SNL Skewers “BBQ Becky” (Woman Who Called Cops on BBQ) With Cameo
The woman who called the police on a small group of black individuals having a barbecue, caught on video frowning in a pair of sunglasses as she angrily holds a phone to her ear, has gone viral for her absolute specifically awful presence. The woman, nicknamed “BBQ Becky”, has been photoshopped into scenes all over. Here is her calling the police on the Obamas, then her calling the police on MLK Jr. It’s dark and bleak, but it’s exactly the kind of joke this kind of thing deserves.
Well, SNL made their own live-action BBQ Becky when they had Aidy Bryant come on with an iPhone, with the famed scowl and sunglasses of the woman from the meme herself. You can see the gif above, but guess what? Aidy Bryant returned as BBQ Becky as a surprise face in the end credits in a splash of subtle David Letterman style weirdness. Watch Leslie Jones lose it. Is anyone a more charming breaker on the show than Leslie Jones? Remember her breaking in that Mother’s Day sketch last week? That was great!
