I saw a clip of only that part. I didn't think it was funny. I do think George Carlin was right about delivery being critical to comedy.

I stopped watching SNL more than 15 years ago.

I am going to watch Maya Rudolphs new show 2 mondays from now.  She's funny.

The white folks were the ones laughing in the background.

I didn't like the joke at all. It made ME feel uncomfortable. I watched Chris Rock's similar joke the way enslaved people were "bred" by whites, and it did not make me feel as angry. Her joke was delivered very distastefully.

First of all, Leslie Jones is funny as sh*t

secondly.. that Joke is an older joke she, I guess, modified to add the slave bit.
Not sure why she added the slave bit but… Hey, she wrote it… And SNL OK'd it…
so there's a form of creative freedom their that you can look forward to in future skits.

thirdly.. I wasn't offended but it could've been funnier.. But I'm still #TeamBigLez 

Again Scrutiny is at an all time high.

I didn't think it was gut busting funny but I'm not offended.
