West recently explained his controversial views on slavery via Twitter in now-deleted tweets.
The rapper recently returned to Twitter and sparked controversy when he came out in support of Donald Trump. So naturally, Saturday Night Live wasn't going to pass up an opportunity to offer up a humorous take on the continuing Kanye circus.
Kenan Thompson's character is unable to contain his outrage.
While tiptoeing near an eerie corn field at night, a group of nervous friends - including a character played by SNL host Donald Glover - try their best to stay silent and not attract the murderous monsters lurking in the crops. First off, Donald Glover is, as always, the man, and he's hilarious in this sketch, especially his facial expressions and reactions to each successive and escalating bit of Kanye absurdity. "We should only talk about what's important", Bryant insists. "There are MUCH bigger things in this world that we should be anxious about and paying real attention [to]". Even the most staunchly quiet character in the parody, in the model of John Krasinski's Lee Abbott, can't help but to blurt out when learning that Kanye said slavery was a choice. The plot is the same with film, where if the people create any noise, monsters with acute sense of hearing go killing them within the next few seconds.
In addition to appearing in a number of other skits, Glover also performed two new songs - "Saturday" and "This Is America" - as Childish Gambino.
