Selena Gomez’s ‘SNL’ Chola Skit is Hella Funny!

This video will have you saying … ‘That’s Sad’!

The comedy sketch of Saturday Night Live (May 14th, almost 2 million views), hosted Selena Gomez and cast member Melissa Villaseñor playing two cholas – Sofia and Vanessa – who hosted a fictional public access talk show about the things happening around the city of Pico Rivera southeast of Los Angeles.

For this skit, Gomez and Villaseñor, who are both Mexican-American, wore plaid long-sleeve shirts, white tank tops, beige chino pants, black grommet belts, hoop earrings and had their hair teased, and wore noticeable makeup. Both spoke with thick accents and welcomed guests on the show to talk about books and rap music.

They also spoke about Sofia’s new eyeliner. “The eyeliner poked me in the eye,” Sofia said. “That’s sad.”

There were plenty of viewers who found the skit funny, especially those familiar with the Pico Rivera area.

There were plenty of viewers who found the skit funny, especially those familiar with the Pico Rivera area.

Others, however, called the skit everything from “embarrassing” to “distasteful” to “racist as f—k.” Many wondered why SNL had to go straight for the stereotypes just because they had a Latine host.

It probably doesn’t help that SNL has only had five Latine hosts in the past five seasons (or 100 episodes). One of those hosts from earlier this season, Oscar winner Ariana DeBose (West Side Story), seemed to be a fan of the chola sketch.

    The City of Pico Rivera will be suing SNL and these two vendidas/ sellouts for a good amount of $ plus a clear and honest apology for their lack of class and taste for good comedy.
