I actually teach about the horrors of white people traveling the world and having sex with poor Black folks in the Caribbean and in Africa. #SNL just did a comedy sketch about it. pic.twitter.com/4b9GmJsCJx

We usually love a bit of #SNL but that Africa sketch was a disgrace and tone deaf. Everyone knows Adele is my fave but I'm ashamed she took part in it. 😔
