  1. I guess it’s been a while since I watched the Ellen Show because I seem to remember that she always avoided gay topics (other than occasional references to Portia). Nice to see that has changed, and yes now I’m crying too ugh

  2. King princess killed it on SNL ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  3. I’d pay good money to see a “Set It Off” sequel with Jada as the HBIC of an all-female gang and Young Ma as her heir apparent. Produced by Lena Waithe, of course.

    • Sigh.. another Daily Mail link (Thompson/Streep) PLEASE don’t give those right-wing fuckers traffic!!

    • As long as Young M.A’s character lives because I barely handled that as a child and don’t want to find out how adult me would handle that in the current climate.

  4. Suddenly I want some family reunion comedy with the itty bitty baby gay cousin meeting their Auntie played by Lena and their third cousin played by Young M.A. for the first time and just being too gay to function as one of the comedic subplots.
    Like being sat between them during a meal and one of the elders trying to ask them questions about their college apps or hobbies or something but the poor girl is just too sweaty and nervous to carry a conversation.

  5. Don’t really know where’s best to ask this but is it possible to indicate when a hyperlink is for the daily mail? I hate accidentally contributing to their ad revenue! Otherwise excellent work as always :)
