, Taraji P. Henson, and Kerry Washington, none of them are strictly labeled as comedians.
In another segment during the episode, Haddish made a direct reference to John Landis's 1988 film Coming To America. Watch a clip from the skit in the video, below.
