Saturday Night Live’s recent episode was definitely one for the books.
The hilarious sketch shows White people freaking out over Queen Bey’s performance, which shows her being, ahem, unapologetically Black.
It also features White people openly sobbing upon discovering that their favorite celebrities, including Beyoncé and Kerry Washington, are indeed Black.
“For White people, it was just another great week,” a voiceover announces as people going through their daily routines. “They never saw it coming. They had no warning. Then, the day before the Super Bowl, it happened.”
Upon watching Beyonce’s “Formation” video, which features the diva standing on a police car and a young hooded black boy dancing in front SWAT officers, the white people in the SNL sketch begin to freak out over not understanding the meaning of the song.
The clip then cuts to an apocalyptic big-city setting of people panicking over the video and leaving American in droves. One individual makes the discovery that other popular celebrities are black, including actress Kerry Washington. “But… she’s on ABC!”
