"SNL" Made The "First Black Movie For A White Audience"
"Are we going to get in trouble for this?"
Saturday Night Live pushed the envelope last night with a mock trailer for fake film White Christmas, a Tyler Perry-esque movie with a white cast.
It was "everything you'd expect from a black holiday movie, but with white people in it," the voice-over said.
"A gun-toting grandma..."
"...and a guy wearing a necklace over a turtleneck."
"The Macklemore of movies," Essence magazine said in the trailer.
Though the skit had its moments, not everyone was comfortable with the subject matter, which has been contested this year.
