FYI: This is the exact opposite of stepping up. Yes I know it's a joke. But also white folks ignore shit all the time & surprise! We here.

This entire clip was lost on me and low key offensive as per usual. 👀 but ya know, maybe in White World, cake actually solves problems 🤷🏽‍♀️

So y'all gonna "it was a joke" me to death when the ignoring of racism & oppression leads to my community's continued suffering? Cool.

The absurdity of insular action was what I thought was the joke. Not all the fluff of "calling out" Trump.

Is this the awkward point where I remind folks that I'm a comedian or nah?

Yep. The cake bit is funny, but the core of the piece was "don't show up," which is not great.

This isn't a GOOD joke bc (white) people are already doing this.

People would rather jump through hoops to defend the "innocent white" than think critically about racism as it relates to problematic faves

Since some of y'all are real mad that anyone critique this bit by SNL & Tina Fey, let's break down the "joke" shall we?

I thought the whole cake bit was funny, because I have the impulse sometimes (I stress eat). Drag queen joke and stay home msg ruined it

The premise of the bit is that if you're feeling frustrated and such about these hateful marches go buy a cake and eat your feelings.

And as you see all the bullshit, don't speak out in counter protests. But instead yell at the cake. While eating to soothe your anger.

There isn't any mocking about what inaction looks like. There isn't any jokes that ignoring this shit is dangerous. She says IGNORE them.

So while the idea of eating ones feelings is funny (I have a couple of jokes about that myself) the idea of inaction is never mocked.

Not only is inaction in the face of Nazis/white supremacists suggested, she reinforces this seriously at the end of the bit.

Maybe I need 2 watch it again, but I didn't read it as "ignore the problem." I've been drinking/stress eating since Nov. She spoke 2 me 1/2

I disagree. I took from it that her idea of action was to support local African American-owned and Jewish-owned businesses.
