Goldberg gives golden advice to Haddish before SNL debut

Whoopi Goldberg is known for her one-of-a-kind humor, genius wit and unmatched snark, so when she was contacted by fellow comedian Tiffany Haddish for advice prior to her “Saturday Night Live” debut, Goldberg didn’t disappoint in delivering some golden advice.

According to HuffPost, when Haddish sat down with the New York Times to discuss her successful year, which included her role in the hit film “Girls Trip,” her stint hosting SNL — and being the first black female comic to do so — came up. In prepping for the show, HuffPost says Haddish found that Goldberg had appeared on the show, so she decided to give the veteran comic a call for some pre-show advice.

“I said, ‘Have you ever done ‘SNL’?’ Haddish asked Goldberg. “She said, ‘Only a sketch.’ I said, ‘You never hosted?’ And she said, ‘You the first, bitch, you better do a good job.'”

And a good job she did!

SNL highlights fashion ad pitfalls

Leave it to Saturday Night Live to satirize the fashion industry and its portrayal of non-super model women.

In their recent skit called, “Chonk,” the late-night sketch comedy show promoted a new store that sells clothing from sizes two to 28, reports The Cut. The ad begins with a seemingly inspirational message of promoting the faux store, calling women “beautiful,” “strong” and “gorgeous at any size.” But it quickly becomes “toxic,” says The Cut.

Interspersing empowering messages in between the rather offensive store name of “Chonk,” the skit points out the implicit negative messaging in clothing advertisements directed at women which make them feel “othered”or subpar.

Perhaps the best part of the video comes near the end, when Chonk introduces their male store, called “Normal Clothes,” emphasizing that men may be less likely to deal with the same negative messaging in fashion advertising.

While the video closes by mockingly saying, “Every woman’s a chonk,” we all know that in reality, every woman is everything the fake ad said in the beginning: beautiful, strong and gorgeous at any size.
