“Saturday Night Live” took aim at the deepening scandal in Virginia, where two of the state’s top three elected officials admitted they wore blackface in college.

Kenan Thompson, one of the sketch comedy show’s four black cast members, portrayed the chairman of the state ethics committee in a room full of white cast members playing state officials.

The article goes on to state the following:

“As chair of the ethics committee I have to ask, has anybody else worn blackface in college?” an exasperated Thompson asks.

The state officials then went through various examples of wearing blackface, expressing uncertainty over whether each scenario would be inappropriate.
