Maya Rudolph Impersonates Rachel Dolezal, Hilarity Ensues

Two weeks ago, Rachel Dolezal made the headlines for impersonating a Black woman and serving as the president of the Spokane, Wash. chapter of the NAACP. She was met with much warranted criticism and Black Twitter hilariously started #AskRachel. Some pointed out that former Saturday Night Live cast member Maya Rudolph would be perfect to provide an impression of Dolezal.

When Rudolph, who is the biracial daughter of singer Minnie Riperton and composer Richard Rudolph, visited Late Night with Seth Meyers, she hilariously and successfully played the role. Rudolph and Meyers reenacted the viral video of a reporter asking Dolezal if she was, in fact, African American.

Watching the hilarity ensue in the video below.
